Cross Country Training with Ann O’Grady
February 25, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm€20
In her yard in Newcastle West. What an opportunity to learn from a true professional! If you want to try your hand at Hunter Trials or Eventing this season or would like to aim at Minimus or tetrathlon, don’t miss this amazing opportunity!
Groups will be split in levels of ability with a max of 6 riders per group. Sessions will start in the outdoor arena before going out to the XC fences and will last 1&1/2 hours approx. Cost €20.
Riders need to have D+ or be of D+ ability ( ie. jump 60/70-cm confidently and be able to control their ponies outdoors, ask DC or instructor if unsure).
Level 3 body protectors and approved helmets are mandatory. Boots and chaps or long riding boots. Leg protections for the ponies if needed. Check your tack is in good order! Jumping cross country is not the time for a strap to snap! Bring bucket, sponge, sweat scraper and sweat rug to clean and cool your pony down after riding and before travelling home.
