Founder of Centered Riding, Sally Swift revolutionized riding by showing that good use of the human body makes a world of difference on horseback. Early in her work, she established what she calls the ‘Four Basics’ — centering, breathing, soft eyes, and building blocks — which, together with grounding, are the main tenets of her method. Sally’s second book Centered Riding 2: Further Exploration doesn’t replace the first one—it complements it. Over the years, Centered Riding continued to evolve, and Sally inevitably developed many new concepts and fresh imagery, all of which are presented in these pages. In addition to these additional riding techniques, Sally concentrates more on the horse than she did in her first book, and she explains in great detail how through the use of Centered Riding you can improve your horse’s musculature and way of going—and consequently, his comfort and performance.
Sally Swift received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Riding Instructor Certification program, she was inducted into the United States Dressage Foundation’s Hall of Fame (an honor reserved for those who have had a major impact on horseback riding), she was presented with the seventh annual Equine Industry Vision Award by Pfizer Animal Health and American Horse Publications (an award that recognizes innovation, ingenuity, and service across the entire equine market) and the US Equestrian Federation Pegasus Award, which recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to equestrian sport.
