Horse Agility

 A new and exciting sport

 Is your horse playful, energetic and looking for fun?

 

There is a new sport called Horse Agility quickly growing in popularity in the UK and across Europe. In horse agility the horse has to negotiate a number of obstacles at the handler’s request.

 The Horse Agility Club was set up by Vanessa Bee of Positive Horsemanship in the UK.

Laura Domenica from Connected Horsemanship is an accredited HAAT (Horse agility accredited trainer) and will be setting up Horse Agility club of Ireland training days all over Ireland and running competitions

We will shortly have a Horse Agility Club of Ireland Facebook page. Please have a look and if you like what you see give us the thumbs up “LIKE “

 Theree are five horse agility levels.

Starter level–   easy obstacles designed to instil confidence and courage into horse and handler.

First level – similar but with slightly more difficult obstacles.

 Medium level– as above, but against the clock

 Advanced level –   as above and against the clock but with one obstacle that is a wild card and has not been seen by competitors before.

 Freestyle Agility – at medium level but horse is completely free and works loose over the course under the direction of the handler.

 Wild Agility- a course of 12 natural obstacles over at least 5km competed against the clock, horse on bridle and light lead rope.
