Horse training

Dromgool Horsemanship’s advanced horse training helps you master your riding goals and dreams

What do you want to take to the next level in your riding?

  • Showjumping and eventing?
  • Hunting?
  • Endurance?
  • Working equitation?
  • Cowboy challenge?
  • Trekking?
  • Liberty work?
  • Dressage?
  • Local Ribbon days or adult riding club events?
  • Tricks?
  • In-hand work?

What got in the way of your dreams? All too often, we find the sad situation of horses and riders confined to their paddocks and couches because somewhere along the line, trust was broken, and all the confidence and happiness of riding was lost.

Once you get this back in our Journey to Freedom clinic, you start asking, well maybe just maybe I can have my dream. It doesn’t matter if you dream of ribbons at events, beaches, bareback, tricks or trekking, it is suddenly all possible again!
We will make a plan with you and get you well on your way to achieving your goals in only 5 days.

If you are ready for the next level of connection, fun and results with your horse, don’t miss this powerful workshop.

Our workshop provides 5 Full Days of Riding, Learning and Fun! Professionally designed to give you personal, intensive tuition that will give your dream wings!

Things we will be covering will include, but not limited to:

  • Canter work – transitions, engagement, working towards collection, flying changes
  • Lateral work – shoulder-in, renvers, travers, half-pass
  • Tricks to delight and impress! – ever wanted to lay your horse down, run-to-the-mark or teach him to stand on a box?
  • Soft forward contact – be able to adjust his posture – your horse is soft, happy and enjoying being on the journey with YOU!
  • Safe trekking skills – confident trail riding – ride out on the farm and up in the bush
  • Cowboy stuff – sliding stops, spins and rollbacks, moving cattle
  • Liberty work – have your horse so profoundly connected with you that there is no need for any equipment or tack
  • Working with Obstacles and jumps – complementing both working equitation and cowboy challenge skills – go win that competition!

Whatever your Dream is, Ken and Jane are committed to helping you bring it into reality and will work with you on any discipline, skill or technique that forwards your progress.
With a maximum of eight participants, there is plenty of ONE ON ONE time with Ken, Jane and the interns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? We have the answers

No – if you are wanting to do a Clinic with a break-in or a green horse then have a look at the Starting Clinic or the Journey to Freedom Clinic

Yes – we keep this Workshop small and personal so you and your horse get plenty of one on one attention. When Jane and Ken are both there you have 2 dedicated highly experienced teachers as well as our highly trained Interns.

Definitely – working your horses is one of the things that we really enjoy it helps get you and your horse to a place where you can really start to get connected. If you don’t want us to work your horse that is perfectly OK too – just let us know.

Yes absolutely! We do groundwork in the mornings and we ride after lunch transferring the skills you learnt in the morning to the ridden work.

This Workshop – being a graduate Workshop is suited to an established horse that you really want to do some advanced work with.

For young people 16 years of age and younger we require their guardian to be present – and you are free of charge if you are not participating with a horse. Please contact us to discuss your child’s potential participation in this Workshop.

This is only suitable at some venues, so you need to contact us to arrange this.

Bring a list with you of what you want to work on!

Customer Testimonials

Was really cool to put some of Jed and my new skills to use today out in the real world of a trek. 1. Self load in float to get there✔ 2. Quick ground school to check attention and softness✔ 3. Park up so I can mount off float mudguard ✔ 4. Cruise along calm and soft with no spookies✔ 5. Open a couple of gates without getting off✔ 6. Stand nicely for me to remount when required ✔ 3 hours of up hill down dale and not a hoof out of place! Love this horse more all the time! Things have certainly changed for the better since starting the Dromgool journey, and it’s cool how my friends are also noticing and commenting on the huge changes they can see in us both 😀 thanks Dromgools xx

Hi all. Omg i had the most amazing time doing this clinic! I observed for a day about 6 months ago an truly loved Ken an Jane!!! They are just super fantastic and fun but serious! It was a huge huge step outside my comfort zone but they made it so easy! I never felt embrassed or scared an was even speaking up!! Amazing people. This has not only helped my confidence in my horsemanship but reflected in2 my every day life as well! Im so in for a few more clinics yet!! Thank you so much!@@

–N.Key

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Jane and Ken, for the life changing experience Dante and I have just had on their riding holiday. Being able to put everything that we have learnt on the clinics into practice, was incredible for us. So many light bulb moments and seeing the small pieces of the puzzle come together and make such hugely profound changes with my horse, have just blown me away. I have now got a very happy and safe horse and am enjoying every minute.

Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing weekend. My green QH is so lucky to have done her 10th, 11th and 12th rides at your Auckland clinic. I know this has fast-tracked her learning fantastically and given her a massive boost so early in her ridden life. It was great to both Jane and Ken understand her immediately and teach her so much. I’m very grateful for the guidance and direction you both gave us!!

I have just spent an amazing 5 days with Ken and Jane on the Mastery through Connection Workshop. I have come away with a much clearer path of where I am going. I loved the fact that it was a small group of like-minded people and with 5 days there was great continuity.Being able to go out on the trails, put into practice everything we had learnt at previous clinics and Axl (my horse) has come away with a much more confident head on his shoulders (me too). He is happy to go out and try new things – hugely more rideable !!! Ken and Jane you are amazing, you both see and know so much. Working with you both has been the start of an incredible learning experience, looking for the finer details and having a clearer communication and partnership with my horse – gives me butterflies when I think how far we have come.I can’t recommend this clinic enough. I will definitely be back in February.
