Pole Clinic with Hannah Dury Equine Therapist
Pole work clinics are designed to improve your horses way of going. These sessions are completely adaptable, therefore, accommodating all ages and abilities of horse/ rider.
A short discussion into the horses history and pathologies/ injuries takes place. A number of exercises are then explain to the rider/handler, practiced and adapted for that horses needs. Finally, an outline of possible progression is given for the rider/handler to go away and practice at home.
**If appropriate I will also ride/ in-hand demonstrate the exercises myself with the clients horse**
