Improving Rider Performance, Confidence and Safety

Welcome to Fit to Ride - Making Riding Better and Safer through knowledge and Confidence

Fit to Ride has been designed by Jon Pitts, a world renowned Human Performance Coach who has spent years researching and working with riders of all levels to understand how the human body impacts on a horse's performance.  It is a refreshing and new way of looking at, and improving riding skills.  This innovative programme provides the rider with knowledge, tools and confidence to make their riding much better and safer. 

Fit to Ride offers three main areas of training for riders at riding clubs, pony clubs, colleges and for competititive riders : Performance, Confidence and Safety 

We are passionate about improving rider safety and as a result of our ongoing work into equestrian safety we were recognised with the Riders4Helmets Craig Ferrell M.D. Equestrian Safety Award.
