Ground skills & ridden exercises in the arena incorporating group learning and "forget your horse just watch and learn" sessions as Mark teaches 1:1.
Mark is highly flexible in his clinic structures and can cater for individual needs eg those that want to only do ground skills.
The 4 days allow time for Mark to really hone in on you and your horse.
People gain the most from the 1:1 intensive lessons.
Daily structure of clinic may change to accomodate horse and rider needs.
One day may be 1:1 x45min long lessons, the next might be a mix of lessons and a group ride out.
There are 2 beautiful arenas to choose between.
Whilst not having your lesson we strongly encourage you to watch the lessons in progress and learn from them.
Mark offers truly dedicated teaching over the 4 days and will help you as much as he can.
