These clinics have been extremely popular and ODRC are delighted to be offering another opportunity for our members and other members of BRC (proof of membership required) to take part. Once again, we will be using the Olympic sized arena at Higher Counthill Farm with an all-weather surface made from silica sand topped with PVC pellets. This clinic is open to ODRC members and other BRC members (subject to proof of membership) and will cater for all abilities of horse and rider from beginners, nervous horse and/or riders, to the more intermediate and advanced levels. From poles on the floor to a full course of jumps, you choose how much you want to do.
Please come and have a go in a friendly, relaxed environment and boost your confidence with your horse! The sessions will be split/grouped on ability declared by you (see below*). Lessons will be ideally in groups of 4 horse/rider combinations for 1 hour, but depending on numbers and demand, we may do groups of 3 for 45 mins or pairs for 30mins. Lessons will start from 10:00am onwards.
Jumping Lesson Options
