"A free horse is a happy horse" - Ben Atkinson
Each day will start with a theory session from Ben, who will talk with us about his philosophy, his horses, how he achieves clarity, consistency & confidence and more! Ben will then guide riders through their individual sessions over both days. Riders are welcome to focus on ground/liberty or ridden work, so the clinic is open to both those who ride and those who don't. The two day clinic will take place at Ben Atkinson's stables, home to all the Atkinson Action Horses. At the venue we have use of a very large sand arena and a huge round pen. It is very open, so please bring clothing for all weathers, from sun cream to raincoats! Spectators, there is no need to bring your own chair as we have seating at the venue, although you are of course welcome to if you prefer. Please bring your own lunch and anything else you might need. We are intending to have tea and coffee available onsite, details TBC. Respectfully, we ask that spectators do not bring dogs to the venue. This is because we have our own dogs that will be on site throughout the weekend. We have limited spectator availability, please book early to avoid disappointment.
Ben is a professional equine stunt rider, trick trainer and rider from East Yorkshire. He has been riding his whole life and is a key member of the family business, Atkinson Action Horses, who have spent nearly three decades training horses and riders for Film, TV and live events. They pride themselves on being ready for any task that comes to them and they provide to the industry, horse master and lead actors horses, stunt training for riders and horses, liberty horses, carriage driving horses and classically trained dressage horses. "When I see a horse I see something that is pure and free, untainted by greed like humans are. I see something that will do anything for you and always love you no matter how many mistakes you make or how little you understand. They are the kindest and most generous creatures on the planet."  Ben Atkinson
