Prestige Training offers advanced training and schoolmaster lessons for established riders looking to develop their knowledge and skill. We offer Prelim-Grand Prix level tuition for Dressage and 60cm – 1.20m level for Show Jumping.
We can help you to improve your own confidence towards your training to either take home to your own horse, as well as bringing your own horses for training sessions. Our packages enable you to have both schoolmaster session and then training sessions on your own horse to help aid your learning experience.
Whether you are looking to further your knowledge, rider movements you have always wanted to try, learn something new so you are able to train your own horse, aim towards riding in a competition at a specific level, train towards a specific show/exam or just have some fun, this is what prestige training is about.
We have some fabulous schoolmasters ranging from Prelim to Grand Prix Dressage horses and Novice to 1.20m Show Jumpers. All our horses are kind and forgiving and not intimidating, they are here for your pleasure and enjoyment and love the job they do. Our Schoolmasters are proudly sponsored by Kate Negus – Bespoke British bridlework.
Please note that we have a 48 hour cancellation policy & an upper weight restriction of 12st (may vary depending on fitness and rider balance) with Prestige bookings.
