Centered Riding Clinic with Deb Murphy

Deborah Murphy, one of Babcock Hill's Instructors, is a USDF Associate Instructor and Centered Riding® Instructor Level ll. Also is well versed in Dressage and has more recently become very interested in Western Dressage as some of her students want to participate in this fast growing, fun and friendly, discipline.


Centered Riding founder, Sally Swift, developed the principles of Centered Riding (Breathing, Soft Eyes, Centering, Building Blocks, and Grounding), using functional anatomy, imagery, horse and rider biomechanics, and elements from the martial arts as tools to improve the balance and effectiveness of the rider.


"The ultimate goal of Centered Riding is not to be a discipline unto itself. It must go forward in its purest and least complicated form so that it may be integrated into all disciplines of riding."   Sally Swift


Whatever your discipline, Centered Riding enhances it! Come join us for this fun clinic. Deborah is VERY positive, and has tons of patience, believing that the journey of progress, in riding and training should be fun and rewarding for all participants. 


The fees for the clinic are $100 for the day. If you need a school horse it is an additional $35. $25 to audit.  Lunch, Pizza, will be provided.
