Stay motivated this winter with our exciting new training series

  • The Horse & Hound eTraining Prelim Plan has been designed to help you stay motivated and to help you reach your training goals this winter. Whether your aims are to get inspiration for your schooling, perfect your prelim test-riding, compete more, achieve a personal best or join a virtual community to share the highs and lows of training, this programme is designed to help you enjoy your winter training more.

    Looking at what is needed for prelim tests 1 to 19, you’ll get the motivation and training you need to perform better than ever during this eTraining series, all from the comfort of your own arena.

    Is it for me?

    This plan is suitable for anyone who is looking to add some structure to their winter riding. With the arrival of the dark evenings, chilly temperatures and relentless rain, we all need some motivation. Our exercises, tips and advice will inspire you to stick with your training each week, and get you in the school.

    This plan is for everyone, from those wanting to take part in dressage competitions to those who just enjoy trying out new exercises at home.

    How does it work?

    On signing up to the programme, you’ll start receiving a series of emails to guide you through the process. Each week you’ll receive new exercises to try out at home, top tips and expert advice. You’ll also have the option to watch a rider performing each week’s prelim test with feedback from top judge, rider and trainer Isobel Wessels.

    What does the series involve?
