CLINICS / LESSONS

OUTLINE

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Clinics are aimed at, and are suitable for, everyone regardless of their chosen equine discipline.  Rider numbers on Clinics are strictly limited to ensure that everyone gets plenty of one-on-one time with Scott.  This also helps create a positive and encouraging learning environment for everyone to learn and feel comfortable to ask for help and to ask questions.  Riders need to be able to comfortably walk and trot without assistance to participate Clinics.  If you are interested in having a Clinic in your area please contact us and we can endeavour to get one booked in.  A description of the different Clinic types are outlined below.  Please see the Events page for all upcoming Clinics.

LESSON DAYS 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Type: Groundwork, ridden or a mixture of both

Description: Lesson Days are held at least once a month (mixture of Saturdays/Sundays).  You will be allocated a one-hour timeslot which can consist of groundwork only, ridden only, or a mixture of both - whatever it is that you need assistance with we can cover as part of your lesson!  The lesson timeslots are one-on-one to enable individual, tailored assistance and to work through things in detail.  

Suitable for:  Everyone!

Duration:  1 hour 

Booking Limit: Maximum of 5-7 timeslots available per Lesson Day (depending on time of year)

 

GROUNDWORK CLINIC

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Type: Groundwork only

Description: Working on groundwork to ensure everyone has tools to keep themselves and their horses safe.  Scott can help each individual with any particular issues that they would like to work on/improve or any issues that arise during the Clinic.  The groundwork forms the cornerstone for future ridden education (or improving existing ridden work!) and therefore directly relates to riding.  Towards the end of the Clinic we will also put the skills you've learnt into practice with some basic obstacles which are also great for building confidence (and fun!).

Suitable for:  Young horses (i.e. weanlings,  yearlings etc) as well as older horses to improve ground skills/manners.

Duration:  2.5 hours

Booking Limit: 6

DEVELOPMENT CLINIC

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Type: Mixture of groundwork and ridden 

Description: Starting with groundwork to ensure everyone has tools to keep themselves and their horses safe and then moving on to ridden work.  There is no set format as what is worked on will depend on the individual people/horses and what they need to focus on/issues that arising during the Clinic.  As a rough guide we will work on fine-tuning the basics on the ground and then undersaddle so that they become more consistent and correct - once these basics are established this enables Scott to task/challenge individuals with more advanced exercises.  Those who want to get safe for have lost confidence can work on the basics/building confidence and those that have the basics working consistently and correctly can take things to a more advanced stage which means everyone can be tasked/challenged according to where they and their horse is at.  Towards the end of the Clinic we will also put the skills you've learnt into practice with some basic obstacles which are also great for building confidence (and fun!).

Suitable for:  All horses that are started undersaddle.

Duration:  1-2 days 

Booking Limit: 8-12 (depending on Clinic length and venue)
