First Sample Day:

45 minute lesson in pairs with Grand Prix Dressage Rider and Trainer Mat Burnett. You will have the chance to work on areas of training where you need help and your horse’s general way of going.

1 hour lesson in a group of up to four with BE Trainer Beatrice Stocks- Seals on the Aintree Racecourse Gallops. A chance to work on fitness training, learn about the speeds required over a XC course and to build your confidence in speed work.

 Second Sample Day:

1 hour lesson in a group of up to three with our Show Jumping Coach (TBC). You will have the chance to work on challenging technical fences and combinations, techniques to improve your ability to get clear rounds and to help you and your horse’s confidence over the poles.

There are a few spaces on camp where it is possible to ‘Pick and Mix’ your lessons (every rider does the gallops – but you may select to have 2 Dressage or 2 Show Jumping lessons). Please contact Katie if you wish to take this option.
