My name is Claudia J Swisher and I am the founder of the Balanced Awareness Riding Program which is a trade marked teaching method. Over the years I have road and taught everything from Western stock seat/pleasure to Jumper and Dressage, I have found the basis for all good riding is found in the classical form of Dressage. It has enhanced every discipline and given me constant oversight. I have a blog I work on when I need to get things off my chest. You are welcome to visit it at http://ofhorsesandhumans.blogspot.com/
It is a work in progress and I am always glad to hear feed back. One of my mentors had ridden and studied with the great Nuno in Portugal and then again when he toured.
Many times I have wished I could have met him and studied with him, but I can only do so now through his students and writings.
Liberty work with the horse is the best way to really communicate and become a better horseman. My love of horses started before I could own one, so my other passion of art was formed. Hours and hours were passed by sketching and painting these lovely creators.
I hope that I can learn new things from being her with you and that I may be able to share my experiences.
