 Half Hour Long Reining Lesson

Long-reining is not that different to riding or driving when it comes to your hands.

It's possible to long rein with a very light contact too.

Long reining helps a horse to learn how to carry himself, how to bend, to be brave, all without the weight of a rider/carriage, and allows him to work in a straight line rather than round in circles. Long reining also allows us to see how our horses/ponies are carrying themselves.

Operates from our premises using our round pen, we can come to you for group/yard bookings, min people 6

(for 1 person, discount for group/yard)

Clinics can be arranged.
