Trail Riding Clinic – David Mellor
This is a great clinic for everyone who is looking to regain confidence in themselves and their horse and learn how to trail ride with confidence.
Do you have days where you are plagued by self-doubt and dreading to get back into the saddle because your horse is dictating the relationship? Do you wonder where your confidence has disappeared to, now that you are taking up riding again after having taken a break from riding because of family or career reasons or after a bad fall or accident. Have you bought a horse and been dreaming about riding into the sunset and are now completely overwhelmed by it all? Does your horse start to throw tantrums and do you get yourself into difficult situations as soon as you try to get beyond the paddock or farm gate?
Do you want to get back into trail riding and feel energized, relaxed after riding your horse and really enjoy the moments you spend with your equine companion? If that sounds only remotely like you, then sign up for this one day workshop. It will open up new avenues to get your confidence back, enjoy your horse and cherish the moments you spend together.

The first part of the workshop will be structured around aspects like groundwork, safety and controlling your horse in the walk, trot and canter will be covered.
This will be followed by a leisurely picnic lunch (included in the price) with plenty of time for discussions.
The afternoon starts out with practical tips to enjoy getting back in the saddle and will ultimately help you to get back on the trail and staying safe.
The clinic will conclude with a short trail ride, guided by Dave, who will support you with his expertise and advice throughout the ride. The ride will take place on a private, fully fenced 110 acre property with riding trails.
There will be a maximum of five participants in this clinic to ensure that each participant can fully benefit from the Dave’s teaching and coaching.
