Constructive use of the Round Pen

You will learn:

  • How to construct a simple round pen
  • When to use a round pen
  • How to use a round pen with different types of horses
  • How to work a horse on long reins and at liberty

These courses are run in thirty acres of fabulous Devon countryside in a converted barn overlooking beautiful farmland. The horse paddocks adjoin thousands of acres of forestry and from them you can see both Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Each day starts at 9.00am in the 'classroom' moving out to study the herds of horses, as we need to, breaking for lunch at around 1.00pm please supply your own lunch. Tea coffee, biscuits etc are freely available all day.

We resume at about 2.00pm to finish at 5.00pm. As the courses are run over a weekend we will send you a list of accommodation ranging from campsites to luxury hotels - you take your pick! The work with the horses takes place outside so suitable clothing for the weather and safety is required including a B.S. standard hard hat and safety boots, gloves are useful too.
