Sport Horse Breeding in the North West


Training Clinic – The Red Cat Field, Wheelton – Sunday 26th July 2020

There was a missed opportunity for those that were not able to attend our clinic on Sunday.   

The experienced eventer Laura Walkden ran a cross country training clinic over the type of fences you are likely to encounter in the Working Hunter ring.  The participants were wide ranging from a Section A pony to young horses just starting out, to older experienced horses that just need an outing.  The confidence that built through the session for each participant was obvious to see and the themes that were repeated were “ride positively” and ” look where you want to go”.   

The smiles at the end of each section were great to see.  The event was well organised by Rosemarie Rainford and it was unfortunate due to social distancing rules that more spectators could not be present.
