Over three days riders will be coached through a series of horsemanship and schooling exercises on the ground and in the saddle, on the flat, and over jumps, with a view to the continual improvement of the confidence and ability of the horse/rider partnership, mentally, emotionally and physically.
The clinic will take in place in the outdoor arena and the all-weather cross country course.
Each day will start with a theory session in the classroom, on the main yard, opposite the indoor arena
Riders of mixed, competent levels are welcome and will be grouped according to ability. For the more advanced jumpers, there will be lots of opportunity to challenge yourselves over bigger fences and combinations. For those not yet ready to put your hearts in your mouths (!) Tik is equally happy to coach entire sessions over cross poles!
Riders: Please use the Mellon Place entrance on arrival and park in the field at the top of the lane. You will be given full directions in your logistics email two weeks before the event.
Spectators: Please use the Equestrian Entrance and park your cars in the smaller area on the right as you drive in, to make way for visiting horseboxes using the XC course.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available all day from 09.00, but please bring your own lunch, refreshments and anything else you might need.
We love dogs, but please leave yours at home!
You are welcome to stay on-site in your vehicles, but please note there is no hook up and no tents are allowed.
Contact: If you need to contact us on the day, please call 07870 808 589

I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising such a fantastic clinic last weekend. As a horsemanship novice and being from a traditional pony club and eventing background, I didn’t really know what to expect. I was overwhelmed by how welcoming and supportive everyone was. I genuinely felt like part of the family!
As for Tik, what can I say. He has an incredible presence and is a truly inspirational horseman. His natural way with both horses and people is something very rare. I have taken so much away from the classroom, groundwork and ridden sessions, and feel like I have a renewed energy to put his teachings into practice. The changes my horse and I made in one weekend surpassed all my expectations.
What has also been a welcome bonus, are the connections I’ve made. I’m teaming up with Hanna and George this weekend to go cross country schooling, and have been liaising with Debbie to arrange some Science of Motion training with her. Can’t wait to get started; onwards and upwards!

Still reflecting on one of the most positive and insightful learning experiences I have had in the past five years! What an amazing few days and such a great group of like minded and supportive people. I feel very lucky to have met and learnt from you all. Not to mention of course, Tik – what an inspirational horseman and communicator! Thank you Larisa and Nicole for making it possible!

Thank you all for a wonderful weekend. It was so great to spend time with like minded people and see the fantastic changes in each horse and rider.
Looking forward to next year!
Many thanks to Organised Equestrian for this great clinic!
