Beach Clinic 2011

Beach Clinic 2011


Alison’s beach clinics were held last week at Brean in Somerset. The weather was challenging to say the least but it didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of any of the students taking part.

Both clinics were level 3/4 and were attended by seven students with horses including Nell Cruse and Jackie Evans both newly qualified 1* trainee instructors. Three other 1* Instructors, Emily and Paul Titcomb and Louise Broadway assisted Alison on various days of the clinics.

The standard of horsemanship over both clinics was exceptionally high allowing Alison to make full use of the open space of the beach with plenty of time at high tide to just have fun in the surf.

On Saturday evening everyone found their way to the local karaoke bar and amazingly they were all still fit enough to get back on the beach on Sunday morning.

Photographer Claire Spelling, visited a couple of days and has uploaded two galleries of photos from the clinic to her website.  and we have added several pictures to our gallery here under the teaching and just for fun sections.

"There is something about this place where you can be immersed and surrounded by great horsemanship. Live it, breath it, watch it, feel it, getting away from usual distractions, and laughs, did I mention the laughing? I for one will be back many times."
