Clinics, Lectures and Demonstrations

Clinics

A two-hour clinic for up to four horses provides an opportunity to learn and have fun. At your own yard, we can focus on tackling problems from the ground, and the focus can be adapted to suit the participants.

Taking the Lead

Learn how your horse sees his world – and you! – and learn how to use his natural instincts to help you in your everyday routine, leading to increased trust, confidence and co-operation. A great way to start a new relationship or refresh a long-standing one!

Busting Spooks

Learn how to minimise your horse's anxiety when meeting frightening objects, and how to keep yourself safe while leading him past, over or through scary stuff including tarpaulins, balloons, footballs, flags and narrow spaces. The clinic can include any requested "nuisance" that can be safely and reasonably replicated in the school.

Lectures and demonstrations

Much can be learned from a talk, especially if a horse or two is on hand to help demonstrate. I can provide an introduction to getting the best from horses through understanding the way they think, and show some techniques for tackling common issues such as 'planting', dominant behaviour and nipping.

If no horse is available, that's not a problem – I can give a classroom talk using human volunteers as the horses!
