SAFE HACKING COURSE

Improve your hacking abilities and ride with greater confidence outside the manege through learning effective strategies for dealing with unexpected situations.

Over the last thirty years or so, the focus on hacking as a discipline has been declining in favour of ménage based riding to the detriment of horses’ and their owners’ enjoyment of the true spirit of equestrian sport. Consequently the majority of horses have little or no education in safely coping with the outside world.

Our latest course has been created in response to your feedback to be run over one, two or three days with your own horse. It is ideal if you wish to improve your hacking abilities while learning effective strategies for dealing with unexpected situations, including everyday hazards you will encounter in today’s sensory filled world.

You will have the opportunity to expose your horse to a number of graded challenges in different environments under Avril and Michael’s support and guidance. During the course we will cover the essential elements to help you and your horse overcome worry, rushing, planting, and everyday acts of evasion such as spinning, refusing to go forward or stand and being difficult to stop.

The value of straightness and forwardness cannot be over looked and is backbone of the course.

You will have the opportunity to expose your horse to a number of graded challenges with our complete support, individually or in pairs.
