Back from our first Aspire Training GetAway! Read on to find out how it went :)

Italy GetAWay

The idea behind Aspire Training GetAways is to create a very special equestrian training experience for riders of all grassroots levels who love horses and enjoy learning, training and pushing themselves. We hope to learn ourselves from each trip as we go in order to improve the service the more we provide it.

The key ingredients that we are after when searching for the hosts of the GetAways are comfort for riders and horse friendly conditions for the horses. The latter might seem obvious but there are many incredibly beautiful centres and stables around the world where horses have very little to no turn out and can live in quite an artificial environment. This is not necessary for grassroots horses that do not compete at high levels so the search was and always will focus on places that are fun both for human and equines 🙂

Sharon and Lorenzo’s La Fiaba certainly ticks many of our boxes:

A little bit of human comfort 🙂

The long weekend aims at creating a full on bootcamp riding activity including horse care, in-hand work, post training video feedback (nice chunk of work for me on this one upon returning home 😉 We like the idea of combining trail riding with lessons, groundwork/in-hand work, body awareness training and yard work – the video below should give you a little more insight into the trip.

Our next planned training GetAway at La Fiaba will most likely be in September this year and we are also organising training GetAway to Poland in a very near future 🙂 If you would like to be kept informed on any future training trips please email Wiola on aspire@outlook.com
We hope to bootcamp many more riders in the years to come! 🙂

Huge thank you to our wonderful hosts for plenty of fun, delicious food and great company 🙂
