The first camp of 2021 was held in Buckinghamshire at Bury Farm and was coached by David Prior, Matt Lanni, Claire Moir, Targa Hammond, Nicola McLeish, Corinne Bracken, Charlie Hutton and Andrew Saywell – plus guests Matt Goosey who specialises in strength and conditioning, Julia Scott-Douglas who specialise in nutrition, Coral Keen, GB eventer and coach and Robert Pickles FBHS dressage coach and judge.
All learners had discipline-specific training on their own horses; Andrew Saywell supported the showjumpers, Coral Keen supported the eventers and Robert Pickles and Charlie Hutton supported the dressage and event riders.
There was time for them all with their Haddon Training Trainer Coach to make progress against their apprenticeship on a range of modules such as; Develop Own Career within the Sport, Nutrition, Communication and many more. The strength and conditioning coach, Matt Goosey, had a session with all learners and completed comprehensive assessments of strength and movement, giving them very detailed feedback and areas of improvement; all the athletes came away with plans of how they could improve their general fitness, strength and condition.
There was also a website design company, Equimi, on hand to support all learners in building their business and taking it online; they offered support on marketing, social advertising, and communications.
We had some amazing feedback from the team and really look forward to running the next camps in the coming months.
‘So good to be back with the Haddon team after a year of COVID. These camps are invaluable. Our most recent camp at Bury Farm was very educational and there was so much learnt in the books and in the saddle. The coaches we have, in every aspect, are second to none.’
‘I think having it over two days was brilliant, I had amazing lessons with Andrew Saywell on both my horses’
‘Its given me a lot to think about, I really couldn’t recommend this course enough, get in touch and take a look at this’
‘I believe the AASE programme, along with the camps, is a great pathway to support riders with in the overall concept of the sport. The workshops held during the camps are all relevant to the modern sport and offer top tuition to develop riders into top athletes.’
