Long Weekend Courses

Long Weekend Ridden / Groundwork Courses with Becky Chapman

Many of our Courses were cancelled due to Covid 19.

We have amended our Course formats, increased the size of the classroom and further reduced Course participant numbers to ensure physical distancing .

With Course places so limited we are now also offering Intensive One-to-One Training at Ashen E.C.

All of our courses are tailored to the needs of the participants and combine rider bio-mechanics with ethical, classical training techniques.

Becky says,“Courses are the quickest, most fun and effective way of making progress and we offer you the unique opportunity to learn in a positive, friendly environment, and to really focus on your riding and your relationship with your horse.”
