With the competition season on the horizon it’s time to invest in your schooling ready for your best year yet! Mary King and Chris Burton, as part of the Winter Inspiration with Baileys series, deliver four more high-impact exercises to fit into your schooling routine. Hannah Esberger-Hancock helps you to develop your horse’s engagement using shoulder-in and Hollie Swain talks you through how to use your cross-country schooling sessions to create a confident and bold horse. If you don’t have an arena to school in, hacking can also offer great opportunities to school. We’ve got some great exercises for you to try when you’re next pottering around the countryside.
We look at how to find the right riding instructor for you and your horse and, if you’re looking to change career, we’ve spoken to industry experts about their roles and how they got into them.
