Earlier this year I decided to open several more places on the Academy programmes and it’s time to invite further 3 riders to join us! Place one – with Oscar.
Meet Oscar, 16.1hh, 6 year old Irish Sports Horse gelding owned by Paige Burford.
Oscar is a young horse with a history of a few serious injuries which means he requires sympathetic and thorough approach to training in order to help him develop further. He can be straightforward to ride on his good day and might need more rider’s guidance on his weaker days. He can be quirky but his behaviour is not dangerous, it is more of a schooling quirkiness than violent playfulness.
Rider Profile for this training place:
Oscar is available for the rider ready to join our Development Programme i.e. one who:
- is aware of natural crookedness of every horse and how this affects their performance;
- has stable basic seat in walk, trot and canter, stable light seat over poles/cavalleti and is happy jumping small jumps (2’6 to 3ft)
- has a calm and patient attitude to schooling
- has plenty of curiosity about how to help a horse work to its best and has a strong desire to learn more about schooling for soundness and longevity
- is confident enough to be able to remain relaxed and calm when dealing with horse’s balance and straightness issues like falling in and out on turns and circles (no need to be gang – ho, simply being confident in own seat and balance is all Oscar needs)
- loves solving schooling puzzles!
- loves training and taking young horses out and about to learn more about life and compete from time to time at grassroots levels of dressage and/or jumping.
- weekly lessons (more frequent training options also available)
- opportunity to take Oscar to training trips (lessons at variety of venues – flatwork, jumping, XC)
- Intensive Training Camps
How it Works
All Academy training for riders without own horses (or wanting to join in without own horse) is based on riders loaning or sharing suitable horses at the venue the training takes place. Availability of training places depends on availability of those horses. More information on our website http://www.aspireequestrianacademy.com. Please have a look around before contacting us so you can familiarise yourself with the coaching offer and decide if it’s for you. Happy to answer any questions and queries anytime 🙂
