Bringing on various different horses and riders, I visit different venues for horse & rider to gain valuable experience and also in preparation for competing etc. 

This can offer you a great way of having the constancy of myself and people you know around you, whilst exploring new venues and experience’s, maybe for the first time, or revisiting. 
Other Coaches, we may look at including a visit to another coach at one of these venues as part of your development journey and plan, with he possibility of sharing a session with your training buddy and traveling in convoy, parking together and enjoying the experience

Don’t forget, with me coaching, you can do as little as you want, if you just want to come and hold your horse and have a coffee, that’s fine, no one will judge you, its your journey, enjoy it x

With my regular riders / handlers, we have had dismounted session to discuss and plan, trained together,  travelled in convoy, parked together and supported each other, and makes for a lovely enjoyable day out with great company.  Even if you are no longer a horse owner or rider, help and company is always appreciated.

Some competition thoughts are below. some are teams, some are individuals, if enough numbers, we can put teams forward if that’s what you want. 

BD Quest, My & Team Quest 
Individual and teams
Great chance to get judged by  a BD judge, Regular competitions in our area that can be a great way to monitor your progress and to use as training tool as well as aiming to progress. 
Petrina did this in 2021, really enjoyed her outings & gained valuable experience. Will be doing this again 2022. Probably as a individual, my Quest. 
BD quest info

Dressage,  Showjumping & Working Hunter shows, held locally, ideal to get out competing regularly or occasionally,  getting back competing, or introducing grass roots horse and riders to competitions or using them as training outings. 

Riding Club, Area’s. Teams and individual in Dressage, Show Jumping and ODE, again these are generally open to individuals and teams and make for a great day out. We will probably aim for the 3 disciplines 
Please remember, you will need to be a member of a Riding club, being with Vale of Aeron Riding club, we will be running training with these competitions in mind.
