Lucinda Green's 'XC the Safe Way' clinics aim to give riders a refresher and concentrate on safe riding techniques. These clinics are designed to develop mutual confidence between horse and rider and encourage the horse to think for himself.
Lucinda's one-day clinics last around 2 hours and incorporate cross-country technique work using skinnies and technical jumps before going out onto the cross-country course.
On each day there will usually be four groups with 5 or 6 horse and rider combinations grouped according to their level. Each group will last 2 hours and the first group may start as early as 8am.
As a guide, the minimum standard required is for both horse and rider to be confident jumping a course of 2'6" – 2'9" fences. Riders should usually be a minimum of 13 years of age but there is certainly no upper age limit.
Clinics are £90 per horse and rider combination and £80 for Petplan Equine customers.
