Stables to become home to international trainers as they host clinics
5:30pm Friday 7th September 2012 in News
AN Ollerton stables will be hosting a range of international trainers over the next few weeks.
New Barn Equestrian Centre, owned and developed by Pam Rigby, a British Horse Society Intermediate Instructor, now boasts facilities including a double-sized indoor arena and lecture room.
In the first 12 months since the centre was approved by the British Horse Society, four top level international trainers have used it as a venue.
French classical riding trainer François Lemaire de Ruffieu, who trained at the Cadre Noir in Saumur and is now based in Florida, held a popular four day clinic in the spring, and will be running a second clinic at New Barn from September 9 to 13.
Instructor Nelleke Deen from Canada held a training course and examination for British riders earlier in the year, while fellow Canadian Sue Leffler used New Barn as her north west base whilst on her British tour.
These clinics were organised in association with Lisa Pritchard of The Modern Horse, and further events are planned for 2013.
This summer, Karen Lewty from the British Horse Society organised a two day dressage course with Manuella McLean from the Australian Equine Behaviour College.
Despite her busy Olympics and Paralympics schedule, Manuella returned to the stables by popular request at the end of August for a second clinic.
Finally, Portuguese trainer Antonio Calamaros returns to New Barn for a second training clinic in September.
