Hi! My name is Leigh-Ann Verge. I'm the owner and head coach at Aisling Ridge Equestrian Centre located on the Niagara escarpment in beautiful Grimsby, Ontario. I have more than 30 years experience riding with horses and more than 20 years experience as a certified level 1 coach. I have a passion for learning and for teaching others what I believe in; somatic-based interactions with horses by putting the horse first.
In my early years I rode and competed in every english discipline; Hunter/Jumper, Pony Club, Eventing/Combined Training and Dressage. Over the past 10 years, I have focused on becoming a specialist in equine behaviour and communication as well as rider biomechanics. This has truly enabled me to do what I love... Empower People, Empower Horses. By understanding and listening to our horses we can find harmony with them and ensure their physical, emotional and mental well being in our world. I make it my goal to always be an advocate for the horse.
I am also a certified Equine Body Worker as well as a Certified Level 2 Equestrian Tai Chi Instructor. I am constantly looking to improve myself on all levels so that I can pass that knowledge and experience along to my horses and students.
