ABOUT WENDY MURDOCH Wendy is an internationally recognized equestrian author, instructor, and clinician. She teaches her students how to do what great riders do naturally. Her desire to understand the function of both horse and human and love of teaching capitalizes on the most current learning theories in order show riders how to exceed their own expectations.  In 1984, while attaining her master’s degree in equine reproductive physiology, Wendy suffered a severe riding accident. Her self-rehabilitation started a quest to understand and answer the question of how to ride pain-free, using the body as it was designed. Wendy’s uncanny ability to find and study with the best people in a variety of fields and her profound curiosity make her unique.

Her studies include an apprenticeship with Sally Swift, as well as extensive training with Linda Tellington-Jones, Dr. Joyce Harman, Jon Zahourek (Anatomy in Clay®), and Dr. Hilary Clayton. To help her guide students toward better function, Wendy became a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner® and continues her study with Dr. Feldenkrais’ first assistant, Mia Segal. Her fascination with the mind/body connection between horse and rider has led her to explore courses outside the equine world and bring that information to her students.

Wendy combines her creative talents with her scientific training to break down larger concepts of riding into simple, easy-to-do exercises for students of all ages, abilities, and disciplines. Her ability to make learning enjoyable, engaging, and fun through in-depth presentations—both mounted and unmounted—which are easy to comprehend, helps her students “connect the dots” and achieve their riding goals.

Wendy writes articles for a wide variety of magazines and is a regular contributor to Eclectic Horseman Magazine.
