Horse Agility Accredited Trainer (HAAT)

Posted in: Horse Agility

Equi-libre Horses is delighted to announce that Jo Hughes has received her full accreditation as a Horse Agility Trainer (HAAT)

As such, Jo is now available to teach and train Horse Agility as well as run and judge competitions.

Jo can bring her Horse Agility course to your yard for a training and competition day. Horses and handlers do not need to have any prior experience with Horse Agility to take part, just come along for a day full of fun, laughter and trust building with your horse.

Jo can also bring one or two of her obstacles for private lessons. Please get in touch if this is of interest.

What is Horse Agility?

Horse Agility is a discipline and internationally competitive sport in which horse and handler, both on foot, navigate a course of obstacles while focusing on clear communication and positive horsemanship.

All horses and ponies can join in Horse Agility whether they are ridden or not in other competitions, they just need to be in good physical condition.

Everyone can join in – children and adults of all ages, fitness levels and ability, the people do the training, the horse does most of the energetic bit!

The Horse Agility Club’s primary aim is to bring together people who have been practicing horse agility worldwide and support those who would like to become part of a competitive arm to develop it as a well organized, structured and standardized sport.

The Club now has over 400 members in  the UK alone with overseas membership growing, 40 registered instructors and over 450 horses registered as Agility Horses.

Horse Agility is not just about playing with horses, it strengthens the bond between horse and handler without the use of gadgets or quick fixes. The eventual aim of Horse Agility is for the horse to run completely free of any restraint, directed round a course of obstacles by the handler.
