TRAINING

 

My training packages cover two distinct areas, and draw on my extensive experience and qualifications in this field: 

1. Horse owners who would like specific help or guidance with their horses. 

I can design bespoke training for you and your horse, whether you would like an intensive 2 hour session in a specific area of groundwork/exercise, or weekly practical sessions with your horse.

My popular 3 week training course: How to work your horse effectively, covers stretching, groundwork and lunging, and is all done with your horse! 

2. Professional practical training for vet physiotherapy students

Get in touch to discuss your plans, and I can work with you to build your skills and confidence, and help you to gain your qualification. 

Training Courses For Owners "How to work your horse effectively" covering groundwork, lunging and stretches, and many more important skills to keep your horse happy and healthy regardless of your goals. I have developed informal but highly effective training sessions, and can demystify groundwork and lunging for you and your horse! I focus on making every activity simple to understand and implement, and I will work with you to identify the areas that you are struggling with the most. Most horses benefit from some non ridden exercise, to allow them to use their back without a rider on board, balance themselves without the rider, and improve their posture and core strength.  Whether you need an ongoing long term rehabilitation plan, lameness prevention plan, fitness plan, posture and strengthening plan or need help with post injury or surgery, groundwork is an important element of keeping your horse at his optimum. Typical focus areas:
  • your goals and any difficulties you are experiencing in achieving them
  • groundwork / in-hand training 
  • behavioural issues
  • corrective exercise
  • training your horse to move correctly and engage his core
These sessions would be one on one and completely tailored to your needs.  Give me a call to discuss your situation.
