Horses are fascinating and perceptive creatures. Developing a thorough understanding of how a horse interprets the world around them and deliberately being self-aware as a rider, are the essential skills to a successful and fulfilling partnership. These 3 webinars follows the information in my latest book,The Psychology of Horsemanship. In ‘the old days’ I would have held an evening demonstration, but as that is not an option for the near future, I thought we could meet online.


Sessions


We will use Zoom, and you will receive an email with a link to join the session in advance. I can send you the information you will need. It is fairly straightforwards, but extra time will be given ahead of the meeting to log on.

There will be no refund of tickets available on cancellation, but they can be transferred to another seminar.

A downloadable pre-recorded version of this seminar are available on the link below if you are unable to watch live. (The live event is not recorded, for your privacy)

Perdido at the South West Iberian Show

Perdido and I ventured off to the South West Iberian Show recently. He is such a cool dude, and really looked after me. So many new experiences to tackle for us!

 

We both had a lovely time, having not been to any shows since last year.

Claire Lilley and Perdido

He coped really well with the environment, and did not bat an eyelid at anything.

We came fifth in the in-hand PRE stallions, third in ridden PRE stallion, and won first place at the Friday evening Parade class. This was our first outing in our Spanish gear, so very exciting!
