Are you and your horse ready to level up your partnership?
Being physically fit as individuals means you can work together seamlessly as a team. Two strong parts add up to an even greater whole, and means you can reach those 2021 riding goals!
Over 12 weeks you can join Zoe & Seonaidh for focused, effective, horse and rider fitness tips, tricks, and exercises. Zoe (Veterinary Physiotherapist) and Seonaidh (Fitness & Mindset Coach) have worked together with horse and rider pairs to improve their performance and are now coming to support YOU!
What is Fit Horse, Fit Rider?
It’s a series of webinars from Zoe & Seonaidh - all hosted in a FREE Facebook group and going live every Tuesday at 6pm from 2nd February 2021 in partnership with Horsemanship Journal.
The months October to December are crucial on the equine calendar, as we attend exhibitions to watch inspiring displays and to shop! Seasonal events are moving online too, and a great deal of hard work and creative thinking has gone into making this change. Many retailers count on the large events that round off the year, I hope you can support the new formats for events this year, and we hope to virtually see you at the Horsemanship Showcase - pop by our virtual stand to say Hi!
