Just some course customer comments to date:

"nice, relaxing, informative", "I really learned from the course - it helped me to understand my horse!", Most enjoyable - would thoroughly recommend your courses to any caring horse owner!", "a great opportunity to see the horses free-schooling", "I am looking forward to using what I've learned today with my horses", "Enjoyable, very intellectual, opened my eyes!", "I've learned so much in a short space of time",
"Thanks goodness I took this course - my horse will thank me!"

Please note, the following courses are taught using my horses (it's easier for you to learn with horses that know what to do!) you can then take this knoweldge away and work with your own horse.  If you would like training with your own horse this can be arranged as a 1:1 session either at your yard or here. My courses have a maximum of 6 students to ensure 1:1 tuition.  Alternatively, if you have 6 people I will run any of the courses at your venue.

The following 1-day courses are also available and cost £65pp per day:
