Brighthelm Training Services

Journal Entry: Fri May 11, 2012, 2:46 AM


I've decided I like doing training pictures of other people's horses so much I'm making this a bit more formal.

Brighthelm Training Services

Brighthelm Stables offer a range of training services to the wider public, from your first riding lesson to helping you with your passage, from backing a four year old to retraining an old racehorse. We offer training in the three major English disciplines as well as pleasure riding and general ground and riding training for horses.

These training sessions are usually available for dA points or an art trade.



Riding lessons available
Flying Snowman by femalefred
General riding lessons on the flat
These lessons are suited to less experienced riders, or riders who want to improve general things like their posture. You are welcome to use one of the Brighthelm horses for these lessons, or to bring your own with you.
These lessons may be taken by any of the following members of staff: Aaron Brody, Marion Saunders, Jemima Martins, Tanya Robinson, Pascale de Neveau

Bounce by femalefred
Lower level jumping lessons
If you want to learn to jump or are just starting and need help with your position, courses or anything of the sort, these lessons are ideal. As with general lessons on the flat, you are welcome to use a Brighthelm horse or to bring your own.
These lessons may be taken by any of the following members of staff: Aaron Brody, Marion Saunders, Jemima Martins, Tanya Robinson

Dressage lessons
These are more advanced classes, ideal for riders who are coming along in their dressage training and want that extra edge in competition. As with other lessons, you are welcome to use one of our horses or bring your own.
These lessons may be taken by: Aaron Brody, Marion Saunders, Pascale de Neveau

Harry and Rocci by femalefred
Show Jumping lessons
These advanced lessons are well suited to anyone who wants a few extra pointers on their show jumping, whether you need your horse to pick his feet up more cleanly or want to shave those extra few seconds off your round. As with all other lessons you are welcome to use a Brighthelm horse or bring your own.
These lessons may be taken by: Aaron Brody, Marion Saunders, Jemima Martins

Romeo Ascending by femalefred
Cross Country Lessons
Our cross country lessons are adapted specifically to suit your own training level. If you are just starting out we will work with you on basics like ditches, or if you're more advanced we are happy to work on whatever you desire. As with all other lessons you are welcome to use a Brighthelm horse or bring your own.
These lessons may be taken by: Aaron Brody, Marion Saunders, Tanya Robinson



Horse Training Available

Alaya's first hoofpick by femalefred
Basic ground training
We welcome horses of any age, and are happy to work on very basic ground manners with foals. This can include halter training, hoof picks, grooming or anything similar.
Training sessions like this may be taken by any member of staff

Lolly vs the pond by femalefred
Phobia/vice training
At Brighthelm we have a lot of experience of dealing with horses with specific phobias or vices, whether that's being afraid of the farrier or thinking a horse box is going to eat them! Using natural horsemanship methods we will work with your horse to help them overcome their fears or lessen their vices.
Training sessions like this will generally be taken by Aaron Brody or Marion Saunders, though other members of staff can be requested

Not sure I like this.. by femalefred
Breaking in
We are happy to break in or back horses above the age of 3, but prefer horses above 4. We will start basic under saddle training with any horse sent to be backed by us.

Pass the parcel by femalefred
Hacking/general riding training
If your horse won't stop napping when you leave the arena or bolts for home as soon as he sees his stable in the distance, we can help. Our hacking and general riding training sessions are designed to help build confidence and rideability in all horses.

I'd love to trade with you, but you'll have to wait for links and such until this evening. (I'm only sneaking in some dA before work.) :P

Ok, links! :dummy:

I've been training in English for a zillion years: Dressage, Haute Ecole, Endurance, Jumping, Cross Country

I'd love it if you could give Magdolna some jumping or XC training. We've decided that she doesn't like dressage, so we want to focus her on the more "intense" sports. She's a bit obstinate, so we're hoping that a more strenuous sport will make her more dedicated.

As far as I know, I am still boarding Thief of Time and Fujiama. I'd love to continue Thief's dressage training, and maybe do some flatwork and saddle manners with Fuji. Let me know if this is acceptable.

That sounds great :) I'd love to see training with either Thief or Fuji to be honest - if you're up for it I'll do two of Magdolna and you could do one for each of my boys? Or I could take another of your horses for another session :)
