2 Day "Confident To Canter" Weekend
"Don't be brave, be really well trained instead."
Join us on a 2 day weekend as we offer you a unique opportunity to learn with us how to become more confident with your cantering and in open spaces using our trained calm horses and being supported by Karl and Zana, expert Rider Confidence coaches and horse trainers with your physical riding skills and psychological mind training.
On the first day we teach our regular Rider Confidence Course content with classroom sessions covering rider psychology, horsemanship and understanding how our brains work and why we can get fears.
We also teach how to deal with horse behaviors, why horses behavior the way they do - what's causing it and learning about how important our relation with horses is to become confident and have trust in each other.
The practical arena session part of the day covers how to deal with a rear, horses slipping and tripping, riders losing their balance from spooks and spins and how to fall off safely to avoid injury.
This day sets you up well for progressing to Day 2.
The horses chosen for you to ride our our super experienced horses that you can trust.
Each horse is ridden by staff first to show you how they move and their temperament so you are happy with the horse you are riding.
We work on an outdoor sand track of around 120m to give you time to really experience the horses movement without worrying about upcoming turns as in an arena environment.
We always work in small bite size chunks here so we look at breaking down the ride by working in trot first before progressing to canters.
We will cover learning NOT to balance on the reins, not to restrict the horses and how to stay balanced and still in control and fundamentally learn to have fun with our horses and cantering again!
Camping here is available for no extra charge, so bring a tent or your camper van/horsebox or we can recommend local B&Bs.
We have a country pub just a 2 min walk across estate land for good food and drinks
