Dear Clients,

As a result of the COVID-19 current situation and government guidelines we have taken the decision to close the Riding School until further notice, we have cancelled lessons and facility hire for the next two weeks and will give you updates as to when we will be able to resume a normal or reduced service.

All lessons that have been booked will be transferred using our token system on EC Pro, these tokens will be valid on your account until the end of the year.

Facility hire will also receive transfer credit on their My Riding Life diary.

Please be assured that in these challenging times our focus is now on the welfare of the horses and ponies and keeping them in a routine and cared for with limited staffing numbers so we can return back to lessons when it’s appropriate.

If you can bear with us as we will be operating with limited staff and therefore will get back to your emails within 3 to 5 working days.

From the team here at Wellington Riding we wish you and your families well, stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Best Wishes,
David Sheerin
General Manager

SOME TOP TIPS FOR RIDER PERFORMANCE THIS WEEKEND! from Jenni Winter of Flying Changes Coaching who will be on-site at the event as a fence sponsor & as a trade stand!

Humans when they are put under pressure or stressed will release the hormones adrenaline and cortisol. These are designed to heighten your awareness and increase your reaction times. Although they can have the opposite affect if they get too high and they can put you into “fight or flight” mode and that stops your logical brain from functioning and switches to your primal survival brain function. Being focused and very aware of your body is amazingly powerful for you as a rider. When you are totally “in the zone”, focused only on your body and your horses’ body, you are able to make fast adjustments and support your horse to do their job. So here are some top tips on how to use nerves to your advantage and actually get them to help you at competition… Top Tips for Eventers – Using Nerves to Your Advantage at a Competition 1 – Identify that your behaviour has changed and also to think about what may have triggered it. 2 – Work out the best way for you to bring down your hormone levels and use them to focus your mind and body. Normally breathing deeply is a very good start. 3 – Take a moment to get present. This means focusing on the sounds around you, your body, and your breath. Let any negative thoughts flow away for now. 4 – Think about releasing tension in your jaw, shoulders, neck, back etc all the way down to your toes. This is very quick to do. 5 – Put things into perspective. There will always be another test, another show, another day. This is about doing your best. Your best is very rarely achieved in fight or flight mode! 6 – Remember why you are here. Why you love this. What is motivating you to do it and how much you love riding your horse!!!
