Starting "In hand work"
This is how a horse moves when it is out of balance and on the forehand. Head and bum in the sky, low withers and hollow back, and hind legs out behind.
This is how a horse can move once the person lunging has been taught how to balance and engage the horse with the lunging half halt! The haunches will lower, the hind legs step under, the back and withers raise and the neck therefore naturally hangs forward as it is no longer needed to balance the horse. This allows the horse to move with double the suspension and double the ground cover.

My current price guide...

My fees for training sessions are as follows:

For me to drive to your yard for x3 or more riders having consecutive 45 minute private lessons (Max 30 min drive from Eversley, Hampshire).£45 each
On the clinics where there are x3 or more riders having consecutive 45 minute private lessons, I am also able to offer Semi - Private lessons of x2 people sharing a x1 hour lesson (if you know of someone that you would like to share a lesson with, or if the clinic is full and someone kindly offers to share with you). 99% of my lessons are private.£30 each

To make a booking if your yard is more than 30 mins away from Eversley Hampshire, x5 or more riders are needed.

Many of the lovely yards that I teach at let outsiders in for an additional arena hire fee of £5. Please see Diary Page for these dates.

All prices include my travel expenses in my local area of 30 minutes drive from Eversley, Hampshire. Training outside this area may incur additional travel expenses.

For more information please contact me.

Cancellation policy:

A minimum of 24 hours notice must be given or 50% of the full fee will still be charged if your place cannot be filled. The full fee will still be charged if you cancel your lesson on the day of your lesson.

Please only make a booking if you are happy to accept and honour the 24 hour cancellation policy.

I also offer:

Training the horse from the ground is really valuable so I also offer lessons on the art of lunging, long lining and ‘in hand work’. These can be used as both remedial and preventative training tools.

I can teach you how to gain the most out of your equipment (ie side reins, pessoa, chambon etc).

In hand square halting, lateral work and piaffe are great fun from the ground as well as helping the horse develop its strength, suppleness and co-ordination.
