Enhance your horse’s training programme by including lungeing, long-reining and in-hand work. Claire can devise a training programme for you to include in your horse’s existing fitness schedule.
If you are having difficulties with your horse either on the ground or ridden, and would like some help without having to travel, send me a short film or some photos of you working with your horse. I can assess you both and respond either by email or by phone.
Plus FREE taster DVD on Lungeing!
Our yard is small and friendly, so do come along!
My Masterclasses give an insight to training that you can do at home, and you do not need a horse to attend! The afternoons are great fun and very informative. As well as getting involved on the ground, you will also see a mini-demo of the subjects covered and be able to ask loads of questions. Tea and biscuits provided!
It is important to know what effect training should have on your horse. Preparatory work in hand and on the lunge strengthens the correct muscles in the hose’s body so that he can carry a rider with ease. This also depends ultimately on the rider’s ability and posture, but that is another subject. As a comparison, a 600kg horse ridden by a 60kg rider is working carrying 10% of his body weight. This is equivalent to a 60kg person working out with dumbbells totalling 6kg.in weight.
