Home Visits

MaverickMost people prefer to work in their own environment. An initial
consultation will include a full assessment of you and your
horse in order to understand your goals/ requirements or to start
finding possible causes behind unwanted behaviour.

Home visits can cover a wide range of topics including:

  • Groundwork/ Leading
  • Confidence Building (horse, owner or both!)
  • Long Lining
  • Feet handling
  • Loading
  • Catching
  • Developing a training plan for young horses
  • Unwanted behaviour (aggressiveness, rearing, spooking etc)
  • Training for desired behaviour (accepting of clippers, water, standing at a mounting block etc)
  • And so much more!

Once you have sent your initial enquiry, you will be asked to complete a new client form ahead of the appointment to ensure you and your horse questions are being heard straight away, this is sent to you via email. We will talk and prepare for your first session, in most cases I will bring all the equipment we will  need and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

As a guide, the initial visit will usually last between 1.5- 2 hours, while follow up visits are usually shorter (normally an hour). Loading sessions normally take between 2 hours and while
the majority of loading problems can be solved in one session,
more extreme cases may need to have 2-3 additional sessions depending on your horse’s requirements.

Initial Consultation (c1.5-2 hours) £85 + 45p per mile travel (return)
Follow up sessions £65 (c1 hour) + 45p per mile travel (return)

I will confirm the full amount of your session before you book for your peace of mind. Please note payment is required on the day of the visit (bank transfer, cash or cheque). If you would like to make a bank transfer I can send you my account details in advance for your ease.

Cancellations more than 48hrs in advance will not apply if the session is re-scheduled. A fee of £50 will be charged if the session is cancelled with less than 12 hours notice. If the session is mutually cancelled (due to weather or other event) and re-scheduled, no cancellation fee will be due.

Travel is based on a return trip from LN9 5QN, although I may have existing clients in your area, if so, I will reduce travel costs where possible. The full price of the session will be confirmed with you on booking.

Following your session I am happy to offer telephone support and I will keep in touch to check your progress/ any questions you may have.

Please note that I am fully insured to carry out all the above work and I carry my public liability insurance certificate with me if you or your yard owner wishes to confirm the details.
