Equicoach Online is the complete online training platform using video analysis and tutorials from a top class coach to help you on your journey.
Sarah Elebert, of Elebert Equine is one of best horse riding instructors/Coaches I could ask for.
I had a young Mare I wanted to bring to her 1st showing class within a few weeks and Sarah was the only person I trusted to train us both. The mare needed a good bit of work put into her as she could be a bit of a scatterbrain and not listen, and I am a very nervous rider. Sarah knew exactly what to do to get her listening. She showed me how to work the mare properly and within days had improved her way of going and helped me overcome my nerves, getting me more confident with using my legs. She taught me how to trust the mare and get the very best from her. And on the day of the Show we came in 2nd out of a very large showing class.
She has brought on so many young kids into their teens and adults into more confident adults through her skills and teaching mechanisms. I have seen great things from Sarah in the past and I expect to see a great many more in the coming years, and I don’t doubt she will be an amazing coach to a lot of people. I wish Sarah all the best for the future.
Horse owner and friend.
My daughter has been training with Sarah now for a few months. She is currently competing at Junior level and to say that Sarah has been a great help is an understatement.
Sarah is very clear & detailed on what we can accomplish together and has given my daughter great confidence in her and her horse's ability to set out goals and aim towards achieving them.
Going above and beyond with voice-over videos of my daughter's training and dressage tests, and discussions about her performance and homework to be done.
In a quiet yard in Co.Meath, where everything feels personal yet professional, we are glad to have found her.
I can highly recommend Sarah.
I started lessons with Sarah back in Autumn 2011. Sarah has encouraged me and built my confidence over the years.
Sarah has an amazing way with people and horses and I highly recommend her for all levels of riders.
If you want to move to the next level and don’t know how Sarah is your lady!
Sarah has been my riding instructor for many years now and during this time I have found her to be very professional and understanding of what my goals are and how she can help me to achieve them.
She often goes above and beyond when giving her advice and has a genuine care and interest in all the horses she works with.
She has also trained my children through the years and with her passion and enthusiasm for the sport has made it fun, enjoyable and progressive.
In a previous blog, “Tips for Tactical Test Riding”, I detailed some ways riders can squeeze every last mark from the dressage judge. However, in this article, I am going to backtrack a little and say that the judge’s marks and comments are not the be all and end all and here’s why… To set the scene; you have just finished your test, which you feel went quite well. No major errors, you stayed within the white boards, you both remained at least semi focused! You are cautiously optimistic ahead of the results but when they arrive, you are heavily … Continued
We’ve all been there, turn to a fence and wait to see a good stride… we wait and wait and without realising it, we are choking the life out of the canter. We are now meeting said fence, not only without having seen a stride, but also lacking the necessary energy to deal with it. This is when we usually kick and hope for the best. I am writing this article as it is an issue that seems to get into rider’s heads (speaking from experience!) and when I asked my followers and readers of The Grassroots Gazette what they … Continued
Training a young horse is exciting! With dreams, aspirations, goals and lots of potential, it’s a great position to be in. However, where do you start? In this article, I am discussing the mindset of a horse during the early stages of the breaking / training process and highlighting the importance of allowing each horse to set it’s own time frame for learning. Horses by nature are flight or fight animals and it never ceases to amaze me that they allow us to work with them at all. This innate characteristic needs to be respected as we go … Continued
