You must immediately inform me if you cannot make your booked session for whatever reason, cancellations with less than 72 hour’s notice require full session payment.
I highly recommend Intelligent Horsemanship courses for anyone looking to learn more about their horse, visit their website for more information.
Yes, if you have a horse that regularly spooks at something in a particular venue such as an indoor dressage arena, or does not load away from home, I can visit you as long as you have written permission given by the facility owner. I ask that you cover the cost for this venue yourself and ensure it meets health and safety regulations.
If I am coming to visit you regarding loading issues, I ask that you have a trailer or lorry readily hitched on a flat and level surface out of the way of hazards. You must ensure the trailer is hitched to a vehicle, and that they both meet health and safety regulations.
At Considerate Horsemanship, management of expectations is important. I understand that my clients are eager to see results. Whilst my training sessions are designed to create a roadmap to succeed, it's essential to note that the duration and effectiveness of results can vary on a number of factors. These factors include, your commitment to working with your horse in between my visits. In addition, there maybe situations where third party businesses are contacted such as saddlers, dentists and medical professionals. The bond and behaviour improvements are cultivated through ongoing dedication and practice. By working together and maintaining a continuous effort, we can create a harmonious relationship between you and your horse.
Unless you are booked for a loading session, I can bring most equipment to you such as long-lines, Dually headcollars etc. If we are using your equipment, before I come to visit you and your horse you must make sure that all equipment used is safe.
I work in most weather conditions, unless I feel it will make our session unsafe. For example, heavy rain whilst loading can make ramps slippery, in this instance we will rearrange the session, with no additional charge to you. Please let me know if weather has impacted any point of the journey such as a fallen tree/flooding.
If there are more than 1 horse at the same yard, I can look to provide discount and split millage, please get in touch with me to arrange this.
Yes, if you are interested in a clinic for spook busting, or various other topics. I can also offer talks on behaviour and psychology at a desired location. Please get in touch with me to arrange this.
Of course, as long as you are happy for them to be there. I understand that not everyone would like an audience, so please voice your feelings and I will politely ask onlookers to move away.
