DRESSAGE CLINICS IN BARCELONA

Our 3-day clinics give you a unique opportunity to learn with the emphasis being that all students should notice a remarkable leap in their own abilities under the expert tuition of Agusti Elias, Lucca Elias, Annabelle Collins or another trainer of similar calibre. (All the trainers are riders at Grand Prix, regular competitors at International level, presenters, trainers and breeders of PRE horses).

Their methods of teaching classical dressage are simplistic & thorough. What you will learn should benefit you, and stay with you for a lifetime. Although the clinics are mostly suitable for experienced riders who have a prior knowledge of dressage, enthusiastic riders – confident with walk, trot and canter will be welcome, as long as they have an open mind and an ability to learn.

The yard consists of approx 70 boxes with two outdoor & one indoor arena, and an onsite restaurant. Horses range from novice to Grand Prix. The horses used are mostly Andalusian, on occasion Lusitano, Hispano Arab or Warmblood varying dependent on riders, level of training, etc.

The price of £650 is inclusive of hotel accommodation (based on two persons sharing) at a spa hotel, Vila de Caldes, restaurant lunch and tuition. Also included is airport collection/drop of (subject to everyone arriving on the same flight), and footage and photos of your experience. Hacking out is available, at a small extra charge. Evening meals are not included, as you may prefer to venture into the town of Caldes or even Barcelona for the evening. Flights are excluded, prices can vary, however they are usually very reasonable, and we will endeavour to find you the lowest fares available; indeed, with airlines sch as Ryanair, easyjet and MyTraveLite they can be found for as low as £25 return. The yard is 20 mins outside of BARCELONA, in Sabadell.

Itinary: Arrival Thursday evening where you will be met at Barcelona airport and escorted back to the hotel to allow you time to familiarise yourself with the rest of the group. Lessons are conducted on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. We will prepare a DVD of your lessons for you to keep. Sunday afternoon we will be taken back to Barcelona airport for our flight home.

"VAQUERA/TRICK" CLINICS IN BARCELONA

These 3-day clinics give you a unique opportunity to learn some more "typical" aspects of Spanish riding, especially focusing on the "tricks".  They are great fun, a little less formal and, for those who have been out of the saddle for a while, are easily daunted or would just love to try a few movements, see how to teach a horse to Spanish Walk or lie down, watch La Garrocha, play with imaginary bulls (horses permitting), as well as ride some pretty lovely animals, these clinics are a great way to really get into the Spanish Way!

The yard consists of approx 60 boxes with one outdoor arena, lunch is served in the house and the "chef" is incredible! Horses range from novice to Grand Prix. The horses used are mostly Andalusian, on occasion Lusitano, Hispano Arab or Warmblood varying dependent on riders, level of training, etc.

The price of £550 is inclusive of hotel accommodation (based on two persons sharing) at a spa hotel, Broquetas, which has a naturally heated pool in the lovely town of Caldes de Montbui.  Also included is restaurant lunch and tuition, airport collection/drop of (subject to everyone arriving on the same flight), and footage and photos of your experience.

Advanced Schoolmaster Classes

We are fortunate enough to be able to offer advanced schoolmaster classes from our yard in Barcelona and Verona.  This gives people an ideal opportunity to get to know the breed and experience some of the high school movements for, quite often the first time, which is a fabulous experience!

We love to share our horses and appreciate that, quite often it is difficult to find trainers who will allow people to ride their advanced horses.  Our Spanish boys have such amazing characters though, and love to "show off" at every opportunity. 

Many people find that a lovely way to treat a loved one relative is to purchase a gift voucher for a schoolmaster lesson.  These can be purchased for 65, please contact Sharron for further details of how to pay.  Please give us the name and delivery address (or email) of where you wish the voucher to be sent, along with the details of sender (if required) and any message and we will see to it that a voucher is sent.  The lucky recipient can then contact us directly to organise a date for their class.  Cameras and family members are welcome!
