Moorcroft Equine Rehabilitation Centre is running its first summer training camp at its facilities in West Sussex.

The camp, which will include one-to-one tuition, has been designed to provide adult riders with more confidence and gain a much deeper understanding of their horses’ needs and feedback.

The camp, which runs from 27-29 August, will also cover:

  • The art of long-reining to help improve horse’s posture and muscle development.
  • Basic massage skills and an understanding of palpation of the horse’s important muscles.
  • How to properly manage tack fitting.

All activities have been planned with social distancing in mind, to ensure the safety of all throughout.

Moorcroft’s facilities include an indoor and outdoor school, along with over 70 acres of grounds, and direct access onto the South Downs, which will be used for hacking during the camp.

Mary Frances, CEO at Moorcroft, comments: “This is the first time we have run a summer camp, but we understand that many riders are feeling the need to re-establish or renew a good relationships with their horse, especially given the recent restrictions may have forced them not to ride as much as usual.

“We hope spending a short, concentrated period with one-to-one guidance and specialist support, will ensure that riders leave us happy and with more confidence and knowledge.”

The 3-day camp is priced at £325 and includes stabling, turnout, lorry or trailer parking, all training, use of all facilities, lectures, refreshments and a light lunch each day.
