   Watch Promo   Enroll in Course

“Only a rider in the correct position can give the correct aids.” The number one thing YOU can focus on and correct if you want to improve your riding is your position. The good news is that you don’t have to buy a new fancy horse to work on your position and now is the perfect time to work on and correct your bad riding habits.

Do you have trouble sitting the trot? Do you struggle to canter your horse? Are you crooked in the saddle? Are your hands unsteady? Do you lock up your hips in the lateral work? Do you want to become a more effective rider? Do you want to have a better seat? If yes, this course is for you!!

This will be an intense 6 weeks of work starting immediately upon enrollment on correcting and perfecting your riding position! You can expect to have some "light bulb moments," struggle to fix bad habits, learn specific ground exercises to improve your riding, and work through the material with a supportive community of riders (and you instructor of course 😁) in the private Facebook group!

This is a 6 week course and each week new videos, worksheets, and exercises will get released.

Week 1: Riding Position Basics

Week 2: The Seat

Week 3: The Legs

Week 4: The Hands, Arms, and Shoulders

Week 5: Circles, Turns, and Lateral Work

Week 6: Asymmetric Riders and Final Wrap up

If you’re dedicated to improving your riding position this is the course for you! The course is designed to explain exactly how to move your body with the horse and effect your horse from the saddle. It also includes unmounted exercises to specifically strengthen and activate the muscles that are needed for riding. It is essential to exercise, strengthen, straighten, and stretch your body before your ride or on days you don't ride so that when you do get on, your body is ready to RIDE!!!

Here's what people are saying about the course:


"I recently participated in Amelia Newcomb's 6-Week Dressage Rider Position: The Masterclass Course. I would like to thank Amelia for a fun and easy to follow system which creates a new awareness in the flaws of rider position--no matter how long one has been riding.


Through the use of online lectures, videos, work sheets, and exercises (mounted and unmounted), I was able to isolate and focus on my body and where I lacked strength and stability in the saddle. So far I see improvement in myself and my horse's balance and straightness as well as his overall movement.


I highly recommend Amelia's course for anyone wanting to improve their riding. " -Cindy

Amelia also enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge and experience with her students. “I have been blessed with many great teachers in my career and I hope to help each and every one of my students develop a connection and solid relationship with their horses.” A passionate dressage trainer, with a goal of reaching and helping a larger number of riders than one-on-one in-person training allows, Amelia has expanded her training program to the online community.
