Training RoR Midlands - Sophie Lai XC Clinic

24th June, 2023

RoR are no strangers to Somerford Park Farm and it's excellent facilities. There are 80 acres of parkland and over 100 solid and inviting fences with training in mind. Fences range from 75cm to 1.20 meters with combinations, drops, arrowheads, ditches, banks, chase fences and an extensive wtaer complex.

Coaching at this great centre is Sophie Lai, a BHS freelance coach who is well accustomed to working with former rachorses. At this clinic she is offering two sessions for RoR members, each will last an hour and be in groups of three, during which riders will work with their horses over the range of cross country fences at Somerford. At the time of booking please email with details of what you want to achieve from the day and the level that you and your horse are currently working at. These will be shares with Sophie to ensure that those booked on are sorted into two groups working at similar levels to ensure you get the most out of the session.

Sophie Lai Bio

I am a freelance coach, trainer and rider based in Cheshire. I run my own riding club (Cheshire Riding Club) which has just been established this year. I have competed at the national show jumping circuit in Ireland for most of my career. I went on to become a retraining rider/trainer for The Hong Kong Jockey Club for a few years. I’ve trained horses straight from the race track to become ridden horses that have excelled in Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing.

I am very passionate in using my skills, knowledge and experience in educating horses and giving them a different career. I truly believe that patience, planning and support is key to retraining racehorses.

I have gained a vast amount of experience and skills as a retraining rider and would love to share and spread my expertise to others and support others in achieving their goals.
