Training RoR Midlands - Online with Lou Robson 'Chewing the (Non) Fat' All Things Thoroughbred' Handling, Riding and Competiting with Confidence. With special Guest Sian Phipps.

9th July, 2024

***A new way to get training support***

Do you love a chance to chew the fat about our lovely former racehorses with like minded people?

Do you want to sit down with your favourite tipple and talk all things horse, meet new people and get expert help from one of the friendliest and supportive coaches around?

You don't need a horsebox, you won't get caught out by the weather and it can be done from the comfort of your own home (or wherever you fancy!).

Buying a £5 ticket (no Horse Monkey fee for this one either) will get you access to our zoom account which was generously supported by Steel Traders for Lou Robson's online chat.

Everyone will join at the same time and Lou will lead discussion based on any range of topics the group want. Whether it's feed, care, quirks or quandries of our beloved former racehorses, Lou will have reassurance that you aren't alone. She will listen to your concerns or queries and offer advice based on her extensive knowledge with our former racehorses.

The session will give you an opportunity to talk through what you are thinking, wherever you are at on your riding journey. From in hand work starting a horse off the track to being in the arena at an affiliated competition or championship Lou will have been there and done it before and will offer solutions and explanations. The session will be recorded so you will get lifetime access to this after the event - perfect if life gets in the way on the night or it's a date you can't make. There is also a private Facebook Group where you can pose questions in advance of the session.

Feedback from the last session includes 'informative', 'answered so many questions' and 'would love to do another one'.

All you need is a good internet or phone signal (and sufficient data) - we will send you all the joining details you need on the day of the event by email.
