What to expect:


Demo Days

These days are based as an introduction to new or interested students. They are held in the summer months in Claire's playground. The day will consist of demos from Claire's existing students of all levels, followed by a demo from Claire with her two horses. There will be lots of opportunities to speak to existing students and Claire. Its the perfect chance to ask any questions and meet other enthuaiasts in your area.

Only £10 per ticket, Bonhomie Club members FREE. Please bring a chair. 


Clinic Days

Clinics days consist of six students with their horses and are held in ménage and/or Parelli playground unless otherwise stated. The day includes 3 hours of horsemanship tuition on the ground and riding for those that want to, as well as simulations and theory without horses to help to develop your feel and timing.

All the one day clinics cost £75 per student. These will require a £40 deposit to secure your place. Two day clinics will cost £140 per student. These will require a £70  deposit to secure your place.  The remaining amount will be due one month prior to the clinic date.

If you need to cancel, I will be happy to refund your full balance to you providing it is more than 24 hours notice and I can get another student to attend in your place.

Spectators are welcome  FOC for the day. They will be involved in all the simulations and theory lessons and can observe the horsemanship lessons throughout the day.

All horses ridden on clinic days must be already started with at least 100 hrs of riding.  Certfied hard hats must be worn at all times when mounted.
Children under 10yrs of age will not be permitted to ride at the clinic days unless given special permission by Claire.

Extremely challenging horses and stallions will not be admitted on clinic days, please contact Claire direct to book a private consultation or ask advice.
