Calendar

I run clinics in all aspects of the sport of TREC, for all horses and riders – everyone is welcome! Age, experience and confidence are never a barrier to joining in. Obstacle sessions are great cross-training and life experience for any horse, and very useful for improving the partnership and confidence of horse and rider.

Read more about the different types of clinic here.

If you want to know more about competing in TREC, you can read some guides that I wrote for my local club here.

*£10 discount available for ROR NE members on any event in the NE area – just put your membership number and horse’s racing name at the end of the booking form.
