I run clinics in all aspects of the sport of TREC, for all equines and their humans – everyone is welcome! Age, experience and confidence are never a barrier to joining in, all obstacle sessions are open to ridden equines age 4+ and non-ridden equines of any age.
Obstacle sessions are great cross-training and life experience, and very useful for improving your partnership and confidence.
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.
27-28 June Wakefield camp if group lessons and overnight trips are allowed.
5 Jul – Outdoor XC at Caistor EC, Lincolnshire if group lessons can go ahead
These sessions build confidence, trust and partnership as you navigate a range of mobile obstacles that you have to go over, under, around and through in amongst the terrain obstacles such as water crossing out on the cross country course.
Groups of 4 for 90 minutes each, maximum 20 places available.
Book via Kate at Caistor email@example.com, call the centre on 01472 859341 or message the Caistor Equestrian Centre Page on FB. Payment will be required in advance to confirm your place.

COVID-19 Risk Assessment measures in place for Homestead:
- Outdoor venue – the training field is 11 acres. An area will be allocated for warm up/cool down & a separate area for training. You may warm up for 15 minutes before your lesson and cool down for 10 minutes afterwards.
- Private lessons only – no sharing even with people from the same household (Evie as coach can only meet with one other person at once). A video briefing & explanation about TREC will be provided for you to watch in advance of your lesson, so that we can crack straight on with training and maximise the lesson slot.
- Evie will not be able to assist with mounting or tack adjustments.
- You may travel to the venue with another member of your household (eg if you need them to drive for you), but they are not allowed to stand and spectate – vehicles can be parked at a gap in the hedge facing the training area so they can spectate from the cab.
- The venue toilets and portaloos are out of bounds due to difficulties with maintaining sufficient standards of cleanliness between users.
- A trained first aider will be on site & on call all day, separate from Evie who is vulnerable due to asthma. In the event of first aid being required, you will be provided with a mask to wear if clinically possible (as will your first aider) to protect each other.
- All participants will be contacted the day before to confirm that they & all members of their household are free from any covid symptoms. You must not attend if you or any household member have symptoms as per the self-isolation advice here
- Please do your own honest risk assessment of your horse & their recent workload/temperament – this is an outdoor venue on grass, without other horses to rely on for calming influence so will not be suitable for everyone. If you are nervous/novice and do not want to attend on grass but would be happy to attend in the outdoor arena, let me know and if there’s sufficient interest I will do some arena sessions too.
5 July if group lessons are possible – CHAPS 90 minute training sessions with a few mobile obstacles and all the fabulous terrain & agility obstacles on the playground. After your session you’ll then be able to stay on the playground for a further 30 minutes playtime! Why not make a day of it, bring lunch and go for a hack too?
