Schooling & Clinics
Many people have said "Jeni and Sylvie how do you get your horses so willing and brave to attempt knew obstacles, they barely fuss and definitly don't panic! i wish i could do that could you teach me"
So after a lot of thought we have decided to give it a go with helping passionate horsey people who want a better understanding with there horses, helping you with seeing dangers before they become accidents, Learning on how to stay safe around horses, better handling skills, working through problems wether on ground, ridden or floating, Confidence issues either the horse or owner etc... all whilst having an absolute blast!
So a little bit about who i am, I have been riding since the age of 4yo and have always had the horse bug, they are my life. I have done a variety of riding from Show Jumping, XC Derby's, Breaking in horses wild and quality bred warmbloods, racehorses. I then mainly started looking after TB's who resumed their racing careers as i feel they deserve a second chance as they are extraordinary horses with big hearts and i have learnt so much from working with them.
Since i have started working equitation a traditional Portuguese discipline, which is to demonstrate the work you would do on a farm with your horse, it sounds rather simple but the subtlety of the sport is what makes it so great, its about how good a communication and training you can develop between you and your horse, Once you try it you will be hooked, its magic! Im also a great believer in horsemanship as i don't believe force and abuse is the way to go, that was a thing of the past and things have evolved since and i find it very powerful in reaching your goals faster than expected, i believe in finding the source of a problem to remedy the actual issue and have done so with many horses with floating issues, spookiness, bolting, bucking, rearing, stopping at jumps, bad ground manners etc.... You will be amazed what a little horsemanship can do, if done right as its all about reading the signs your horse tells you, you miss the signs and you end up getting nowhere thats where years of experience matters so after 22y in horses myself + 3 generation in my family, i can confidently say i have a decent understanding ;) and still everyday i will learn something new, we never stop learning reason why i love horses so much.....
Im a very practical, straight forward person and love giving people confidence, Im very supportive and understand fears there is no shame in this and that's what im here to help you defeat these fears or troubles, i love a good laugh and always try to keep things simple, relaxed so if you think you or even a couple friends, adult clubs would like some assistance and helpful advice, coaching, i would be more than happy to help you with your beloved horses/ponies so get in touch.
