Raise your hand if you're sick of getting on your horse & working on the same thing everyday - but it doesn't feel like it's getting any better.
You have this vague idea of how you want your horse to go, but you have no idea what to do to get your horse from they are now, to that point.
"So why bother trying?"
There you go again, stuck on the same 20m circle thinking "isnt this riding thing supposed to be fun?"
Inside the Foundational Series, I'm setting you up to make sustainable progress by giving you all the tools you need to be able to get on your horse & know exactly what you need to do to achieve your goals.
WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR RIDING DO YOU FIND YOURSELF LISTING OFF THE THINGS YOU & YOUR HORSE CAN'T DO RATHER THAN THE THINGS YOU CAN?
"My horse isn't listening to me""My horse doesn't go on the bit""My horse isn't comfortable to ride"
Do you find yourself making excuses like "I'm not good enough" or "my horse isn't fancy enough" to try & convince yourself that you're not wishing for better.
What if I told you that these things are not your limitations.
If you find yourself having these thoughts then I guarentee you there is a foundational element that's not clicking for you.
The good news is - I can help you turn those thoughts around & make the dreams you don't dare to dream your reality.

TELL ME IF THIS SOUNDS FAMILAR...
You've had lessons, attended clinics, sent your horse away for training... and while it feels good in the moment, none of these things have made you feel like you know what you're doing when you get in the arena on your own.
At home you get on your horse feeling overwhelmed, frustrated & defeated because you can't seem to replicate that feeling you had when you had a professional in the arena.
You do all the things they said but instead of feeling like all the pieces have fallen into place, it feels like a hot mess which leaves you feeling even more confused so you stick with what you know so you don't want to risk ruining your horse.
IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY...
What if you went into your lessons with an already established understanding of everything your coach is teaching you - so instead of having to juggle learning new things & putting the pieces together, you could just focus on putting the pieces together.
Imagine how much more sense that would make.
Instead of getting into your lesson & having to learn a whole new concept & try to train it to your horse at the same time, you can focus on having your coach help you tweak your timing, the set up, the positioning - so you can get to know the feeling for when you're back in your own arena.
THIS IS WHERE THE FOUNDATIONAL SERIES COMES IN...
By doing the learning off the horse, you are able to focus on developing your understanding without also having to think about applying it to your horse in the moment.
First we work on you, then you work on your horse.
Inside the Foundational Series, each of the 6 Masterclasses zooms in on one of the essential elements of foundational training that you need to train your horse to work correctly.
INSIDE EACH TRAINING WE...
Beth has curated everything you need to know about the topic of the training from a basic level to a higher level so you can fully understand the whole journey of that element & how it relates to your horse
Each element of training is accompanied by relevant video examples & diagrams [some of which are printable] so you can actually see what each element looks like on a real horse.
It's easy to apply what you've learned to your own horse with downloadable worksheets that prompt you to identify how each foundational element applies to your horses training.
As your training progresses, you'll find that you need to evolve your strategy for each element. Because these trainings are recorded, you can watch them over & over - it's the gift that keeps on giving.
GEORGIE'S EXPERIENCE INSIDE THE FOUNDATIONAL SERIES....
Georgie joined the Foundational Series to help her get serious about riding again after a long break & becoming a mum.
AFTER JUST THE FIRST MASTERCLASS SHE SAID:
" I justified paying for this as 'I should get more out of these than the 4 lessons it costs' - and I think I already have with just one Masterclass.
I'm taking in the info & can interpret it in my own way & it's just so much easier for me to learn this way."
"Reaching out to you has opened a door for me. My boss asked me to do some work with a couple of OTT's to rehome so I can put what I learn into play on a different level to what I am doing with my own horse."
IN JUST 3 MASTERCLASSES, GEORGIE & HER HORSE HAVE GONE FROM...
Struggling with the straightness & connection 👉🏼 having a clear plan to improve these things which is generating rapid results.
The canter feeling like hard work because it lacked a clear rhythm & uphill tendancy 👉🏼 "Improved out of sight" - now uphill & in a consistent rhythm. "it feels like you could just sit there".
Spending all her energy on just getting her horse going 👉🏼 having time to work on small adjustments because he's just coasting.
Transitions being their "biggest downfall" 👉🏼 feeling confident in them because she knows how to ride them in a way that improves them.
Feeling stuck when things aren't going right 👉🏼 being able to identify what's stopping it from working.
Her horse lacking topline 👉🏼 a visible improvement in the topline with the only change being to the training.make this transformation yours.

