Newton Hall are honoured to be hosting an afternoon Masterclass with International Event Rider and Olympian Caroline Powell.
The afternoon will be an amazing opportunity to get a rare insight into the training techniques of top level horses across all three disciplines, as well as hearing more from Caroline about her journey to the top. She will also be taking part in a Q & A for any questions you have about your own riding or horses' progress.
This event will be in aid of the Willberry Wonder Pony Charity (www.willberrywonderpony.org). Founded by Hannah Francis, the charity aims to support vital research into osteosarcoma and to grant equine related wishes to seriously ill people and their families.
Tickets are £40 (+ booking fee) and include a welcome drink and nibbles and we will be offering a set menu at the end of the evening (NB: Dinner is not included in the ticket price)
We will also be selling raffle tickets on the night for a chance to win some incredible prizes!
Places are STRICTLY limited so advance booking is essential.

ABOUT CAROLINE POWELL
Caroline is probably best known for her long term association with crowd favourite Lenamore with whom she won team bronze at London 2012 Olympics. The gutsy little grey won Burghley with Caroline in 2010 and they certainly had a unique partnership. Quirky, tricky and with a mind of his own Lenamore met his match with Caroline and they brought a combination of trust and flair to the cross country and made two appearances for Team New Zealand at Olympic level and enjoyed much success including 7 Badmintons and 5 Burghleys. Testament to Caroline’s long term care Lenamore was still out at 20 years old enjoying himself in the 2013 Hickstead Eventers Derby looking as feisty as ever.
Now based in Suffolk with the striking chestnut Onwards and Upwards as the star of her string, Caroline has a formidable string behind her as her young horses are moving swiftly up the levels and next season looks like being an exciting one.
With more than 25 Badminton, Burghley, Luhmühlen and Pau completions under her belt along with 2 World Games and 2 Olympics for Team New Zealand there is no sign of Caroline slowing down and she brings a wealth of experience to her team.

We are thrilled to announce that Spencer Wilton, one of Britain’s leading Dressage riders & currently ranked 15th in the FEI World rankings which is the highest placed British rider, will be back to Newton Hall Equitation Ltd on Saturday 25 August 2018.
Spencer Wilton was born and raised in Suffolk although now lives in Berkshire. He was a member of the Essex & Suffolk Hunt Pony Club and has competed in the disciplines of both Dressage & Eventing. He has worked for Ruth McMullen, Lucinda Green MBE & Sir Mark Todd as well as Carl Hester MBE and represented Great Britain at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro with his horse Super Nova II, where the Team finished Silver medallists. After a remarkable 2017 season (with 6 CDI victories to his name), Spencer and his horse Super Nova II are fielding a campaign towards WEG (to be held in Tryon during September this year).
Spencer will give a maximum of twelve, 45 minute individual training sessions within the indoor arena (starting at 9 am and progressing through the day), cost = £105 each. Sessions are available on a first come, first served basis and we recommend booking well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Learn how to feel more organised in your riding skills, learn about how to use your core strength to help balance and stability - Flat, Poles or Jump.
Katherine Walter says:
If you have ever sat on a horse feeling tears of frustration welling up whilst you are told you are still doing the same thing wrong.- you know it, but can't work it out as to WHY!?... then biomechanics coaching can really help this dilemma and solve the puzzle.
In my coaching I aim to give you the tools and correct 'map' to ride in balance, use your core strength correctly and to sit easily and naturally. Sit in a way that helps your horse to move underneath you with ease to become 'poetry in motion'!
If you haven't had a biomechanics lesson before and are not sure what it means then the general rule of biomechanics is to understand the mechanical cause-effect relationships that determine the rider/horse motions. Many riders come to me because they can't work out the 'HOW' of riding as continually told 'what to do' rather than 'How to do it!'.
I've trained with International coach Mary Wanless (BHSI and founder of 'Ride With Your Mind') for over 15 years in biomechanics. The solutions to problems are based on increasing the rider's understanding of what 'is', building reliance on clear perceptions instead of on a mental concept of how it 'ought to be'.
It's my belief that a horse must work with joy because he expects a reward, and not with anxiety because he is afraid of punishment and pain.
I am a BHS registered Intermediate coach and accredited biomechanics 'RWYM' coach (RIde WIth Your Mind and 'Master Dressage'- founded by Mary Wanless BHSI). All standards welcome.

Rider confidence stems not just from your mind-set as an athlete; it comes from an understanding of the relationship between rider and horse. To gain this understanding, we need to explore what makes us so different from our equine partners, and celebrate these unique differences and behaviours. From there, we can learn how to develop true and longstanding partnerships with our horse!
Join us and Jo Winfield, FBHS, in a evening road-show of the Eastern Region where she will explore both rider and horse psychologies, and equip riders with the tools they need to grow confidence and understanding in the saddle.
Whether you are show-wary, inexperienced, new to horsemanship or a regular eventer, there will be something to take away from each of these in-depth discussions that will help you to progress your passion.
The demonstration will include demonstration of novice and elementary level horse plus a teaching demonstration with one of Sylvia's stallions.
Cost: Tickets £25 in advance. Ticket on the door £30 if spaces are available but please check before hand! Refreshments will be available. To book your place, please contact Julia Fowler: firstname.lastname@example.org
All are welcome to come along and see what Newton Hall Equitation Ltd has to offer, whether you have been coming for years or never visited before!
There will be something for everyone, from musical ride, Equi-Fun, Dog Show, stalls and activities!
Proceeds will go to British Horse Society ‘Changing Lives Through Horses’ a charity who
