Nicki Stuart is an experienced an instructor who will help you to bring out the best in your horse and develop your skills and confidence. Your first work may be on the lunge line to help improve your position if necessary. Then Nicki will work with you to tailor a training program based on your goals and skill level. Incorporated in all lessons are the principles of equitation science. This humane, sustainable approach recognises horse psychology and works with the horse's natural behaviour. It successfully addresses behaviours such as separation anxiety, shying, bucking, and transportation difficulties. Here is an introduction to equitation science for you to download.
The minimum age for students is 12 and we do not cater for beginners.
If you are unable to travel with your horse, please enquire about home visits. Nicki can also help you to start your young horse or take it in for intensive education.

Would you like your horse to have solid foundations for future success? How about the opportunity to work hands on with your horse through its foundation training? If you're about to start your young horse's education you of course want the best possible outcome, and a foundation that will ensure future success - whatever your riding interests.
When learning theory is applied to horse training the consistent results are horses that are calm and obedient. There is no confusion, and the training is error free. This logical, progressive system gives all horse owners a reliable, efficient training toolbox and will enhance your relationship with your horse.
While your horse is here for training you can attend as often as you like. The pace and length of the training placements will be sympathetic to the individual horse and your personal situation.
