Train at Sanbar

Training, like the care of horses, is managed as a herd, treated as an individual.


Resident Trainer, Riana Porter, creates development plans that accommodate the needs and goals of each horse and rider whilst keeping a strong, consistent foundation in the fundamental dressage pyramid: rhythm, relaxation, connection, impulsion, straightness, collection.

Students and horses are always taught in one-on-one lessons with emphasis on independence and confidence in both partners. Riana wants her clients to develop deep connections and communication with their horses and encourages self-motivated study in and out of the tack. She works with riders ranging from Intro-Level Schooling shows to those at the CDI level.
