Come with your horse for an intensive, fun 2-5 day course, to really progress your relationship, communication skills, and performance as a team. Whether you are new to Connected Riding or not, immersing yourself is the ideal way to really focus on the issues that matter to you and your horse and make some serious progress!
Learn how to really connect with your horse via a series of ground exercises, which will increase your awareness of your horse's body patterns and improve his suppleness and ability. Identify your strengths and weaknesses as a rider, working on your body posture and the way your position communicates with your horse. Become a team, reaching new heights and understanding together! (If you can’t bring your own horse, we may have something suitable here; contact Trisha to discuss.)
Days will comprise of a variety of classroom and round pen / arena sessions, and you can put what you are learning into practice with easy to challenging rides on our farm and bush block. Help us move some cattle!
These intensives are applicable and beneficial to all ages and disciplines; the lessons learned will help you progress, whether you are a happy hacker or a competitive rider. Programs are individually tailored.
Our 225 acre farm is situated in the hills above Cambridge, with gorgeous views looking down over Cambridge and Hamilton to Pirongia and Kakapuku, and over rolling farmland and bush to the Kaimai's. You are welcome to camp, find a B&B locally, or join us in the house.
