Monthly clinics on the first Sunday of each month.

TEST RIDING CLINICS

I am now running a test riding clinic every other Sunday at Court Farm Stud. The aim is to work on your test riding skills i.e. presentation and the horse’s way of going, showing the judge what they need to see to give you the higher marks.

We can work to improve tests you know, to learn a new test or even go up a level. Tests can be in either a 20 x 40 m or 20 x 60 m arena. Eventing or British Dressage.

Also happy to help with freestyle to music tests.

Why not use the opportunity to video for an online competition? I can help you warm up and work on the test before you video your entry.

 

Each session is approximately an hour long and is available for individuals £45 or shared £60  prices include arena hire
