Preparing Horses for Ridden Show and Working Hunter Classes

We had a great turnout for our Preparing Horses for Ridden Show and Working Hunter Classes clinic at Portmore. Many thanks to Philip Scott and Discover Cafre and our riding stars Jessica House, Claire Liddle and Nicky Nesbitt. I think it’s fair to say everyone went home with lots of tips for the show season!
