FAQ

  • Do I need any special equipment?

    No, you can do the exercises in a headcollar and lead rope. Whilst I recommend a cavesson (more information within the course) it is not essential

  • I don't have an arena, can I still do the exercises?

    Yes! You do not need an arena, an area of level ground will be ideal. However please make sure it is enclosed for you and your horse's safety.

  • Is there a time limit on the course?

    No, you can work through the programme at your own pace, in your own timeframe.

  • Can you help me on a one-2-one basis?

    Yes, please do contact me to discuss individualised packages.
