Elegant (el·e·gant) ~ gracefully refined and dignified, graceful in form or movement, excellent, fine & superior.
Dance ~ to move rhythmically.
Horsemanship ~ the art, ability, skill, or manner of a horseman.
Isi Seiyr is the very highest form of all horsemanship and discipline. Encompassing the truth behind how horses learn. Overcoming the mental and physical demands of challenging ourselves to be the best. Exploring the strongest bond of trust between horse and master. Gaining the ability to better observe and interact in the world around us.
Throughout our lives we each decide our personal beliefs and values. Whether based on our own knowledge or our culture, we have lines that define us. Isi Seiyr is based on the principle that life, like a dance, is an ever changing and redefining process. Through our interaction with horses we believe it is possible to start on the path of becoming more aware of ourselves, our values, our horses and the world we live in. To drop all assumptions and see what truly is.

Barbara Lippmann, Previous riding experience in Pittsburgh. After four months of lessons with instructor Kyli Jordan ~ “Hi I'm Barbara. I started with Isi Seiyr in April 2013 and before that I had been riding four years ago in Pittsburgh, and really enjoyed my time with horses.
English is not my mother tongue, but Kyli is always able to bring the point to me, even when I'm short on vocabulary.
Kyli, showed me how to dance with a horse. It is so fascinating how I developed a new feeling for my body language, because of the horse’s reaction on how I move and be present. It is more like asking the horse, “Would you like to play with me?” When they respond in their way so that they are following and doing what I asked them to do, without force, it is just wonderful. Kyli works with me on my balance in the saddle, and helped me to understand that even a minimal change of my weight or not being centered in the saddle is the reason for the success of an exercise.
It’s so fabulous to work with an instructor who has the eye, the patience, and the ability to explain to you what’s wrong and how you can fix it.
It’s a development from learning the rules of riding, to understanding how to communicate in a new language.Thank you so much Kyli, I enjoy my lessons and I’m curious what we are going to do next time!”
