cannot really express my gratitude for what you have helped me do
so far. I feel like an important part of my life is coming back.
I face the work ahead with more confidence than I ever thought I
would have around a horse again. It is a great contribution you
are making not only to me but to many others. It isn't a job, it
is a calling and your faithfulness to it is an inspiration for the
rest of us to stay with it as well."

"Thank you for giving Star and me the foundation and communication
to build upon. I am so pleased with the light responsiveness and
confidence she has gained working with you."
"Personally I want to thank you for teaching me the importance
of communication on the ground and not just while I am riding. I
can already tell a difference with my older horse."
"The communication and understanding of horsemanship that you
are teaching and sharing is a beautiful connection that I think
many riders are looking and searching for in their various disciplines."

"What impresses me most after attending my first Ed Dabney clinic is how similar in style the truly great classical horse men/ women I've been around are. They tend to be soft spoken, not very showy and extremely calm, systematic and fair in their approach to training the horse. This is how Mr. Dabney is. There is no one who would not get something valuable out of attending a clinic from him, whether it is the constant reminder to ride like the great horsemen of Vienna (who he has studied with) with the constant weight of our seat in the saddle properly or whether it is small habits like backing the horse up after mounting every time, to create a horse that NEVER anticipates and moves forward out from under us, or the everyday ground work warm up to prepare your horse and yourself to be ready to ride- there is something for every rider. I am trying to figure out what we can do next- the clinic where you round up cows with him or the one where you learn about the principles of classical riding from him, the great thing is, this guy is fully qualified to teach both!
