LOCKDOWN IS ENDING - Let the fun begin!
THURSDAY 1 APRIL 2021
As we all know, Polework is for everyone. Dressage riders, showjumpers, Eventers. When done regularly, polework can increase your horse’s strength and flexibility, improve their ability to engage the hindquarters, and make their paces more expressive and cadenced.
The session will involve a number of exercises over a variety of shapes and distances in the outdoor arena (indoor if wet). Great fun for both rider and horse.
THURSDAY 8 APRIL 2021
We all love a grid! To be run in the outdoor arena, Tamsin will build a run of progressive, simple show jumps to encourage rhythm and shape for your horse and position and style for you as you work through the grid. Heights to suit each rider, just let us know when you book
THURSDAY 15 APRIL 2021
RIDDEN LUNGE SESSION or LUNGEING TECHNIQUES
Shades of all those riding school lessons in our pasts, ridden lungeing is still relevant today. It can help to improve your seat and with targeted exercises, work on your balance, strength and feel. You and your horse will warm up off the lunge and then, when ready, Tamsin will work with you both on the lunge. Be warned, it may be no stirrups!
NB : We ask that your horse is a reliable lunger for a ridden session.
Alternatively, Tamsin can work with you and horse on your lungeing technique. She will advise on equipment, safety and how to get the best from your session for both exercise and training to feed onto ridden work. Held in her indoor arena so no weather worries!
Please bring any equipment you normally use (lunge line, roller, boots, gloves etc) plus bridle and saddle. Hats must be worn together with suitable footwear. Tamsin will also have some additional equipment to try should it be appropriate for your horse.
THURSDAY 22 APRIL 2021
