Horse Agility is a fantastic, fun sport which heavily focuses on good horsemanship and the relationship between human and equine. In Horse Agility you navigate a series of obstacles and manoeuvres working as a partnership with your equine. On this course you will learn all about the different obstacles, how to complete them correctly and how to teach and guide the horse. You will learn how to communicate with the horse you are working with, develop good leading and groundwork skills and work up to completing a full course.

All levels of experience welcome and catered for; whether this is something completely new to try or whether you compete in Horse Agility already and are looking to improve your scores – and everyone in between! The sessions will be fun and relaxed for both horse and human with an approachable, knowledgeable trainer. Come along for an enjoyable time of Horse Agility in a stunning location with rescue horses – what’s not to like!
