Perry Wood has spent a considerable number of years developing his unique approach to training horses and riders. His philosophy is one of empathy and understanding towards the horse, lightness and communication, self-awareness in body and mind, classical principles and real results. He lives on Exmoor where he teaches Real Riding, breeds and trains horses.
