 Schooling for young/green horses

Our schooling sessions will help your horse become more aware of how their own body works and teach them about their balance. We look at how your horse moves and their behaviour so that we can recommend improvements through ground work sessions, and suggest adjustments to your saddle and the bit. Schooling sessions are often followed by strengthening work through hacking up and down the local hills.

We can also help with flat work, jumping, breaking horses in and hacking horses out. Naughty ponies are welcome to be brought to be schooled as well.
