Clinics around New Zealand

More dates and locations will be added soon for Auckland, Tauranga and Rotorua.

The Foundation Series

We feel that to really make a change to both yours and your horse's skill levels it is best to commit to a programme of learning rather than a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  That is why we have our Foundation Series. Over these three clinics you will build on the skills that you developed previously to help your horse become a dependable partner that is both calm and responsive.

You can book each individually, or sign up for all at the same time and have one year's free membership to our on-line Coaching Club valued at $360 to really support you on your journey.

Special offer


Introduction to Horsemanship

This is where it all starts - on the ground.

In our Stage 1 clinic you learn about horse psychology, how horses learn, how to build confidence and how to create responsiveness in order to stay safe and have fun on the ground. This clinic is the pre-requisite to most of our other clinics, both ridden and liberty.


Cost: $440


Safety & Control in the Saddle

The second clinic in the three foundation series clinics. This one is all about transferring your ground skills into the saddle with an emphasis on safety. Learn how to prepare your horse for riding and develop the "three essentials" in the saddle of lateral flexion, hind quarter yields and "go". Students must have completed a Stage 1 ground skills clinic with us.

Cost: $440

Our annual Horsemanship Trail Camp has become a bit of an institution and this will our eighth camp. It is only open to people that have studied with us and whilst it is about getting out on the trail, there is a real focus on horsemanship along the way.  You must already be confident riding your horse on trail rides. This is not for unconfident riders or green horses.

We stay at the Shearer's Quarters at Te Akatea station which has lovely shared accomodation and all lunches and dinners are provided. Numbers are strictly limited to eight and the cost is $740 (includes accommodation, meals and horse board)
