Meet Chris - ForTheHorse


Hello my name is Chris Adderson...

...and I am an equine educator and consultant, top level rider and an equine and human movement expert.

I help passionate riders confidently achieve their riding dreams and goals without fears, doubts, and overwhelm so they can ride with ease and flow.

From understanding and communicating with your horse on a deeper level to consistent, exhilarating rides, I help you clarify your riding with your partner who you are absolutely passionate about being the best you can be with.

We work with it all... In Hand, Liberty, Lunging, Mindset, and Riding to become crystal clear on your, and your horse's movement, intention and plan.

I help you to re-ignite your ultimate confidence and self-belief so that your horse willingly partners with you, in lightness, and then help you establish a step by step plan and strategy to support your growth together. This will leave you feeling confident, capable and available to step into your
genius as a rider and serve your horse.

In case we haven't met before, here is why I am qualified to help you achieve the riding success you desire. I am a sought-after clinician, having taught thousands of riders and their horses worldwide.

I've studied with, and instructed for, many of the world’s greatest classical dressage and horsemanship people such as Ray Hunt, Roy Yates, Peggy Cummings, Margrit Coates, Philippe Karl, Pat and Linda Parelli, Lee Smith, and George Malleroni, but none so great as the horse itself.  An instructor of 44 years, many of my students have become equine professionals and ridden to the highest levels.

As the founder of For the Horse I have lovingly created “horse heaven” - a supportive place for riders looking for in-depth study into the equine world.

I have rescued and rehabilitated many horses back to health and soundness, introducing barefoot principles, bodywork and movement education into many parts of the world, as well as consulted on organic land stewardship and holistic horse management.

I've been affectionately named the “Heroine of the Horses” as the recipient of the internationally recognized and prestigious, Shining World Compassion Award, for my outstanding efforts to rescue horses and to ensure their safety and well being.  

As the go-to expert for helping with rider excellence, strategies and mindset combined with my proprietary Ride The Rebound® training, I work with riders all over the world.  I am so grateful to be able to share my secrets and strategies with you.  Working on unlocking your ultimate riding success based on my tried and tested methodology is the missing ingredient from anything you've ever tried before.

For The Horse is ~ the most ultimate connection to the land and the horse’s spirit ~ combined with the ultimate connection between horse and human through the art of movement.

I am honoured to educate riders to dialogue with their horses from a point of integration – that is where we are both a scientist and therapist, a caregiver and teacher, a leader and follower and a horse and human for our horses. This will open windows of insight and open doors for change.
