Dressage Test Riding Clinic

Open to all levels and abilities, this is a fantastic opportunity to get your horse ready for competition in a controlled environment following the lockdown. Take away the stress of a real competition and practice in a friendly and relaxed environment.

The 1:1 test practice is held in our indoor arena with white boards and fully dressed with our brand new flower arrangements. At Reaseheath there is also the advantage of having full mirrors on the short AND long sides.

You have the opportunity to warm your horse up in the 30 x 60 outdoor arena (as you would on a competition day) 30 minutes before your test. On your time you will then be called into the indoor arena to preform a test of your choosing (20×40 or 20×60). As on a competition day, you will wait for the bell to ring and our highly qualified judge/instructor will complete a test sheet. Following your test, you will stay in the indoor arena and receive personal one to one training on how to improve your marks. The full time you spend in the indoor arena is 30 minutes – after your session you can again make use of our outdoor arena and cool your horse down before collecting your test sheet.

  • British Dressage test available: Intro – Advanced Medium
  • British Eventing test available: 91, 92, 95, 102, 106 & 108
  • Music tests also available

20 x 40 tests will be held in the morning and 20 x 60 tests in the afternoon.

Don’t feel ready for a test? No problem! You can book on for 30 minute 1:1 training only.

Mechanical Horse Sessions

Lessons are £25 for 30 minutes with our resident BHSAI instructor, Shannon Edwards.

Our mechanical horse, Flicker, is designed to help riders, of all ages and abilities, improve their riding. Using a mechanical horse is a fantastic way to correct your straightness and balance, without the interference of real horse. Thanks to the mechanical horse’s capabilities, it is suitable for any level rider. From practicing your ‘up, downs’ to practicing your flying changes!

Flicker is a life size horse and you can even bring your own saddle to practice on! Flicker is located in a fully mirrored room so you can see what the instructor is seeing and gain a better understanding.

Our instructor will modify every session to suit your needs and is extremely flexible in their teaching style.

We have a remote to control Flicker and can therefore adhere to social distancing regulations throughout your session.

Riders will be asked to bring their own riding hat.

Weight limit of 13 stone applies.
