Training & Clinics

 We organise regular training sessions most of which are subsidised.

We offer regular dressage training with John Chubb at his base in Holsworthy.

We also offer regular Polework sessions with Jamie Randall in her fabulous 60m x 60m school at Northcombe Equestrian.

As well as these regular sessions, we also aim to provide more ad-hoc training as it is always weather dependant on using the range of local(ish) instructors, and making the most of some of our fabulous local venues, like Southcott XC and St Leonards.

All training is booked through our Facebook page so please look on there or contact Essie [email protected] for more info.
