Ladies Confidence Clinic

"Do you lack confidence? Or does your horse lack confidence? We can help both of you!"

Confidence with your horse comes from growing your skills, expanding your knowledge and having a range of tools at your disposal to calmly guide your horse as they learn...
 

Join us for our Ladies Confidence Clinic where we will explore the strengths and weaknesses of the horse and rider partnership amidst a supportive, friendly group of ladies navigating their own confidence journeys. 

 

Pam will help build on your horsemanship foundation, whilst providing you with specific tools to start you, and your horse, on the journey to feeling confident, both on the ground and in the saddle.

A great confidence-building environment for horse and rider combining technical skills with positivity, humour and horse respect - all the ingredients for a great day of growth with our human and equine friends.

Obstacle Clinic

​Obstacles are a great way to assess the trust and quality of the relationship and communication between you and your horse.

​The goal isn't to complete the obstacle no matter what, but to complete what you can with a willingly guided horse.  Exposure, whilst maintaining and building your horses confidence, is a great goal in itself.

​We have a variety of obstacles with new ones introduced every clinic. We use many of the high-end obstacles used in working equitation, however are not limited to just these.

Groundwork & Horsemanship Clinic

with Pam Andrew of Anstead Acres

"Your groundwork and horsemanship skills are the key to unlocking an amazing partnership with your horse, built on mutual trust, confidence, connection and leadership..."
~ Pam Andrew 

Often, as riders and horse owners, we tend to focus on what we are doing on top of the saddle rather than peeling back the layers of our relationship with our horse on the ground.  

Pam will help build on your groundwork and horsemanship skills through enhancing your ability to communicate on the ground, increasing your effectiveness and helping you to understand your horses’ response (or lack thereof in some instances!). This will be a great day of connection and understanding between you and your horse.

Chris Grant Horsemanship &
Cattle Working Clinics

Good horsemanship skills provide the building blocks which support the horse and rider in all disciplines, no matter where they are in their journey.

 

Over the past 30 years of using horses everyday in his work managing cattle properties, Chris has gained incredible insight into the horse as well as the rider.

 

The aim of these clinics are to produce a calm, confident and co-operative horse and develop a willingness in the horse to work in partnership with the rider.

 

Learn to be confident with your horse while working on the ground and gain an understanding of how these skills can translate to, and support your riding and cattle work, whatever your discipline.

"Good horsemanship is good horsemanship and should not be thought of as a fad or a style."

~ David Stuart
