"I have been working with Kristen McAuslan for over a year now and she has helped me bring my young mare along beautifully. Kristen's attention to detail and the training scale have greatly improved my position and connection thereby resulting in my horse's consistently good scores when competing. I would recommend Kristen to anyone interested in improving their riding."
~ Kerrie
"Not only does By Design Equestrian Centre offer agistment; horse re-education and training is also available at an affordable price. Kristen rides at FEI level and trains her horses in a kind way rather than forcing submission – I entrusted her with my horse for two weeks and was not disappointed. The changes in him were noticeable and he’s now happy and confident going about his work as well as receiving good scores and comments in our dressage tests."
~ Dannii
"Kristen is the most dedicated and informative instructor. She has a way of communicating to the everyday person, how things are supposed to feel and why things are happening with the horse.
I have learnt so much and would highly recommend her as an instructor. She has a very special gift when it comes to understanding horses. I get inspired after every lesson and know that she gets the best out of me and my horses."
~ Wendy
