Sometimes, though, they wonder if their horse really wants what is best for them.
The frustration you feel when your horse stops dead at the most innocuous fence on the course or simply refuses to jump the ditch or enter the water. You become more red in the face as you kick and kick with no reaction. Everyone is watching and you simply don’t know what more you could have done.
Leaving the Show Jumping with the dreaded 4 faults (AGAIN) thinking, “why can’t I just do it right the whole way round?”
“My rounds just don’t flow and I just cannot see that stride that everyone talks about”. 🤦🏼♀️
You either grip on with trepidation, shortening your reins at every leap sideways.
OR You feel the anger or doubt swelling inside you every time your horse stops dead and threatens to run backwards. You don’t want to be angry and you most certainly don’t want to be scared.
So what can you do???
The journey is about to begin and you are full of excitement? You tuck her into her stable/stall and a small doubt starts to nag you…
What do I do now? Am I good enough to train this gorgeous horse? How do I train her to want to do all the things that I want her to do?
Are you one of the lucky people that seem to be on a winning streak? Everything you do turns to gold and rosettes are piling up. You start to think, am I ready to move up? Am I good enough?
What if it all goes wrong and I scare myself or worse my horse?
After decades of teaching, these problems and so many more come up time and time again. The good news is, they are not as difficult as you might think, once you know how.
Before this, I was lucky enough to win
And while I did learn a large amount about training horses whilst competing at the top level, it has been during the subsequent decades of teaching where I have learned the most.
It is during this time that I developed the “Greenprint” for confident jumping. It is my fundamentals, the foundation upon which you can progress as well as revisit when things don’t go to plan.
For the last 45 years I have travelled the world giving clinics and helping riders and horses develop their partnerships. Grassroots riders all the way up to Elite International Riders
I realised I wasn’t reaching enough riders and only those who could afford it so…
Could people really learn to train xc and jump online?
Since we started, 3 years ago, 1000’s of riders have signed up to the Membership or joined my courses and the feedback is phenomenal.
We all care deeply about our horses and are often scared that we are training them ineffectively.
The big question is…
My XC training principles apply no matter what your discipline. As soon as you join The Lucinda Green Academy you are granted instant access to:
Lucinda’s SYSTEM (aka The “Greenprint”)
to train a horse to trust his rider and therefore love his job (whatever that job may be)
Life with horses is two steps forward and one step back. But the best keep pushing forward.
None of us want to hurt our horses or ourselves or mess up our plans. We want to be prepared for anything that might be ahead.
And avoid the embarrassment of the walk of shame.
And a dollop of support and encouragement (which is the secret sauce of the Academy)
Many people might have given up on Go On but we stuck to the Greenprint plan and look what happened – in one year he went from running backwards at anything and everything to flying round his first 3* with his ears pricked and loving the sensation.
The process I followed with Go On is exactly the same as what I teach in the Academy.
How does the Academy work?
As soon as you join the Lucinda Green Academy,

“I joined to learn from Lucinda and solve a specific issue I was having. The support I’ve received and friendships I’ve made along the way have made the journey even better! I absolutely love this Academy.”
I needed a new focus for me and my love of all things horse, plus Lucinda is a long time hero of mine. The friendships are a big bonus!
I joined initially to learn from Lucinda – but that’s just one element (albeit a crucial one). The community is wonderful and the way everyone supports each other is brilliant. There is absolutely no judgement. All the guest talkers are inspirational and always happy to talk openly to us. Rachael is a total breath of fresh air and makes everyone feel welcome. The whole thing just “works” and has become very important in my life. I just love everything about it!
I have always loved Lucinda’s expert commentary, but to have this wonderful insight, knowledge and experience given in such a generous and personal way is beyond amazing. Thank you so much
