- Are you at a real confidence crisis?
- Feeling almost like giving up?
- Everything is now a struggle each day?
- Find your skills have deserted you?
- Finding it hard to do even the simple things with your horse?
- Constantly comparing yourself to others and feel depressed?
- Do you feel like you are ‘failing’ your horse?
- Feel you are not ‘good enough’ for your horse?
- Wishing you were young again when you rode carefree?
- Feeling depressed, tired, frustrated, even angry?
Enough is enough! You need a break, some time not just to sort out those crippling confidence issues, but just as importantly, to have some fun and to be around others who can help and support you!
We can end up going round and round in circles trying to find out answers to questions we don’t have. Trying to push ourselves into things we are too scared of. Trying to pretend to be brave when we are a quivering wreck inside and above all, just trying to hold it all together and get on with everything else in our lives.
We offer you two wonderful ways to help yourself:
You and your horse, getting quality training, having fun, establishing true connection and bond. These are lovely camps, full of activities, time to spend just grooming, having a massage, finding new friends and learning new skills. All our camps a specifically designed to help the very anxious riders, whether you are having trouble just getting on, or whether you are finding other aspects of riding too challenging at home.
- 4 x mounted lessons in small groups or 3 mounted sessions and 1 ‘Fun Day’ to include individual sessions.
- Mental strategies for instant confidence.
- Mindfulness for riders.
- 1 x Full hypnosis session (optional).
- Secrets of dealing with the ‘What If’s’.
- Overcoming known fears a fun way.
- Dealing with the unexpected.
- Planning and Mind Maps for motivation and progress.
Massage for Horses
The Use Of Oils For Horses
Mounted sessions in small groups to cater for the needs of the individuals. Emphasis will be on integrating the confidence strategies and learning new riding skills. Support and help throughout.
We have a range of mounted sessions from flatwork, poles, X-poles and optional jumping, all normally within a large indoor arena. Some camps do have X-country jumps available and normally there is an option to go for a hack in a small group.
* Private unmounted sessions available throughout the weekend. Individual work on your specific difficulties. (Confidence related or any other difficulties) £45
* Private mounted sessions available prior to camp. £45 (limited spaces)
Now it’s time to stop for a while and just enjoy a bit of pampering for a change. Real pampering! Time to make new friends and be amongst people who truly understand the difficulties you are going through, and just as importantly, time to make those strategic changes to overcoming those confidence issues.
We can help you find the answers, we can help you develop a plan, but you need to not only be physically fit, but mentally powerful to give you and your horse the best possible chance to succeed.
This is not a mounted camp, you come WITHOUT your horse.
Settle in to one of our comfortable en-suite rooms and once unpacked, perhaps go for a stroll around the hotel, down one of our tracks in the countryside or relax by the hotel pond for a while. We do have horses here, you are welcome to go and watch them whilst they are out grazing.
In the later afternoon, we all get together in the Mill Room, enjoy some refreshments and get to know one another. We will have our ‘Welcome’ chat later that day, followed by a wonderful guided meditation session before bed.
