About Centered Riding: Centered Riding is a way of teaching and learning in which the focus is on the six basics – breathing, soft eyes, body alignment, centering, grounding, and clear intent.  Centered riding was developed by the late Sally Swift, the author of the Centered Riding I and II.  Centered Riding incorporates body awareness, functional anatomy, and techniques from sports psychology and the martial arts.
