Welcome to Sparrow Oast

Welcome to Sparrow Oast, the home of the “Happy” horse. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and friendly environment for you to enjoy your horse whilst receiving a professional and caring service. Great care is taken to understand fully the individual requirements of each horse and rider. Full training livery is available all year round.

Dressage Simulator

Our training centre specialises in postural awareness of both horse and rider. The fully interactive training simulator has made a fantastic addition to our facility. By working closely with other practitioners such as osteopaths we can provide an all round service of care to horse and rider. With the installation of a Cyclo-ssage Pro Personal Therapy System we are able to offer riders every opportunity to help relieve tension and improve their posture both on and off their horse.

Here are some progress photos of our lovely sponsored rider Yasmin with Velvet. Having just had Velvet here for a few days we worked hard on her balance, rhythm and softness.
From the photos we can see how much more uphill Velvet is and carrying herself with greater hind limb flexion.

I’m thinking of setting up a Club for riders that are not doing the BD BYRDS or young riders events and offering something that involves interaction with other likeminded riders. Using Hoggy, and doing some training with myself and other trainers and some test Riding practise.

My aim is fun fun fun, encouraging riders to work together, help each other and encourage one another.

Anyone think this is something they would like to do? What would they want from it? All ideas gratefully received.
