Bombproof and Bond Session
Understanding and improving the relationship between you and your horse, both physically and psychologically. Working together with experienced equine instruction BD coach and Judge Michelle Harris and qualified psychotherapist Joanne Wagstaff to overcome your hurdles.


This session can be done in hand or ridden.

We will be working with you to negotiate obstacles in a confident way, in a way you can have fun, feel safe and relaxed so that you can transfer the skills at home, hacking or at shows. You can choose to train in hand or ridden or a bit of both. We have a few challenges, accurately negotiating poles, bridges, spooky objects. Difficult to explain so we hope to post a video soon to show our work. We help you practically but psychologically too so you can achieve without feeling tense, worried or anxious.

If you are fearful, a horse will back off. If you are calm and confident, it will come forward. For those who are often flattered or feared, the horse can be a welcome mirror of the best in human nature.
