Tom Beech - The Osteopathic Vet Clinic + Pick'n'Mix

Friday 24th May 2024

We have always believed any osteopathic treatment on the horse is made more effective with the correct follow up protocol for both horse and rider.

In addition to your Tom Beech appointment, instead of having a rigid timetable of events during the two days, we are offering a 'menu' of activities which you can pick and choose from. You can pick as many or as little as you like. The following activities are available to purchase, please click on the link at the bottom of the page to book your slot(s).

Poles.
Polework is good for improving balance, control and steering. It also requires precision, so it can help to refine your aids (and your horse's reaction to those aids), which benefits everyday riding and is also great gymnastic work for the horse.
This is a 30 minute session @ £40.

Babe - Rider Biomechanics.
‘Babe’ the Equicizer is our hand-crafted mechanical horse that simulates riding so you can improve overall fitness and practice skills. After all, horseback riders are athletes too so it makes sense that you work on yourself as much as you do your horse!
​"The way, in which you position your limbs, how stable you are and how you are able to influence your horse is done through the biomechanics of your body". We achieve this by taking you away from your horse and analyse your positioning and balance, using Franklin Balls and Bands to help rectify any issues.
This is a 30 minute session @ £40.

Franklin Method Equestrian session.
Equestrians need to be coordinated and balanced in their own bodies to be able to adequately adapt to the constant movement beneath them while riding. They also need to be mentally focused in order to connect and communicate with their horse.
The session combines anatomical embodiment and imagery to improve awareness, train the mind-body connection, and produce efficient movement with the use of Franklin Balls and Bands.
With practice in this method, equestrians become more aware of not only their own movement, but also the movement of their horse. Consequently, the connection between horse and rider becomes more clear and precise.
This is a mounted 30 minute session @ £40.

Dressage Lesson.
Flatwork by far is one of the most important things to focus on with any horse young or old. Its benefits are not only rewarding, but with a good Flatwork foundation you will in turn see massive improvements.
The lesson will be carried out inside the white boards of a long arena.
This is a 30 minute session @ £40.

Test Riding.

The test riding session will allow you to ride through a 20x60 test and then receive feedback in the form of a BD dressage sheet. You then have the opportunity to be guided through any chosen movements with the aim of improving the horse’s way of going within that particular test. You will then re-do the test and receive a second dressage sheet.

This is a 30 minute session @ £40.

Please choose your own 20x60 long arena test (which can now include Dressage to Music tests using our state-of-the-art sound system) and let us know upon booking.
