ABOUT THE CLINIC

TWO DAYS HORSEMANSHIP CLINIC

Time: 9.30 am – 5 pm

We will be running a two day clinic, for you to join with your horse.

Jean François Pignon’s ability to communicate and perform with horses without traditional restraints has earned him acclaim in the equestrian world.

In this 2 day clinic, JFP will share his knowledge with us all.

You do NOT need experience with liberty to join this clinic, it would be fabulous to have a variety of participants, from start to advanced, so that we can all learn the various stages and information that JFP will be sharing.

The clinic format will be two groups of 6 horses. 12 horses in total.

Depending on depth the groups, we will do one or two sessions per day.

Rider places are £400 for the 2 day clinic. Stabling is additional.

About the evening

40 Days, 4 CRIOLLOS AND SILENCE

Evening Doors open 7 pm, Start 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm

A fabulous evening to watch this beautiful, enlightening production together, followed by Q&A and meet & greet opportunity.

It all started with a crazy dream: to tame horses that had hardly had any contact with man and in their natural environment.
And the encounter between two men: Jean François PIGNON, a horse trainer, known worldwide and creator of a method of communication with horses that he shares with passion.
And Florent PAGNY, one of the most well-known French singers, in love with freedom in all its forms.
In the Argentinean pampas that he explored in every direction, Jean-François put his technique and his patience to the test, but above all this trip to Patagonia was an inner journey, one that was full of emotion and learning.
