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.
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.

So today we are practising our TRT methods we are learning from Claire Gallimore Dressage.
Our show on Wednesday highlighted the tension in Rubi’s flying changes when we are away from home so today we will remind her how to put herself back into a relaxed state even when she feels nervous or anxious.
I love the way I can bring my other sport into work - the golfing umberella has been removed froM my golf bag temporarily 😂 ... See MoreSee Less
Hi, do you teach these methods? So could I come along and ride Hoggy, then bring my horse into the arena and teach him how to relax (and me)? x

Our strapline is something I think of all the time.
Today my horse was finding left bend hard and wanted to keep putting in flying changes I didn’t want. So I took a walk break. Evaluated my body and discovered my left seat bone was drifting too far left. Once I worked on myself for ten minutes then my horse went so much better.
Remember.... think of yourself as much if not more than what your horse is doing.
