An evening with Ben Atkinson Tour

Unicorn Trust - 17th December

10th December 2022
We are thrilled to bring you an action packed educational evening with Ben Atkinson of Atkinson Action Horses, and his equine team! What does it take to create an 'Action Horse' for TV, film and performance, and how to get started, from training a young horse to progressing an experienced horse.

'Learn their language and only be limited by your patience and capacity to communicate'

Ben will be bringing his team of top horses and with their help he will guide us through his in depth training techniques and methods, which he uses to create confident, happy, and bomb proof horses! Once your horse is bomb proof, you will be prepared to excel in Liberty, Classical dressage, the madness of the film and TV world, or purely enjoy your horse. From happy hacking to Hickstead, Ben's methods are sure to help you reach your goals.
