"Well, all I can say is that it exceeded my dreams . I felt instantly at
home , I loved the way Lisa teaches , what she is teaching and the
fact that she was prepared to put so much energy into ensuring
that I 'got the message' not only with my head but with my body too .
I loved the way she has incorporated the natural horsemanship into
the training so that you can move through the levels of working with
your horse from the paddock, through to the moment when you
start to ask for connection and collection from the ground , right
through to sitting up there asking for the most particular and
gymnastic work you can. I just loved her way with the horses as
well as her way with her human students too! patience kindness
understanding .. just worked wonders : )
The detail, the consideration for the horse, the simplicity of the
technique and so the ease with which we advanced made it a great
AND what is more when I came home and started to apply what I
had learnt .. I couldnt believe how responsive my horses were to
this method.. it was so exciting. "
After attending Lisa Maxwell’s clinic for three days, I think that Lisa
truly reflects the spirit of Mr. Racinet’s training theory and
techniques. I never really understood the true meaning of
collection, until Lisa clarified this for me as I worked with her trained
schooling horses and my own horse. She is patient and generous
with her time in teaching students and horses as I imagine Mr.
Racinet was, also. I have been able to continue the training at
home and see positive progress in my horse. The techniques
enable me, as an amateur classical rider, to make progress on my
own between attending clinics. I noticed that Mr. Racinet’s
training style, as taught by Lisa, is also self-correcting for horse
and rider, so I am now riding more constructively than ever
before. As Mr. Racinet said, “The horse is always right,” I am
learning to more skillfully observe and listen to my mare. No
wonder she seems so pleased with my riding and her performance!!

From Students at Lisa's Clinics
"Many, many thanks to Lisa for her clear, calm and focused way of
sharing her passion for horses with us. I saw big changes in all the
horses, and their people, in just two days."
"I can't tell you how wonderful it was to have you here and to work
with you and my horses. Some really eye opening stuff,
inspirational on many levels. Thanks for having such a great
program to share."

"Want to thank you again for the GREAT clinic. We had 100%
positive response! Everyone agreed with your philosophy and
loved the material/info presented. Also loved your positive attitude,
focus, kindness, ability to make everyone feel successful etc etc. I
expect everyone to want to ride again next time plus a few more of
the people who audited."

This summer has been the experience of my life . . . Your hospitality
has been overwhelming and so, so appreciated. You are a very
classy woman and definitely a role model of mine. I hope to keep in
touch frequently and maybe even come back next summer. This
has truly given me direction in not only my riding but my life as well.
You have been a wonderful instructor as well as confidante and
friend. You are so lighthearted and a joy to learn from. I really do
feel blessed to get to know you as a person and work with you.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for me this

"Watching your DVD, I loved seeing my
dear JC and hearing his voice. He
would have been so pleased. You
have presented it and explained it so
"Thanks again for making such a
brilliant DVD. It's helpful to no end."
"I have successfully started and
retrained horses for many years until
this one horse. Everything I tried made
him worse, I was almost ready to quit
until I tried the jaw flexions on Lisa
Maxwell's DVD. That was the key.

I just wanted to let you know I have
received the DVD and how delighted I
am with it. It is everything I had hoped
and more. It covers everything my
instructor and I have been doing in
such a clear, easy to follow manner
and has proved an invaluable 'go to'
reference for me. I am getting really
good results with my young gelding
(who unfortunately was started and
mouthed crudely before I purchased
him). It is wonderful to see him relaxing
and not treating the bit as something
to fight. Thank you! It is also so lovely
to see the late Jean Claude Racinet at
work. I hope this knowledge and
enlightened form of horsemanship
continues to spread and eventually
replace the cruder, dominating and
forceful form of riding that
predominates today. Thank you so
much for making this DVD and for
enabling Racinet's and Baucher's work
to be disseminated and spread far and
wide for those out there who have
been looking for another way and for
the benefit of the horses themselves.

Testimonials from August 2015 Clinic
It's only day two of clinic, but so much has been learned so far.
This is Lisa's fourth trip to my place and it just keeps getting
better and better. Old habits in the old body die hard, but with
Lisa's great eye and excellent instruction, progress is being
made, something my nice horse acknowledges very gratefully.
Looking forward to four more days of lessons with Lisa with a
great group of people and their wonderful horses.
Lisa Maxwell shares her gift so graciously and effectively. The
transformation of rider - horse pairs was beautiful, as were the
smiles on the riders' faces.
Taking a bit of time to relax and write a huge THANK YOU to
Lisa Maxwell for making the long trip to New Mexico for a
wonderful clinic. Lots of great learning, lots of good times,
happy riders and even happier horses. And best of all, many
new friends. Thanks to all who participated with horses and also
lots of avid watchers from the sidelines. I'm already starting to
plot for Lisa's return next year. There's just too much more to
learn and I feel that we are all just scratching the surface of the
wonderful instruction that Lisa has to offer. Just can't stop
