"Rodrigo shared with us his two gifts
He becomes the rider...
Rodrigo Matos is a very quiet man..
"He seems to have the ability to feel each stride
through his own eyes...
"I realized I was ignoring the signals my warmbloods were
"The clinic with Rodriogo was the turning point in my riding relationship with my horse."
"Great teaching style..
"As an instructor he is very adaptive to the needs of the horse and uses simple basics to get that through to the rider. Great changes can be seen in just a few minutes."
"It was very clear that his focus was on the horse/rider combination. It was very much a private lesson.. not the typical clinic geared towards the auditors."
"Very focused clinic session.. working on just 1 or 2 movements to ensure both horse and rider complete the work successfully. Excellent instructor.. most highly recommended."
"With Rodrigo there is no rush.. no force ..no gimmicks. His focus is on improvement for the sake of both horse and rider. In his teaching there is an ever present atmosphere of 3 way communication and respect. The second day was especially productive for me because it confirmed new learning and exposed the weaknesses in my horses training. I left with very specific homework designed to help me and my horse develop relaxed forward movement."
