Mechanical Horse

Hello everyone,

We have arranged a fabulous opportunity for Area 13 members. We have training over two days; Saturday 7th and Sunday 15th August. On the 7th you will have an hour shared lesson on a Mechanical Horse with Amelia Wilbourn (http://www.ameliawilbourn.co.uk/ - TN7 4LA) then the following Sunday a further shared lesson on you own horse to transfer and hone the skills you have improved on the mechanical horse. This will take place at Alder Lake EC (https://www.alderlakefarm.co.uk/). This training has been heavily subsidised by Area 13 and is a bargain for the all in price of £48.00 per person for both sessions.

Mechanical horse lessons are an ideal way to focus on your posture, position and balance. It allows you to focus on yourself and understand your own individual asymmetries and how they may be affecting you and your horse.  The trot simulator has 3 speeds and enables the rider to develop both sitting and rising trot.  The canter/gallop simulator has 5 speeds and allows the rider to develop their seat in canter and gallop.  Both of the horses allow the rider to develop their balance and position for flatwork, jumping and fast work.
You are also able to bring your own saddle, or use one of mine.

Lessons on your own horse are then an ideal way to put your new skills into practice and understand how your position can make positive changes to your horse's way of going, and also to understand how your horse may be affecting your position.  We can develop exercises to help improve overall balance, straightness and suppleness.

There are only 12 spaces available on this training. These spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis and to secure your booking payment in full will need to be received.  Should you have to cancel for any reason a refund will only be given if we can fill you space.

To make you booking, payment and any questions or further information please contact Maxine Lowrie; maxinelowrie@me.com. Tel 07969 483221.

BRC British Show Jumping League

British Riding Clubs (BRC) have set up a league to reward their Members who are also competing with British Showjumping.

BRC will reward and acknowledge the success of their senior members who are competing on horses with British Showjumping by running two annual BRC Leagues, hosted on the British Showjumping website. The leagues are for British Showjumping members that are also members of a British Riding Club and sit within either the British Showjumping Bronze or Silver leagues.

The British Riding Club Bronze & Silver Leagues will run from the 1 January each year until the 31 December and are for horse and rider combinations. BRC will award the top ten competitors from each league with rosettes and prizes in kind.




Results and Rules can be found here:
