June 24th 'Hands On and In-Hand' Demonstration - Higher Langdon Barn, North Bovey. 2 - 4.30pm
Many physical issues and injuries and 'behavioural' problems can be prevented or best deal with by spending time with your horse on the ground and becoming familar with his body. We will also look at how daily handling can create either tension or relaxation, which often impacts on how the horse feels and functions under saddle. My Iberians will demonstrate how different horses carry themselves, how we can identify areas of physical and mental tension and what we can do to help alleviate this through basic massage techniques in combination with training on the ground. This will include working on the halter, the lunge and in-hand from the bit. There will also be cakes. Need I say more? Booking essential - £15 per person. Please email email@example.com or call on 07398139463.
June 30th-July 2nd. Clinic - SW France. Please get in touch for details
July 28th-30th. Horse Camp Light (Intermediate) Higher Langdon, North Bovey, Dartmoor. - A weekend of fun with horses (it is possible!). Two nights and two days of lessons, riding out over Dartmoor, a mini gymkana for adults, and some talks. The focus of the weekend will be on developing great partnerships for hacking using classical approaches to training. Lessons will develop our horses responsiveness and level of understanding, and will look at the physical demands of hacking and how our schooling feeds into this. We also want to check that we are not relying on pushing and pulling when we leave the arena.
Dartmoor weather always dictates play, but we will ride to the pub or have a picnic on the moor. There will also be a mini 'gymkana for adults' utilsing old classics such as the sock race to really check our schooling holds! There are a maximum of 6 spaces to ensure quality of experience. £230 per person, £100 deposit to secure place. The weekend is designed for horses and riders who are already confident riding outside of the arena.
