Rider Development

Correct positioning, throughness of the horse without tension through the horses body into a straight, soft and self-carrying frame, is essential if you wish to show the horse at its full potential, show casing what nature has given to the horse while strengthening any weaknesses it may have.

Emma trains riders to communicate with the horse, through feeling and sensitivity. She encourages her students to take the time to learn the horse’s language. She truly believes that you must understand how your horse thinks and how it learns before you can begin to educate it.

Emma trains within the Classical German training scale and is available to assist riders with these techniques.

She takes all levels and types of horses and any skill level of rider. Her only stipulation is that the rider must be dedicated and prepared to work hard and complete their homework!

Lessons are conducted preferably at her base Millewa Lodge with the riders own horse.

Private lesson are available. Lessons are approximately 45 minutes in duration.

Horse Development and Education 

Emma and her head rider Jess Shaw are the sole riders of any horse that comes to her for training, so you can rest assured that it will be trained by Emma or Jess under Emmas instruction and guidance 100% of the time.

Horses are worked at least 5 days a week in the indoor arena and the outdoor arena, weather permitting.

Your horse can be stabled or yarded at night for maximum safety and comfort. They will be turned out in large field with post and rail fencing that has hot tape for additional protection during the day. Alternatively they can stay out at night if it is your preference.

All paddocks have a shelter with automatic waters.

Feeds are fed twice a day with ample hay. Horses are rugged according to weather conditions (owners to supply rugs).

If your horse requires any specific supplements or feeding regime, this can be accommodated.

Any requirements outside of standard schedule will be at an additional cost to the owner.

Worming, veterinary and farrier costs are not included but can be arranged at the owners expense.
