Reviews

What a simple way to improve balance, I now teach this method to all of my students, from beginners to advanced. Fiona, Toronto, Canada

I am now much closer to achieving a truly ‘independent seat’. Feeling secure and confident. Bring on the next book! Megan, Cambridge, UK

This book is very easy to follow and has saved me money. My own instructor is great but she does not cover these fundamental basics. Thank you Jane for making it so easy to improve my riding, Jan. Kent, UK

About Jane Myers - AKA The Horse Rider’s Mechanic

My name is Jane Myers and I hold an MSc in Equine Science, I am also known as The Horse Rider’s Mechanic and I run a business, Equiculture, with my best friend and husband Stuart Myers.

Our business Equiculture (www.equiculture.com.au) promotes responsible, sustainable and ethical horse ownership through education. This includes safety, welfare, horse management practices and environmental management.

Informal biography - Jane Myers

I have been horse mad (obsessed) since very young. At the age of ten I set out to wear my parents down and eventually managed to get my first pony at age eleven. This first pony was shared with my best friend and we paid for her upkeep by working at the stables where she was kept (we lived in the suburbs of a large industrial city in the north of England) and by doing paper rounds.

I was born with a significant hearing loss and went through school without hearing aids. Consequently I didn’t do very well at school, I only learned to read properly at the age of eight. Throughout school I sat at the back of the class and day-dreamed about horses for pretty much all of the time. I was classed as a ‘slow learner’ and was placed in remedial classes for most subjects.

By secondary school I had perfected the art of being invisible, pretty good for a very tall uncoordinated adolescent, and so I was able to carry on with my daydreams about horses uninterrupted. My school did not mind if you did not apply yourself, as long as you did not cause trouble, so I managed to attend the final three years without putting pen to paper - literally. Every minute that I was not at school I was with my horse or working to pay for the upkeep of my horse.

I left school at sixteen without a single exam pass result and started my first job with horses. After several years of very hard labour for very little pay I decided that I need some qualifications.

I had met Stuart when I was sixteen while doing that first job with horses and he (having had a far better education than myself) encouraged me to go to college to obtain a degree and eventually university where I obtained a Masters Degree (in Equine Science). Those two years of studying for my Masters Degree were incredible and I will always be immensely grateful for being given that opportunity for further education.

Stuart also needed to obtain a degree as we wanted to emigrate from England where we were both born. Stuart completed a degree in Community Studies and eventually worked in Youth Services both in England and later in Australia after we emigrated.

We now spend part of each year in Australia and part in the UK, travelling, writing, lecturing and researching.

Finally getting a good education was one of the best things I have ever done and I firmly believe that education is the key to almost everything that is important in life (along with health). I believe that anyone can learn more at any stage in their life if they have the desire to learn.
