Making the most of the British Weather!

There is a saying “When life gives you lemons – make lemonade” With the testing weather this week playing havoc with our lessons, by causing the school to flood, we decided  to adapt our own version of this saying……….

”When the British summer gives you floods – go ride in them!” 🐎🍋🐴

Thanks to all the clients who stuck with us and still rode this weekend! #ridewhatevertheweather

Kate’s Anatomy & Physiology Talk

A huge thank you to everyone who came and helped make Kate’s talk a great success. The talk was interesting, informative and fun. Delivered professionally yet kept informal there was a mixture of talk, discussion, demo and hands on. The weather was perfect. Abbie and Rocky were great examples of the things Kate was showing us, but little Tigger was the star of the show with his endless patience as the demo horse! 🐴😁

After the talk, discussion and demo – Kate was more than a happy to show us how she checks the spine and what she’s feeling for. In Tigger she found his poll slight rotated right, a few misalignments through the back and pelvis slightly rotated to the right.

After Kate had show us how she uses McTimoney treatment to make the adjustments Tigger needed she then showed us some stretches that are really beneficial for the horse.

If you’d like to know about who Kate is and what she does there’s a link to her website in our earlier blog post about this talk or find her on Facebook – search ‘Human, Horse and Hound’

Age is just a number!

Showing that age is just a number! It was an absolute pleasure to give this grandad a lesson which was a gift from his grandson and his partner 😍 At a young 82yrs old he was able to show the kids how it was done! 😆#inclusion #lovehorses #ageisjustanumber #yournevertoooldtohavefun #familyfun #familytime #lovehorseriding🐎❤️
