Format of the Session:
- First half hour: course walk and explanation of and tips about obstacles followed by
- An hour with your horse practicing under Amanda’s guidance and tuition and then
- An informal horse agility competition – you will be able to continue working on some obstacles in another area or you can watch the others compete
The morning session is 10.00 to 12.30 and the afternoon 1.30 to 4.00. £40 for the two and a half hour session.
You must have third party insurance cover for your horse (such as is provided by BHS Gold membership). Proof of insurance will be required.
Your horse must have an up to date vaccination record with the latest jab within 12 months of the date of the event but at least 6 days before it. No horse under 2 years may participate and all children (under 18) must be accompanied by an adult.
These sessions are intended for those with some horse agility training and complete beginners with good ground handling skills are most welcome. It is however a basic requirement that you can lead your horse at walk on a loose rope and halt on request. Obstacles can be undertaken in walk or trot according to experience, confidence and mobility!
Your horse/pony will have to stand in your trailer or lorry for the first half hour of the session.
You must wear a riding hat, gloves and suitable footwear when handling your horse (adults accompanying children must also wear these). Please also bring a long lead rope (ideally a 12 foot rope – some will be available to hire on the day - proceeds to the East Anglian Air Ambulance)
