Teaching “feel” is the gift that Peggy Cummings shares with riders worldwide.
She is a master rider and teacher and has the same passion and perseverance for her mission that she began over 40 years ago. She believed then and now ‘knows for sure’ that promoting freedom of movement and reciprocity through elastic connection between horse and rider creates the magic of being ‘in sync.’ It’s the memory so many people have of being on a horse as a child. Peggy Cummings’ Connected Riding has found a way to help anyone recapture that feeling again.
Through her innovative and transformational style of teaching, Peggy has changed the way riding is taught through her principles and techniques of connection. She is currently traveling worldwide, is writing and publishing more comprehensive books on her work, and mentoring her group of talented instructors under her. She has created the School of Connected Riding™, a non-profit institute, that provides supplemental education for riding instructors of all backgrounds and equine related courses for riders of all levels and disciplines.
Peggy has written several books and educational articles. Her books include Connected Riding: An Introduction, Connect with Your Horse from the Saddle, Connect with Your Horse from the Ground Up, The Personality Archetypes of Horsemanship and The Ultimate Horse Behavior and Training Book.
