Author Notes: Mary Wanless (BSc Physics and BSc Applied Sports Coaching) started riding at the age of fourteen. During the 1970s she worked in a number of riding establishments and passed her BHSI in 1978, after which she became disillusioned with traditional ways of teaching and gave up riding. She was soon persuaded back on to a horse, however, and combined her equestrian knowledge with experience gained by studying psychology, biofeedback, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), the Alexander and Feldenkrais systems of bodywork, Tai Chi, massage, dance, anatomy, sports psychology and educational kinesiology. This led her to develop an extraordinarily effective method of teaching, based on an understanding of the biomechanical demands of riding and of the communication styles that make riding skills easy to learn.

Mary Wanless is the author of the highly successful Ride With Your Mind (published in America as The Natural Rider), Ride With Your Mind Masterclass, For the Good of the Rider, For the Good of the Horse and Ride With Your Mind Essentials; she has also produced eight training videos. As well as teaching riders of all abilities, from club level to international, in the UK and USA. She runs dismounted workshops and gives lecture demonstrations. She also lectures internationally on learning, body-mind integration, and personal development.
