Clinics and Workshops
Our motto is that “awareness is the greatest agent for change“. Awareness can come in many forms but often is the result of new knowledge, understanding and skills. As a horse owner you want the best for your horse and in order to know how to best help your horse, you need knowledge. But it’s not enough to have lots of knowledge, you need to be able to apply your knowledge. That’s where skills come in!
To help you develop those skills and apply your understanding, we offer a range of horsemanship and informative equine workshops and clinics throughout the year.
For more information, check out the details below.
For upcoming workshops, check out our Events Calendar.
If you are interested in hosting a workshop at your own property, agistment centre or club, feel free to contact us to discuss our availability.
1 to 3 days clinics
Andrew teaches several horsemanship clinics throughout the year, catering for beginners to advanced riders. Clinic themes range from ground and in-hand work, learning footfalls and lateral work under saddle to mechanical cow practice. Andrew is available to travel so if you are interested in hosting a clinic with Andrew at your own property contact us to discuss.
Young Horse & Groundwork Days
Building a solid foundation
Our groundwork days build a solid foundation on the ground with your horse which allows you to progress more safely and easier under saddle. Groundwork builds a horse’s confidence and softness and is also vital to help the horse to use its body in a way that contributes to lifetime soundness. We also play fun games with the horses and get them used to ‘scary’ objects.
Hackamore and Bitless riding
Developing soft communication
The traditional hackamore (made from a rawhide ‘bosal’ and ‘mecate’ aka reins) is an amazing tool to improve and soften communication with your horse. Many horses who struggle to be happy and forward in a bridle, undergo an amazing transformation in the hackamore. Like any tool, it requires knowledge and skill to use correctly. Our hackamore days are a great way to determine if it is a useful and safe option for you and your horse. We also cover other styles of bitless bridles and discuss their pros and cons.
