The Horse Rider’s Mechanic ONE DAY clinic

This page has information about how the HRM ONE DAY clinic operates. You need to read this information if you are interested in attending a one day clinic or if you have booked to attend a one day clinic.

Click below for information about theTwo day clinic

The H R M one day clinic structure

The clinic is for up to sixteen riders at a time. It is always taught by myself, Jane Myers - The Horse Rider’s Mechanic.

Session one

A short (about fifteen to thirty minutes) un-mounted session. You may need to bring a chair (check with the organiser). Please have your horse ready to ride ASAP after this session if you are assigned to the first group to ride. This session covers some of the theory for the day but you will also be given an opportunity to arrange your finish time if you need to leave earlier in the afternoon. Before this session or by the end of it you will be assigned to one of two groups for session two.

Session two

The beginning of the ridden part of the clinic. The first group rides while the second group observes. Then the second group rides while the first group observes. During this session you will go through the position and balance exercises as a group (in walk and trot only). Each group may be further split for the trotting parts of the session. A mounting block will usually be provided in the arena. This session lasts approximately 1 to 1.5 hours for each group.

Lunch break - approximately 30 mins

Session three

You will be assigned to the next session or you will be given the choice depending on your ability level. There will be various sessions and you will be able to do one of them (they will not necessarily take part in the following order):

At any time you can pull over to the side if you or your horse gets tired before a break is called (although these are frequent). You must keep your distance between your horse and any horses that are nearby.

The start time (session one) for the clinic varies but it is usually scheduled for no later than 9.30am. Whatever the scheduled start time is it is important that you are ready to begin at that time. The finish time varies depending on when you are scheduled to have your session three and whether you want to watch the other riders ride.
