Today saw our lovely riders and horses braving the freezing cold, rain and sleet to take part in the fabulous Mia Palles-Clark showjumping clinic.
Each class grouped together riders of similar ability and fence heights ranging from 2' up to 3'3. Mia specialises in confidence building, technical development and performance planning for all levels and age of horse and rider, and proved to be the perfect coach really encouraging participants to push themselves.
Mia started each class with ground poles, taking time to get to know each rider and their horse/pony. Towards the end of the clinic, riders tackled a small course and learning to ride the perfect line into a fence and correct striding seemed to be the order of the day!
From the sidelines, we really enjoyed seeing the various horse and rider combinations improve throughout the session following Mia's constructive tuition.
Well done to everybody who took part today and a special thank you to Mia for joining us at Grey Fern Park to run a fantastic clinic - we hope you have all warmed up a bit by now!
