John Saint Ryan works with horses and riders in every discipline, and at
all levels, with a focus on bridging natural horsemanship techniques
with the principles of classical riding. He draws his experience
working under the guidance of Tom Dorrance, from his work with Master
Horseman Jose Manuel Martin de Leon of Spain, and Rodrigo de Costa
Mattos of Portugal. John will help each rider improve by directing
them toward a deeper understanding of their horse, and ultimately
working toward riding skills that incorporate the feel, timing and
balance necessary to lead to a light and responsive horse.
He has a reputation as a truly talented, kind and gentle horseman.
Whether he is working with Championship Show Equestrians or dedicated
recreational riders, his focus in teaching is the same: "help the
student develop a deeper level of communication with their horses and
unlock the incredible potential that each horse has to offer."
There is no trauma or turmoil in a John Saint Ryan lesson! Just
lots of fun and amazing results in connecting and communication with
your horse, no matter what your riding discipline may be.
