Adult Clinic - Groundwork and Trail Riding

This camp's theme is groundwork and trail riding. Groundwork is used to train respect for and confidence in the handler and is an excellent tool for desensitisation and for observing horse behaviour and learning styles. Trail riding is an enjoyable and relaxing way to see nature and the countryside from the back of a horse. You'll learn the different types of saddlery we use for trail riding, how to maintain safe distances, how to read horses' body language for safety, etiquette on the trail, control of the horse in the open, how to look ahead for things that might scare your horse and how to cope with the unexpected. We'll ride out to different places every day. Beginners and experienced riders will all benefit from and enjoy this program. Riders will be grouped and the content tailored to suit the level of experience and confidence of each group.
