TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR PRE-SHOW TRAINING PACKAGE

Have you ever found yourself at a competition not knowing how to warm up properly, or how to ride the course. Or maybe you’re with a parent who is unsure what to do, and you just wish there was someone around to help.

I can help with the following problems;

  1. Warming up, how long it takes and making sure you don’t overdo it. Warming up is very important if you want to jump well.
  2. A full day at the show that focuses on walking, riding and learning about the course and the problems that you may encounter.
  3. For competition riders they can stay for a week or more before the show and have a series of lessons so they can be at their best.
  4. There are benefits from travelling to competitions with other riders and trainers as you will be able to learn from their experiences.
