About the event

Bring your own horse or use one of ours for this one day intensive course. Most of you out there will have struggled with this at some point in your riding life, and wherever you are at with it right now, it can always be improved further. Denise O'Reilly (UKCC 2, BHS APC, Advanced dressage rider and international biomechanics coach) is taking the course, so will be giving you top tips on not just what to do down the reins, but how the rest of your body can enhance contact easily. There will be new answers (after all, we have all heard the 'routine' ones, and if we are still struggling, we need new ideas!), new techniques to try, and lots of liberation from what we think of as 'the rules'. The course begins with a ridden demo of how to begin, followed by some dismounted exercises to show which muscles to engage and how. Then a private 40 minute lesson where you can put it all into practice. Suitable for all levels, whether you are starting out on your dressage journey, or already competing at an established level. Please bring a packed lunch and hay for your horse. A day stable is included. £90 own horse £110 on one of ours Message to book, only 6 places available!
