 We hold occasional Lecture/Demonstrations here or can come to a venue.  Demonstrations usually consist of showing how we work our horses on the lunge, use of equipment and different techniques of in-hand work. (See Training)  We then progress to how we make the transition from ground to ridden and take it up through the levels.  The demonstrations show how this work can be adapted for different types of horse. Dates of any forthcoming events will be posted here and on the Latest News page.

If you are interested in a Demo at your venue for Riding Club/Dressage Group please e-mail or phone to discuss.
