The meachnical cow is a fantastic training tool. It's a remote controlled miniature cow that moves and turns at variable speed along the arena fence (40 meters). It's great for teaching horses to focus and follow and it helps spooky horses become more confident about novel objects and sudden movements.

We introduce horses to Betty in a calm and steady way from the ground with experienced horses leading the way to build confidence. Once your horse is comfortable watching and following the cow at the walk, you can start having some fun with stops and roll-backs (turns) at speed.

Do something fun with your horse, build his confidence and practice dressage and training movements at the same time!

The Garrocha, is a long pole that is traditionally used by the Doma Vaquera (Spanish Riders) who have developed it into an art form. Riding with the Garrocha is useful for improving horsemanship skills and improve the harmony between horse and rider.

We start off with your horse following the Garrocha being held by an expereinced rider. Once your horse is comfortable with the pole, you start at the walk carrying and dragging the pole. From there you build your skills working in circles and mastering forequarter and hindquarter turns under the pole!

The Garrocha is a great tool for perfecting your 20 meter circles, learning one-handed riding (which means having to use more of your seat and legs!) and helping your horse become more confident doing different things.
