About the Event

Engaging Your Horse in Obstacle Challenges: A Ground-Based Equine Agility Experience

Imagine horse agility as the equivalent of dog agility but for your equine partner. In this exciting event, we engage with our horses entirely on the ground, using online or at-liberty techniques depending on your and your horse's skill and ability levels.

During the course of the day, we will guide you in introducing your horse to various obstacles, enhancing their confidence, deepening your connection, and fostering a strong partnership.

Our morning sessions are dedicated to honing your online leading skills, after which we will gradually introduce your horse to the world of agility obstacles. As the day progresses, the afternoon session culminates in a playful "Obstacle Challenge Competition"

These newfound obstacle skills are not only fun but also have the potential to enhance your riding experience. They instil a sense of confidence and a cooperative, relaxed demeanour when you're in the saddle.

This clinic is suitable for all horses and handlers, regardless of age or breed. We especially encourage children to join in on the fun, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

If you're eager to enhance your horsemanship skills in an enjoyable and rewarding way, this clinic is the perfect opportunity for you.
