***Apologies for those of you who are waiting for Part 5 of the Gift Guide! I am on limited internet at the moment so uploading the pages is tricky! It will be up as soon as possible!***
In the last few months I have been receiving more and more enquiries from London based riders who for one reason or the other can’t make the journey for Reading lessons. The challenge was on to find a place that would be accessible by public transport, had at least 2 to 3 horses available for share or loan, had an all-weather arena plus ideally some field riding and hacking and also be do-able for me to travel to regularly.
Having tried a couple of places and them not meeting the criteria, this weekend myself and a couple of my lovely clients tried a little yard not very far from a hub of public transport at Ealing Broadway. The initial trial went well so we are setting off with several places available from December 2014 🙂 More information will be included in our Newsletter tomorrow and details are available via email at email@example.com.
I will continue to search for more opportunities in and near London so if you don’t manage to get a place at this yard, rest assured I am on the case! If you have any questions, please feel free to comment or email any time 🙂 Wiola
I’m sitting here having just finished the next Aspire’s newsletter – all fresh and ready to go out tomorrow morning.
If you are subscribed already look out for it in your inbox in the morning! This will be the 3rd little newsletter leaving Aspire’s press quarters and we now have over 120 readers from various countries – any feedback will be much appreciated so future newsletters can be more and more useful If you have not signed up yet, head over to our microsite here: http://aspir1.wix.com/aspireequestrian2014 and add yourself on 🙂
Those of you who are signed up to Aspire’s newsletter (you can sign up HERE) will have known by now that last month a great opportunity came about to base some of the Aspire coaching activities at a small yard near Reading. The yard is still in the process of being developed to its full advantages by the new manager but it will be ready very soon.
I had been looking for such opportunity for years so I am delighted to finally be able to invite the riders for “home” clinics and coaching rather than always travel away. There will be many exciting training options available and I will be releasing the news via this blog and Aspire social media channels as well as adding development pictures and first hand information via the newsletter.
It’s always been my mission for Aspire coaching to deliver best possible rider-centred coaching with understanding of training for wellbeing of the horse and create a learning space where sport meets horsemanship…This is a next step towards making those goals better and better 🙂 Stay tuned!

It’s my great pleasure to invite anyone who feels like spending several days doing nothing but the horses to the second Aspire GetAway to La Fiaba in Tuscany, Italy…
If you would like to wake up and start your day from bringing horses from the field, feed them and groom them; if you would like to follow this up with half a day over challenging Tuscan countryside, rider technique focused lessons, sessions on your body awareness and feel as a rider as well as use video feedback to help you progress – you might just love to check it out 🙂
It’s official! We are giving it a go and jumping into the 2nd Aspire GetAway bootcamp of 2014 🙂 If you couldn’t make the June trip and really wanted to go, here is your second chance!
Following feedback from the first tour, some upgrades and improvements will be made on this upcoming trip so hopefully the service will be better and better with each time we GetAway 🙂
The idea is simple: breathe, live, ride horses. The focus is on learning, improvement and plenty of fun.
There are very limited riding places available with 3 currently reserved and 2 up for grabs so please contact Wiola on firstname.lastname@example.org for full details and booking conditions. Non-riding companions welcome!
To get more feel for what to expect see our June video below (plenty of photos from the June trip can be found HERE)
Perhaps there is another pesky seat issue you just can’t seem to get right? Maybe you have a young horse or one with sensitive back and you would like to improve your balance and technique?
Check out our seat bootcamp sessions offer below! Come by yourself or get together with a small group of friends from the yard and boost your riding this summer All levels and ages (11+) welcome. These sessions are fun, educational and often enlightening and are suitable to improve your seat for dressage, jumping and just-for-pleasure riding (hacking, schooling at home etc).
All Aspire NewsBook readers who would like to purchase the session(s) please mention “Aspire NewsBook Special Offer” when booking to claim £5 OFF the total fee per person.
If you are not familiar with how the sessions might look like, please read more about mechanical horse training on HERE or have a look at the couple of videos below:
As some of you will know, the Aspire courses have been mainly venues based and non horse owners focused in the last three months and we know that some of you found the distance to Reading too much to travel. Starting from today (6th June 2014) we are much more mobile and available for regular lessons in many areas of London, Berkshire, Surrey, Kent (Orpington) and who knows, maybe somewhere where you are too 🙂
Give Wiola a ring, book your trial lesson now and start a very aspirational summer this year 😀
