> "WINTER WARMER" INTRODUCTORY PRACTICAL HORSEMANSHIP GROUNDWORK LESSON DAYS
Saturday 14th July (if enough interest) & 28th July.

Introductory Practical Horsemanship Groundwork Lesson Days with Diana Jamieson at Chester Farm.

- Are you frustrated with short winter daylight hours, not being able to do anything productive with your horse or perhaps your horse has been out of work and you aren't sure how to get him safely started under saddle again?
- Is your horse stiff or resistant to ride on one side or the other, won't go forward, too flightly and too dull, lacks concentration or doesn't seem to understand/react to your rein and leg aids properly?
- Have you got a young horse (or older with a few tricks up their sleeve!) that you've been having some trouble handling in certain situations?
- Are your kids ponies pushy and walking all over them or being problematic under saddle, but you don't know where to start to help out?
- Would you like to learn some simple new skills to help you feel safer, more in control, more aware of what your horse is telling you and develop a better communication, understanding and bond with your horse for improved everyday handling, riding and general performance?

These particular " Winter Warmer Introductory Practical Horsemanship Groundwork" lesson days are suitable for all ages and levels horse and rider, ideal for anyone who has never done any specific horsemanship groundwork before or having trouble and wants to know more.

Groundwork is not just something for beginners or low-level riders to do, it offers valuable exercises, understanding and tools for every horse owner and rider whether you are just starting out through to advanced level experienced performers, and the exercises we do in these lessons seek the same engagement, softness, rhythm etc that we want from our horse when we ride so offer an obvious benefit and progression. (Note: no riding will be done during these particular lessons however).

COST: $75+GST for a 2 hour group lesson. Includes Ground Fee & Day Yard.

To book your place email Diana: info@chesterfarm.co.nz
Bookings taken anytime in advance to confirm your place as numbers are limited. Payment to be made onine prior or on the day upon arrival.

All that is required is a good fitting rope halter for your horse/pony, a long training lead rope of approx 10 - 12ft is ideal (I recommend the Roma training lead or similar), and your positive attitude to enjoying a fun day out learning new things with your horse!

(We will also plan to do more of these days in the Spring, ideal timing for bringing your horses back into work... watch this space!)
