About The Event

There are 4 main reasons horses spook:-

1. Scared of 'things' 😱

2. Tense and on adrenaline 😬

3. Distracted 🤪

4. Pain 🤕

Each of these has a different solution. Use the right strategy and your horse will calm down quickly.

Come along with your horse to learn ground and ridden skills to help you build your horses confidence in new things and new environments safely. I will share with you why horses are spooky, what you can do about it and patterns that will help with a tense or distracted horse.

The format will be theory sessions, small group and private sessions with you and your horse.The venue benefits from a covered arena (no need to get wet!!!), large stables, big parking area with plenty of turning space, tea/coffee facilities.
