Our general philosophy on riding is a simple one – less is more. Riding in itself is not complicated. More often than not, it becomes complicated due to the miscommunication between horse and rider. This miscommunication often begins from a lack of education and discipline in the fundamental riding principles. When one understands the mechanics of riding, the dance with the horse becomes fluid and quiet. This dance is the beauty of floating down to a 5’9 oxer, flying over it and cantering away with a smile. We as riders should never forget that every time we sit on a horse, we are the main contributor to either educating or un-educating the horse.
To take talented young horses and educated them in a system that the American market can profit from and to teach students how to improve their showing success by simply following a consistent system that is healthy for the horse’s body and mental happiness. The riding system Trans-Atlantic has embraced and teaches is one, which enables the rider’s understanding of how to mold and control the movements of the horse by his or her balance and body aids. It’s of importance to Charlotte that when anyone purchases a horse from Trans-Atlantic, that they can easily manage the future success of their horses. This is Charlotte’s training philosophy and she feels confident that clients will be very satisfied for many years to come with their horses.
Charlotte’s grandfather always said, “Better to choose quality over quantity.” This is her business acumen. The point of her training system is to enable clients to not only reach their goals but exceed them. Her business ethics insist that she supply both positive and constructive feedback about the horses that the clients currently own and or they are considering for future investments.
