Holidays with Your Horse


Janine Lamy

links_janine_lameyJanine is a British Dressage Regional Trainer based in Kent. With a background in the training of your event horses she is also very popular for show-jump instruction and cross-country schooling. She is a UKCC qualified coach and is on the BHS Register of Instructors.

“I use the Adds Farm venue for a series of monthly show jumping clinics attended by local riders (dates posted on both mine and the Adds Farm websites). These clinics have proved very popular and guests staying at Adds Farm B&B with their horses have often also joined in to combine some training with their riding holiday in the Ashdown Forest.

I will be running residential training ‘camps’ at Adds Farm. These can be modelled on the ‘TLC breaks’ as detailed on this website or can be tailored to a more training focused course. Please contact me or have a chat with Sue to discuss your requirements.”



Martine Weber

Jumping and flatwork lessons.

After many years training and eventing a wide variety of horses, I now train young/ nervous/ novice riders and horses.

I especially enjoy helping people with horses,  that have confidence or behavioural issues, whether it be flatwork, jumping or cross country.  I passionately believe both school work and jumping has to be FUN for both horse and rider to motivate them and make improvements.

I hold regular clinics in the South east and am happy to travel. Adds Farm’s school is an excellent venue to improve both yours and your horses confidence and technique, whatever your level. In addition, there are several good cross country courses available nearby to hire.

Equine Bowen

Aches and pains are common for most of us!!! Most people have minor stiffness and discomforts caused from old injuries or repetitive strains e.g working at an office desk/ on a computer/ mucking out etc. our horses are the same!! Like us, they are often happy to work through these minor aches and pains, but like us, sometimes they become worse than ‘minor,’ resulting in  reluctance or even inability to work or complete certain movements.

Bowen therapy is a gentle yet effective way to encourage the body ( human or equine!) to rebalance and heal. So often riders problems become the horses problems and vice versa!

I can check you and your horse’s skeletal alignment and any bio-mechanical  movement issues.  This check- up can also include checking your saddle fit if required. Treat your horse ( and maybe yourself too ) to a MOT and a relaxing treatment, whilst you are on holiday at Adds Farm

Rebecca Johns

links_rebecca_johnsA professional rider and trainer based in Sussex, I am a specialist in equine behaviour and its application to training, successfully working with owners and riders to retrain problem horses, modify unwanted behaviours, develop and support longer term training strategies and build rider confidence. I teach in a way that is ethical, safe, understandable (for you) and free from conflict (for the horse) – based on a thorough understanding of equine behaviour and equine learning theory, and the application of those to training.

I am happy to visit clients at Adds Farm for holiday training, or to give one off practical sessions on equine behaviour & learning theory if you want to learn while you holiday!
