Horse Whisperer – Guy Robertson
Guy’s methods of training have been strongly influenced through his travels around the world and by studying some of the world’s greatest trainers, he believes that in order to learn horses must have confidence and respect for their handlers. Guy’s methods focus on gaining control over a horses movement using ground work techniques to soften supply and control the horse. Once this control is gained and a foundation established he then builds on this further developing and increasing the level of control he has on the ground and ten under saddle. Guy spends all of his time working horses at his home in Rawcliffe Bridge and running Horsemanship clinics and demonstrations.
Bob Hogg Sheepdog Display
Bob travels throughout the country with his team of working sheepdogs and has earned himself an excellent reputation for his professional and highly entertaining displays, in which dogs work sheep, geese and ducks.
The display is informative for both young and old, as Bob shares his unique training methods and great fun for the children as they are invited into the arena whilst the dogs work around an obstacle course, down a slide and into a pool.
