Upcoming Courses


Developing a connection at Liberty 1 day Workshop

351 Hamptons Road, Broadfields, Christchurch 7676


Type: 1 day Workshop
Level: All levels
Savvy: Liberty

THE MISSING LINK IN MOST HORSE-HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS IS... CONNECTION! Is your horse hard to catch? If you drop the rope do they run off or check in with you? Or is your horse constantly pushing into the halter when lunging/playing on line and looking out on the circle? Is your horse distracted and looking off into the distance? These are all signs your horse is not connected to you. This is the perfect workshop for someone wanting to strengthen the relationship with their horse by developing a connection at liberty. Whether you have played at liberty before or not, this workshop will cover theory, simulations and practical sessions with your horse. You will learn how to read your horse, know what strategies to use when your horse is not connecting with you, from being hard to catch or leaving you mentally while playing, so you can develop a stronger connection. Playing at liberty can be a lot of fun for both you and the horse when you use psychology and take care of your horses needs. Numbers are limited so be in quick so you don't miss out!

Happy horse 2day Clinic - Confidence and Speed Control

Christchurch - Venue yet to be confirmed


Type: 2 Day Clinic
Level: Beginner - Intermediate
Savvy: Online and Ridden

To create a great partnership with your horse, it is important to have a strong foundation - clear communication and a blue print to follow on how to develop our horses so they can become calm, confident and reliable partners, all the way up to happy athletes depending on what our goals are and what we intend on doing with our horses whether that be riding down the beach/trail riding, dressage, jumping, endurance or barrel racing or any other sport you are interested in. A BIG part of that foundation is having your horse confident and having Impulsion - or speed control. Impulsion is controlled forward energy where your 'Go' equals your 'Whoa'. I see so many people struggling with issues such as "My horse won't go" or "My horse keeps trying to run off" or "My horse jigs on the trail and won't relax". On this course we are going to delve into the reason for these issues such as saddle fit, rider balance, connection, relaxation, responsiveness and much more. You will learn about using psychology in your training and I will break it down into easy to follow steps on how to build a confident partner who has a great 'go button' and an equally great 'stop button' and all the transitions in between! If you got in your car and the brakes wouldn't work, you would immediately take it to the mechanic and get that fixed because you know the potential risk of injury or even death! You would do the same as if the accelerator was stuck and you couldn't stop your car from speeding up. Why do we put up with horses that don't listen to our request and take over? As the saying goes "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten" If you and your horse are not happy and are challenged with having reliable speed control, then this is definitely a clinic you don't want to miss!!! Who can come to this clinic? Anyone who is able to ride at walk and trot (cantering is optional but will be covered in the clinic). This is the perfect clinic to continue on with after you have created a language on the ground and are now wanting to take that communication into your riding. We will cover both Ground skills and ridden on each day of the clinic. Clinic starts at 9am and finishes at 4.30 each day. Spectators are also welcome.

Course Cost: $385.00
Riders fee: $385
Early Bird discount ONLY $350 (if paid before 19th Aug)

Spectators fee: $65 per day or $100 for both days
