Moira Richardson – 5 starWhat a superb and interesting session I have just had on the dressage simulator mechanical horse - which, by the way, has the most fab temperament! I had suspected that part of the problem my horse was having with getting right canter lead, was in part due to me blocking it somehow. The analysis clearly showed that I was applying more pressure with my right leg than left. With Sharon's help, I was able to take time to think about my position and learn some new tactics/ideas to help me maintain correct alignment when my horse is doing its best to alter it to her way! Looking forward to trying it all out for real!! Thank you!
Liz Pears – 5 starReally useful, and great advice given how to correct position imbalance, tension etc. Great fun too as a group, get yourselves there if you haven't been already.... We are already planning the next visit !
Hi Sharon I tried to share the post from my
wall Pete Daynes Equestrian but couldn't do it! Thanks for a great day out we all enjoyed it and came away having learnt plenty.
'Always willing to learn & try something new - today a visit to Centaured Sport Lincoln. In the company of some good friends/clients I was put through my paces, and was then able to observe them from a different perspective. Sharon was very welcoming & knowledgeable, involving me in some of the training of the others to further broaden my knowledge.
Would highly recommend to others to visit.'
At the age of 27 my chronic back pain was diagnosed as the degenerative and incurable condition of Ankylosing Spondilitis. My specialist advised me that at this stage it could be managed best through improving my core strength, posture and flexibility.
I have recently added the mechanical horse to my exercise programme and after only a few sessions I’m already standing up straighter and have greater flexibility than I’ve had in a decade.

I bought Jake as a schoolmaster for hacking out, he turned out to be a little more horse than I bargined for, he was also very strong in canter. It had got to the stage I was losing confidence. My biggest fear was cantering. In my head I'd built it up out of all proportion and decided I couldnt cope with the violent transition from trot to canter and that I didnt have the right technique to be abe to pull Jake up. A friend sugested having a go on the simulator, its the best thing I could have done. Just getting the feel of the canter in a safe enviourment and being able to concentrate on what I was feeling and learning to relax put my fears to rest. At the end of my first session I was laughing at how easy the movement was. Since then I have ridden a friend's horse, which is quieter than Jake and enjoyed cantering out on a hack. In spring when the lighter nights draw out I'm looking forwards to taking Jake out hacking with friends and being able to enjoy it. Miss C Wilkinson
After being out of riding due to having a baby, getting back into riding and trying to find childcare can be difficult, However I'm able to take my little girl to the sessions with me and it's never any hassle. I'm also having coaching with my show pony and have seen a great improvment with my riding as well as my pony's responce to what I'm asking of him. Miss S Kerry Aged 19
Having purchased a 4 1/2yr TB mare back in 2012, I asked for some help in educating my mare and myself. Sharon came to teach and help me with valuable lessons, from the basics through to jumping and dressage. We spent a lot of time on taking things steady with Tatti as she was young. In the mean time I also had help in regards to myself, in understanding why I did certain things e.g. dropping my left hand etc., how to relax myself and the horse. Sharon helped me through all the ups and downs of training a young horse. When she started Centaured Sport, it was a fantastic, as I could ride and perfect my rider errors without having to worry about my youngster picking up my bad habits. It helped me improve my seat, balance and also made me ride in a way I never realised I could. All this has helped me with Tatti's education and we are now SJ, Dressage, Hunting and ODE's and we are going to hopefully affiliate at the end of this year.
Sharon/Centaured Sport have helped me so much,and still does, with everything. I cannot thank her enough.
