Ground work and flat work clinic with Karen Whiston BHSI

A shared 1 hour session (2 riders) which will start with ground work and progress to ridden work.

Indoor arena Leyland Court so don't worry about the weather!

Are you wanting to take your horse out to a competition but not sure how he or she will behave?

Would you like more suppleness, calmness, softness, reactivity from your horse?

Does your horse get strong when ridden or have other contact issues?

Would you like to build your confidence?

When working in at a competition, are you stuck if lunging is not allowed?

Do you have trouble mounting?

Are you wanting to improve your horses lateral work?

This clinic may help you!

We will do a mixture of in hand schooling and ridden. There is no pressure to get on, you can work the horses in hand for the whole clinic if you choose.

We will be working on clarity, timing and control, using Inhand techniques that can then be taken into ridden work to improve the horses reactivity, balance, calmness and understanding of what the rider is asking.
