Colleen Kelly biomechanics DVD?

Hello, I'm looking for some good informative dressage DVDs. Mainly focusing on rider position/aids etc. I only get to see my trainer about once a month so need to continue to progress independently in-between lessons. I was looking into Colleen kelly's DVDs. I have heard mixed things about her clinics but haven't found any reviews on her DVDs. The description sounds exactly what I've been looking for but don't want to waste my money. Are there any other DVDs you would suggest? Thanks!

I went to her demonstration once and frankly it was OK, but I wouldn't go to the clinic. I'd rather look into Jane Savoie. I found her videos and demonstration to be more helpful.

I've done a clinic with her, wasn't immensely impressed. Have got much better results from 'normal' dressage coaches.
You can always learn something from new coaches, so I don't see it as a waste of money. What works for some won't work for others, you can only give them a go :)

Oh wow I really like Jane Savoie too.

I've seen her clinics and found them immensely helpful. I'm a member of her website "Dressage Mentor" and I LOVE her teaching style. Everything she says seems doable to me. In fact I had a problem with my horse and I wrote her about it, she took the time to email me MANY times personally and help me with my problems. She also referred me to another trainer for some advanced training and that person CALLED me and spent about an hour on the phone explaining their system to me.

NO money, not selling me anything... she just called me and offered advise that has totally helped me.

I can't say enough good things about Jane Savoie. I'm kind of a newbie so maybe some of you hard core dressage riders don't have the same opinion of her but she is my HERO. I like the way she works with educating your horse in a gentle way. She's not afraid to correct if it's warranted but she goes under the assumption that the horse is usually not being willfully disobedient, but rather he just does not know what we want from him and I find that to be true with my horses.

You can check out her site I think for free for 30 days at

I wrote up a review of the DVD on my blog:
