Author Notes: Sally taught riding professionally for ten years as a young woman, however moved on and it wasn't until she retired at the age of 62 that she returned to teaching riding. She had an awareness of the body-mind connection and its importance to the mechanics of riding well. The book Centered Riding was published in 1985 and became one of the best-selling horse books of all time. It was followed by two popular videotapes in 1986. Sally began to travel both nationally and internationally to teaching Centered Riding. She formed the organization Centered Riding Inc, and since the organization began 1,000 instructors have been approved. Now aged 85 she no longer travels, but still teaches a few private lessons and some two-day clinics.
