About Buckskin Equestrian
The aim of my camps is to teach practical and safe techniques to give confidence, and skills in all aspects of handling and riding, in which ever discipline you may choose.
Once confidence is achieved, and both rider and pony are happy and safe, we work towards refining what we have and moving forward to achieve our goals, whether it be simply learning some groundwork skills, galloping down a beach, perfecting your jumping position or learning to ask for collection. We will put in place some building blocks and steps to help achieve this.
I believe riding is a journey of learning, achieving, and having a solid foundation, plus an understanding between horse and rider to achieve your dreams and overcome any hurdles you may face.
Most of all learning while having lots of fun and just enjoying the privilege of working with our ponies.
What to Expect on Camps
Having a restricted number of riders is to make sure ALL riders can get the most out of their Camp. I am able to structure the camps to cater each and every rider.
I strongly encourage them to ask me to clarify, or re explain anything they may not have understood. I will spend one on one time with each rider to ensure they are following and happy.
Camps are structured around having fun while you are learning! Expect to relax, have some fun, enjoy your ponies and gain confidence. Riders will be expected to participate in all aspects of the camp as long as they are safe and confident to do so. I will push riders to give new things ago if I believe they are safe and it will help both them and their ponies to gain confidence and push forward.
The level of this camp will be dependant in Registration at this stage.
Riders will need to be confident in walk, trot, canter and be capable of jumping a minimum of approx 65cm – jumping height will be altered to level of riders.
Level of cross country will be approx pre training level.
A basic understanding of flat work and schooling exercises with horse accepting the bit.
