External Clinics

Paul is a popular and skilled trainer of all ages and levels of rider. He is available for clinics and lecture demos for Riding Clubs and Pony Clubs as well as other large groups. He is also happy to teach individuals or smaller groups either at his base, Wickstead Equestrian Centre, or at other locations around the UK or even further afield! He has wide ranging experience in teaching all three disciplines and always adds a touch of his humour to keep everyone entertained. During the eventing season (March – October) Paul is extremely busy and is mostly away at events for five or six days a week. From November – February he has more time for teaching and training so if you would like to book him for a clinic this is the best time to go for!

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you from everyone here at Burley Lodge for last Saturday. All the girls who took part and those who watched thought Paul was fab!  They all learnt a lot.”

“Just wanted to say thanks for a really good day.  Paul is a brilliant trainer – very constructive and loads of advice. I will definitely keep my eyes open for further clinics. Completely shattered by the end of the day after all the heat, but very well worth it!”

“Hannah had a great lesson and learnt a lot from him – in fact everyone I have spoken to has said the same. Thanks again and please let us know if Paul is doing another clinic.”

“Paul is great at explaining things so that I can understand. I can’t wait for the next clinic!”

“Even though I was not riding I really learnt a lot by listening to what Paul had to say. If you could possibly pass on the thanks to him and say that I enjoyed myself very much.”

Paul’s amusing and inspiring instruction helped each attendee become more aware of how their position and movement affected their horse.”
