This is a 'special offer clinic'
The venue and the forest. The first thing you will notice is the ground, you can ride here any month of the year with it being located on very sandy soil with great drainage. The tracks are mainly sandy soil/grass. There's natural jumps out and about which are optional. There's a couple of arenas at the venue which we will make use of. Lastly there's the 30,000 acres of Thetford forest to explore. Arrive on the Friday anytime from 12noon and get settled in (you can ride and explore) or just relax and meet everyone ready for the clinic starting on the Saturday through to the Sunday afternoon, then it’s time to put your feet up again! Relax in the cabin for another night and head home in the morning (or have another day riding exploring the woods).
Saturday and Sunday clinic cost is £150 for the two days tuition.
Ride approx two hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon.
We will meet in the arena at 10am run through some exercises and make sure all the horses are comfortable. We will then venue into the forest using natural obstacles to test your horsemanship skills and there’s also some open grassed areas where we can use to do exercises (controlled trotting and optional cantering). On the way there’s fallen logs which are ideal to jump (again optional).
