This course is for those that have already had prior tuition and or experience and are looking to advance past the introduction horsemanship stages.
The course material covers a theory section on the innate behaviour and understanding of horses, similar to the introduction course. The ground skills or on-line segment prepares you for the use and advancement to longer lines and where appropriate gives an introduction to liberty.
The ridden section aims to advance riders onwards from the introduction course and help riders learn practical skills that they can now apply to everyday situations. This segment of the course aims to help riders learn how to improve your horse’s impulsion from the horse that won’t go to the horse that has too much go..
Depending on the level of course participants this course would have an element of ground skills in the morning and riding in the afternoon.
The advanced course would suit those that are wishing to advance and are serious about the development of their horsemanship skills and are capable of competently riding at all gaits. Those wishing to participate on this course should have had previous experience or tuition.
The on-line segment of the course includes the use of longer lines and the use of liberty to help improve your horse’s impulsion. The ridden exercises aim to improve the riding of circles and the use of a combination of ridden patterns to utilize a horse's natural instinct to keep your horse asking questions. Depending on the course length, information to help with the beginnings of more engagement would also be covered.
The advanced course incorporates a larger ridden component and a smaller online section depending on the length of the course.
