Having a passion for horses isn't easy...

it’s expensive, physically and mentally challenging, and takes up almost all of the free time you have. Yet despite putting so much of effort in, you still don’t feel like you’re progressing enough …

You LOVE riding and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. You just wish you could get out of your own head and move forward, faster.
I’m here to tell you that you CAN achieve everything you want to. It’s completely possible to smash your riding goals, no matter how daunting they may seem. Progressing in confidence, skill, and ability isn’t just a case of more time in the saddle. You also need practical tools and resources, advice from world-class experts, and regular feedback and support from people who all have your back.

That’s the key to success – working smarter, not harder.

Professional riders have access to a huge team dedicated to their success – coaches, personal trainers, sports phycologists etc. We know most riders won’t have the resources, time or budget needed for that kind of professional support.

That’s precisely why The Saddle Club exists...

The Saddle Club offers you unlimited access to the expertise and guidance of riding coaches, pilates, yoga and rider bio-mechanic instructors, mindset and confidence coaches, pro-riders to learn from, and a support network of like-minded people all dedicated to improving their riding & their enjoyment of the sport.

And you get all of that for the price of a cup of coffee and a slice of cake each month.

This is the club I needed and couldn't find...
so I created it

Hi, I’m Elaine Kelly

The founder of Wise Owl Equitation

Growing up as a pony obsessed girl in a non-horsey family I’ve always had to swim against the current when it came to pursuing my passion for horses and riding. As a girl, real training opportunities for me were often few and very far between due to transport and geographical issues. Then, after becoming a mother to my little girl, time became the new constraint. Suddenly I just wasn’t able to justify a 3 hour round trip for a 45 minute lesson.

This is where the idea of Wise Owl Equitation and The Saddle Club came about, a small internet based business that passionately believes that everyone should have access to top quality training regardless of their location, budget or time constraints.

I firmly believe that all riders should have access to quality training, resources, tools and support in spite of the confines of location, trainer availability, budget and time.

My vision is to improve the lives of equestrians and horses all over the world

I’m very active in The Saddle Club myself. I look forward to seeing you in the community and getting to know you better!

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some of our members say about joining The Saddle Club

"Joining the Wise Owl Equitation Saddle Club has been so beneficial to me as a rider. The video sessions hitting on different topics riders face have helped me regain my confidence and joy back in the saddle". Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"It's definitely this group's non judgement that is helping. It feels like a nice safe place. I've just realized I'm surrounded by people who judge me a lot! The last three nights have been a real eye opener for me."
"I loved the meeting today i already feel so much better and so much more confident! It definitely helped as currently i am out of action with a knee injury from a fall but only around 2-3 weeks now till i can get on again and i feel so ready for it!! Also i wanna say a massive thank you to everyone in this group and the amazing creators because i feel so secure and so so glad that i am surrounded with people that may have similar issues as we all know what the equine community can be like at some point"
"I learnt so much through just the one video submission in an easy to understand and manageable way, I cannot wait to put all the tips in to practice. 100% recommend the platform and service, it’s wonderful all round. Cannot wait for my next one..."

Save HUNDREDS per year with The Saddle Club resources

As a Saddle Club member, you’ll pay absolutely no admin fees on any virtual training. Everyone else pays a £10 admin fee on top of any Wise Owl Equitation virtual training.

Not to mention the savings you’ll make by taking advantage of the off-saddle workout routines, self-hypnosis recordings, professional masterclasses and much much more. That’s Thousands in value for just £11.99 per month.

How does virtual training work?

The Wise Owl Equitation Virtual Training platform connects riders all over the world with top-class trainers and equine specialists.

These 1-1 video lessons are totally bespoke, live training sessions with an expert trainer. 

You’ll be on the horse with headphones in on a live video call with one of our world-class instructors.

Ideally having a friend to hold the phone while you ride will offer the best experience but this is not a necessity. Many riders use inexpensive tripods or smart tracking devices when riding alone. This will allow your trainer to see what you’re doing and give you real-time feedback and instruction.

You also don’t need special facilities, our customers take part in lessons in fields, on the beach or if they are lucky enough in their own schools or arenas.

Virtual training is not just about removing the limits of geography. Virtual training actually has several advantages over in-person training:

  • You’ll be able to hear much better with your trainer speaking directly into your ears through headphones – no more trying to hear them shout over a windy field
  • You won’t need to come back and regroup with your trainer which means more time on your horse, less time wasted and more efficient lessons
  • You can book separate lessons with specific trainers across all disciplines!

Not only do you get full access to the entire database of expert trainers – as a saddle club member you pay NO admin fees on top of lessons.

Our training and content is totally bespoke – you don’t have to spend hours pouring over endless content that isn’t relevant to your situation – we’ve structured everything so you can easily pick and choose the bits you need most, and you can choose exactly what kind of training you want, with the trainer you want.

Still have questions? No problem! Here’s everything else you might want to know...

Absolutely! The Saddle Club is for riders anywhere in the world who want to increase their knowledge, improve their performance and relationship with their horse and ultimately get more enjoyment from the sport.

Please note though: all of our content is in English, so you’ll need to be able to speak English to at least a moderate level.

We’ve created The Saddle Club to be totally flexible for you. The monthly masterclasses take up one hour per month, and everything else is completely up to you – you can pick and choose exactly what you engage with. And, because everything is recorded and posted afterwards, if you can’t make a live session, you can catch up at a time to suit you.

When you register with us, you’ll enter your card details via PayPal for monthly card subscription. This can be cancelled at any time via your Paypal account if you decide not to continue. 

No, when you sign up you’ll enter your details to begin a monthly direct debit which can be cancelled any time with no cancellation fees.

Of course you can! Whilst you may want access to a horse eventually, the Saddle Club offers a lot to prepare you to get back on the saddle, including confidence and mindset resources as well as physical fitness routines and classes. And, just being part of the community may inspire you to get back out there and ride more regularly again.

We’re committed to delivering new value every month, with new masterclasses, resources and tools being added all of the time. However, you can join for as long as you’d like to, and cancel any time.

Absolutely, many of our community members have had similar experiences, so you’ll have a group of supportive and encouraging people to talk things through with. We also have masterclasses on this topic from expert riders including Irish Olympic event rider Jonty Evans sharing his journey of recovering from his serious fall and getting back out competing.

Our confidence and mindset self-hypnosis recordings also cover falls and consequences/hurt + memories of falls.

There’s no minimum age to join The Saddle Club, but you will need your parent or guardian’s permission to participate in live lessons. The group is also hosted on Facebook, so you’ll need to meet Facebook’s minimum age requirements too.

You never have to feel alone...Join our amazing global community
