The student

"I take the time to guide my students towards fluidity, so they can become one with their horse on the ground and while riding. I teach my students to connect with their horses mentally, emotionally and physically. My students learn to use their intentions, inner energy and strength of their core. They learn about the horse's natural instincts and how horses communicate inside their herd with each other." Mirka Hermanová Pitts

The equine partner

"While training a horse I focus on his overall balance. While the horse's mental connection and emotional stability are important, I have learned to pay close attention to their physical balance as well." Mirka Hermanová Pitts
