Booking and Information

Join Lesley Perry, BHS Stage 4 Coach and UKCC Level 3 Coach with British Dressage for this informative day aimed at developing knowledge of correct flatwork training.
Correct flatwork is a crucial foundation for all disciplines; this event will appeal to not only dressage riders but also showjumpers, eventers or just those who have an interest in producing horses correctly.
Lesley will start the day looking at the young horse to make sure the basic training doesn't become boring (preliminary level), the vital early work and education (Novice level), the foundation for the future (Elementary level), the fun starts (Medium level), when, how and where the flying begin (Medium and beyond).
Enjoy watching riders such as Lesley's daughter, Anne-Marie who riders and competes at Grand Prix, as well as other advanced riders, riding young horses through to advanced.
This is open to all, both riders and coaches, with varied content throughout the day covering training for different levels of dressage.