KERRIE'S EXPERIENCE INSIDE THE FOUNDATIONAL SERIES....
Kerrie has tried all the things. She's invested in lessons, attended clinics, she's even invested in professional training for her horses with Beth - still she chose to join the Foundational Series.
Joining the series just made sense for Kerrie as she prepared to transition her young horse from my training program back home.
By working with me in this way she has been able to get an in depth understanding of my training strategy, so she knows exactly how & why I'm doing all the things I'm doing with her horse - so when she takes him home she's not just mindlessly doing the things...
She actually understands what she needs to do to get the result she now knows she wants from a feeling, not just because I told her so.
This allows her to be so much more effective as a rider & trainer for her young horse because she now has the tools to problem solve that only come from a deep understanding of the whole training process & being able to assess where you're at.
Since working with me Kerrie has had the most amazing mindset shifts.
When I started working with her she was adament that "putting a bunch of miles on her young horse but not teaching him anything" was the right thing to do.
She has since learned that you are always training your young horse & has developed the tools to flip this mindset to start traiing her horse to produce high quality work with less "miles".
AFTER JUST THE FIRST THREE MASTERCLASSES SHE SAID:
"Love love love the series so far Beth!
Your explanations are so easy to follow & put into practice.
I joined the Foundational Series to become the best rider I can be for my horses and already it's ticking all those boxes - guiding me to have softer, more responsive horses.
I'm really looking forward to the next instalments to the series."
make this transformation yours.
I just want to put it out the that you don't have to have the best surface ever to ride on, an expensive imported warmblood or Grand Prix aspirations to start developing amazing foundations.
YOU TELL YOURSELF THAT YOU DON'T DESERVE CONSISTENT PROGRESS OR GREAT SCORES BECAUSE YOUR "DREAMS AREN'T BIG ENOUGH".
"I'll leave that to the professionals or the people with the fancy warmbloods. I'm just here to enjoy riding".
SO YOU DON'T PUSH YOURSELF.
But deep down you know it shouldn’t be this hard, you should be able to enjoy your riding more than you do now.
Because let's face it, struggling isn’t fun.
Feeling like you’re not doing the best by your horse isn’t fun…
There’s still that little girl who loves horses inside of you who dreams of dancing with her horse with the effortlessness of Charlotte, Ingrid, Isabelle… But you tell yourself that’s not for you.
Well I'm here to tell you it for you, & we are making it happen in my new Foundational Series.
HI, I'M BETH...
The Human Behind BC Performance Horses.
I believe that training your horse to feel confident in using their body correctly doesn't have to be complicated.
I get not everyone can go to Europe & become a working student having daily lessons like I did. But that doesn't mean you can't be a good rider...
I've been where you are...
TRAINING HORSES WASN'T ALWAYS SO EASY FOR ME...
What became a pivotal point for me was realising that everything that would go wrong in my riding, was happening because of a hole in my horses foundational training.
My horse was rearing vertical because she wasn't working correctly through the contact.
As a teenager I was seeing inconsistent success at competitions because the foundational elements we needed to get through the test weren't even solid at home.
I labelled my horse as "lazy" because I hadn't taught her how I wanted her to respond to my aids.
I wasn't able to ride the movements that we were working on in my lessons correctly by myself because I only saw the movement - not the how or the why behind the movement past "I need it to move up a level".
Once I learned that anything that I ever wanted to improve with a horse, whether it be a Prelim horse or an FEI horse, was improved by working on the foundational element behind that thing - everything changed for me.
I started feeling in control in the competition arena & scoring well, consistently.
When I was able to keep my horse working through the contact, she wouldn't rear.
My "lazy" horse started giving responses that got comments like: "wow, you're horse is so foward of the leg!"
I feel confident training the movements because I understand what aids I should be putting on & why, how my horse should be positioned within the movement, how to prepare for the movement in a way that makes it easy for my horse etc.
Learning good foundations changed my life.
MY JOURNEY TO GOOD FOUNDATIONS HAS TAKEN ME TO WORK WITH SOME OF THE TOP TRAINERS IN AUSTRALIA & GERMANY.
While I treasure that experience, I know it's not the path that everyone is able to take.
WHICH IS WHY I CREATED THE FOUNDATIONAL SERIES.
To give riders like you access to the knowledge that I didn't have before going overseas - that I woldn't have if I didn't go overseas & make this my entire life.
Because the more riders with this knowledge, the better the world is going to be for our horses.
THE FACTS ARE THE FACTS.
THESE TRANSFORMATIONS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.
