Services and Rates

 

You are welcome to either book only lessons or only Bodywork for your horse but I do recommend a combination as it gives me the big picture of you as a team. All my services can be tailored to suit you and your horse and I am happy to travel within the Canterbury area. Travel costs apply and group discount is available if more than three horses are at the same venue.

Lessons

 

I am a certified Icelandic Horse coach but I am open to working with all horse breeds and types. Lessons will be tailored to suit your individual goals. My specialisation is tuition for riders who are interested in the special gaits of the Icelandic Horse. I like working on developing balance in all the gaits through basic dressage and lateral work in preparation for tolt. As well as working on developing the balance of the horse in four or five gaits, I also have a special interest in rider asymmetry and how it influences the horse.   

 

Individual Lesson - NZD 40 

45 minutes

 

5 Lesson Loyalty Card - NZD 180

expires after 6 months from the date of the first lesson


 

Training

 

Training or schooling services are especially beneficial when used over a longer, consecutive period of time, rather than a session every now and then. I can help with starting your young horse, tolt training, specific schooling issues or just keeping your horse in quality work while you are away for longer. 

 

Individual Session Training - NZD 40

45 minutes

 

Training block of 4 weeks - NZD 600*

includes 4 training sessions per week

*grazing and hay not included, please contact me to discuss an arrangement 

 

 

Individual Groundwork and lungeing session - NZD 25

25 minutes 

 

I believe that groundwork and lungeing are great in combination with Bodywork. I can help your horse with specific exercises in relation to the areas of concern found during the Bodywork. It is also a great way to gain strength in preparation for riding for young horses or after injuries of horse or rider and if you simply want to do something different.
