About the Event


New for 2023

Obstacle Training Is like the horse version of dog agility and is done completely on the ground with the horse online or at liberty depending on skill and ability levels. 

We will be teaching how to safely approach and introduce your horse to obstacles to build confidence, connection and partnership with your horse.

Morning sessions will be focusing on refining our online leading skills and then moving on to introduce the horse to the agility obstacles.

The afternoon session will be a fun Connection through Play Competition.

Obstacle skills can assist us with our horse riding by instilling confidence and a willing calmer attitude when under saddle.

The clinic is suitable for all horses and handlers, of any age and breed.  Children are especially welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.

So if you are looking to improve your Horsemanship skills  in a fun way then this clinic is for you
