'I was a spectator at the 2 day Biomechanics clinic Fran did at The Brandy House last week. She taught 1:1 sessions with 5 different horses and riders on the first day and I learnt something new from each session. Fran was great at teaching each horse and rider what was specific to them, whilst also explaining to those watching why she was using the same or different approach to the previous pair. The focus of the biomechanics was primarily on the rider but Fran’s natural horsemanship background meant that she was also able to do what the horse needed at any given point as well.
It was fascinating to see on the second day how both the riders’ and the horses’ positions had altered. The horses were very naturally stretching and rounding their backs and finding a frame - with no pushing and pulling, just a correction of the riders position and some ‘simple’ (but not easy!) exercises.
The weather wasn’t the best on day 2, and Richard’s warming soup by the fire was delicious and much appreciated. Also, the addition of a sheltered spectator area was brilliant!
I have now booked on the upcoming ‘Christmas Special’, and am really looking forward to spending 3 days with my horse experiencing the wonderful hospitality at The Brandy House, coupled with Fran’s great teaching, riding in amazing scenery and an aromatherapy massage! What more could you want!'
