THE first in a series of courses at Moorcroft Racehorse Centre at Slinfold takes place over three Saturdays in March, offering the opportunity to learn to long-rein using a well-trained Moorcroft horse.
This is a rare opportunity to experience hands-on help and a demonstration on a one-to-one basis.
The centre has a fine reputation for the quality of courses it runs every year and these also offer the opportunity to see at first hand the valuable work done by the centre in the retraining of ex-racehorses.
Dates for the courses are Saturdays March 15, 22 and 29, all starting at 10.30am and lasting approximately two hours. Book a place with manager Mary Henley-Smith on 079929 666408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile if you are interested in rehoming one of the centre’s lovely ex-racehorses, discuss your requirement with Mary on the above number.
Time will be given to try suitable horses in a relaxed environment and there will be opportunity to do this is often as needed to be sure the horse is the correct one for you. All these horses hack out safely alone or in company and are schooled with the basics.
A lot of time is spent making sure they are reliable and able to go on to long term, happy and sound working lives.
