Buying a horse property might be one of the most expensive purchases you ever make -
Understanding why horses behave they way they do is the key to having a better relationship with your horse. For their sake and yours, don’t make assumptions about horse behaviour, get the facts.
I wish this book had been out when I bought my first horse property, it would have saved me a lot of anguish. I love the check list and I am using it as we look for our next property. Vicky, Texas, USA
This book has brought up so many points that I just would not have thought about if I had not read it. Thanks a million! Bob, Nottingham, UK

This page has information about how the HRM TWO DAY clinic operates. You need to read this information if you are interested in attending a two day clinic or if you have booked to attend a two day clinic.
Click below for information about theOne day clinic
The clinic is for up to sixteen riders at a time. It is always taught by myself, Jane Myers -
The clinic takes riders through the following subjects. Less experienced riders will have sessions in all these subjects but canter is optional (in this case you will be given more instruction in the other subjects). More experienced riders (that already have an understanding of basic school movements) will spend more time on canter:
This is sample of the running order of a HRM two day clinic:
Day 1: 8.30 am -
9.15 – 10.45 Group 1: mounted session 1 – Position and balance
11.00 – 12.30 Group 2: mounted session 1 – Position and balance
12.30 – 1.15 -
1.15 – 2.45 Group 1: mounted session 2 – Speed and direction
3.00 – 4.30 Group 2: mounted session 2 – Speed and direction
Day 2: 8.30 am -
9.15 – 10.45 Group 1: mounted session 3 – School movements
11.00 – 12.30 Group 2: mounted session 3 – Transitions
12.30 – 1.15 -
1.15 – 2.45 Group 1: mounted session 4 – Transitions (and possibly canter for some)
3.00 – 4.30 Group 2: mounted session 4 – Canter
Please note: the times for starting & finish may be adjusted according to weather
