Are you interested in learning how Russell starts young horses under saddle?

 

These unique Experience Weeks allow you to have a fun and educational week away with your horse at Brumby Farm. If you have completed a clinic with us before then come along and enjoy progressing your horsemanship in the afternoon clinics after watching Russell start young horses each morning. This is not a horse starting clinic so your own horse already needs to be started under saddle.


Cost: $800 (inlcudes camping, horse board and lunches).

17th - 21st January - Adults Returning to Riding Camp

Aimed at adults who are returning to riding after time away. Russell and Ruth have developed a five-day camp that will take you through the basics of staying safe on the ground and in the saddle using natural horsemanship techniques to show you how to develop a connection and relationship with your horse.

3 hrs of lessons each morning then demonstrations and lectures in the afternoons will give you the knowledge and skills to feel safe and have fun again as well as have a greater understanding of horses and their care ( eg. choosing the right equipment, trailer-loading & travelling, everyday horsemanship habits).

Join us at Brumby Farm, our purpose build Horsemanship Centre

$950 for the week (includes camping, horse board and lunches).
