CLASSICAL DRESSAGE CLINICS

Nuno Cavaco provides International clinics in

  • Classical Dressage
  • In hand work
  • Demonstrations

Although we happily provide regular clinics with mixed and changing groups regular clients and new ones. It is also our aim to create groups of students that want to have an ongoing learning experience with regular clinics and maybe even a yearly visit to Portugal to train with us in the Portuguese sunshine.

“We believe this way we can give you the best possible opportunity to develop you and your horse’s skills”

To ensure that students receive a quality experience and keep up the learning between clinics we can provide ongoing live Skype training and video reviews.

Classical Dressage

How to organise your clinic  –

The Location

We recommend that you organise the event at an indoor arena with a good surface and with dimensions no less than 20 by 40 metres – we can work in smaller arenas but for your clients satisfaction and the opportunity to work many different dressage exercises you need a good size space. The ideal is 20 by 60 metres as then the more advanced riders can practice GranPrix tests.

If your clients are coming from many different arenas you may need local stabling available.

  • Catering facilities recommended especially drinks
  • Bathrooms essential
  • Good parking and turning spaces for trailers and lorries
  • Viewing arena  – there are two ways to consider this aspect you can offer tickets for spectators however we do think if you do this it is not giving your lesson students much privacy it is important to bare in mind they have paid for a private lesson.

A better option can be to offer an early evening demonstration with a questions and answers session or a public clinic with some riders happy to be the students in front of an audience.

The equestrian centre must carry full insurance and have a good safety policy.

All student are required to wear safety helmets and correct riding footwear. Nuno will sometimes rides horses but this is entirely at his discretion and not considered as part of the contract agreement.

  • Payment for Lessons
  • Lessons are charged at the agreed price per hour and not more than 8 students per day.  If it is a weekend course then price is as agree for the weekend.
  • All booked participants must have paid before the clinic.  50% paid on booking and the balance week before the event.

Cancellations – If a participant cancels within two weeks of the event they can receive back their deposit later cancellations and the deposit is not returned.

We learnt about Nuno Cavaco coming to England through a post from Stoneleigh Riding Club over two years ago. We booked straight away for a series of lessons over three days, as both Vanessa and I are keen followers of both the Portuguese and Spainish Riding School way of training. We were absolutely delighted that Nuno revealed what Carlos – our Danish Warmblood – was capable of. Much to our delight flying changes, half passes, shoulder in and collection suddenly became a goal for us to achieve on a horse that has turned out to be a wonderful schoolmaster.  We have since been to two more three day sessions with Nuno and horse, rider and trainer have learnt and improved by leaps and bounds. Thank you Nuno.

To train with Nuno is like taking lessons in dance. With soft instructions in English Nuno makes the difficult easy. Although the requirements are high, it is not difficult to meet him when he is doing everything for the rider and the horse to succeed. After the lesson I feel good

and my horse clearly shows how relaxed and happy he is.
