These Training Days are run for all abilities, for adults and children to help every rider at every level
Please remember not many people arrive knowing anyone else but by the end of the day you will have made strong friendships and have had lots of laughs. Our aim is to learn and have fun with likeminded people – If you are willing to learn we can help. The groups are split but riders can move groups if they wish.
Advanced Ride – Adult & experienced children/horses/ponies
These riders are riding already at BE BD or BSJA Level or are ready to start competing at that level & want to know if they or their horse are up to it. Time is made to answer all questions and to help you chose venues.
Intermediate Ride – Adult & Children - These are horse/pony & riders who are confident can ride well but need that extra experience before moving in to the advanced ride.
Novice Ride – Adult & Children
These riders/horses/ponies need confidence building either on the flat or jumping or both. They are happy to have a go at everything but just need the encouragement & push to move on.
Mini Riders - (morning only)
We ask that the mini riders can ride off lead rein and are willing to try what the Instructor asks of them. Mums & Dads are encouraged to say and watch. The emphasis will be confidence building, riding with style in walk & trot and learning how to canter or jump little jumps in a controlled way. They can learn through instruction and play (games) and pole work & grids. They will learn how to lead, to do a show in hand and ridden. As most will be very young, we will only run a mini ride in the morning. If any rider wants to ride all day, they can join a mini ride in the morning then join a novice ride in the afternoon.
A good lunch is included in the Training Day price. If you have any special dietary requirements please write on the booking form below when you book in. If any spectators would like lunch please fill in the appropriate part of the booking in form and pre pay the £5 per extra lunch when booking in, in advance.
