Poles with pals

Details: “From a pole on the ground to bounces and triples, Alex is here to help, whether you want to work on straightness and balance to improve your dressage scores or to get those lines right when jumping a course. Alex tailors each session to you and your horse’s individual needs be it for the nervous first timer or the seasoned campaigner. Alex has a calm and encouraging approach to teaching helping you to achieve your goals without realising you have just done what you thought you couldn’t. The poles don’t have to leave the ground to get the benefits or enjoyment of jumping for you and your horse. The achievements and progression obtained with polework are hugely beneficial so if leaving the ground is not your thing then have a polework session, but if you are a high flyer lets work on the technique and make achieving a clear round easier.”
