RACHEL HOWARD SERVICES
I really enjoy helping to improve horse rider partnerships and building confidence.
I am keen to understand your goals & what you would like to improve as well as to make lessons enjoyable.
I have a particular interest in improving rider position. Good balance and security in the saddle is important both for your confidence and safety and your horses well being as this enables you to communicate more sympathetically with your horse.
I am also able to help with giving you the tools to progress your horses schooling and to improve your partnership with your horse. I can help with preparation for dressage competitions & help you with your jumping position, confidence & improving your riding between fences if you or your horse are novices.
HORSE CARE & TURNOUT
Do you need help with preparing for a show or would you like your horse plaited, trimmed or bathed for a special occasion. I am experienced at all aspects of horse care & with lots of different breeds & types of horses.
I have lots of experience with breeding & raising young stock, having bred a handful of youngsters over quite a period of time which has given me the chance to learn and make changes and improvements as I have gone along. If you need any help or support with handling or raising young stock I am more than happy to help with this. I could also help with preparations for presenting at the futurities or mare grading.
Do you need help keeping your horse fit, I am available to hack out or school well behaved horses or ponies. I can also help with fitness and schooling by lunging or long reining (which maybe an option for very small ponies) or youngsters. Or would you like someone on the ground when you are starting your youngster or for your first few rides.
I really enjoy clipping & take pride in a smart finish and tidy lines as well as being patient with nervous horses.
YARD WORK & HOLIDAY CARE
Do you need someone to help with yard work during holidays etc or you need someone to look after your horses when you are away.
