One of the most rewarding ways to experience riding is to feel you “belong” on your horse in the great outdoors;
Exploring the countryside is the ultimate stress buster with the wind in your face or the sun on your back. We live this dream every day working through our unique Foundation Training System with the horses in our care.
Correct preparation and education is the key to safe hacking, and our NH based training helps horses cope with all the outside world throws at them - flags, flapping plastic, umbrellas, wheelie bins, or sudden explosions. Being comfortable to walk calmly in open spaces among a field of sheep is a priceless gift for the leisure rider.
The perfect all-rounder needs a widening education to deal safely with sudden and unexpected situations they are never exposed to inside a manege. We have taught these skills to hundreds of horses for more than thirty years, and once they graduate, they are are versatile for activities like Le Trec, Sponsored Rides, local shows and more.
Our unique Foundation Training Programme has helped hundreds of horses overcome fear and grow in confidence to become safe dependable partners in the great outdoors. If you feel your horse can benefit from our approach to NH based training please contact us to find out how we can help. All courses are groundwork based for owners and non-owners with the exception of the Ride with Confidence course. The focus for each course is designed to help you build a healthy and fulfilling relationship with your horse
Interest in what we do is growing, and increasingly we are asked how we do it. Buying a horse isn’t only a financial investment, it’s also an emotional one. Discovering your horse has gaps in his ability to manage hacking without others for company, separation anxiety, or fear of open spaces is deeply upsetting; we receive numerous requests to retrain these horses for their owners.
For help with your relationship, or a search for that special friend, please contact us for advice and support.
