Workshops

Find out how I can assist with a workshop.

I am asked regularly to attend Pony Clubs, Riding Clubs, Trade Shows and other speaking engagements.

Interstate visits can also be arranged.

Workshops can be designed to suit a particular audience (PC kids through to FEI riders).

They can include some of the following topics:

  • Anatomy and bitting
  • Basic snaffle bit overview
  • Measuring your horse
  • Fitting a bit
  • Bridle fittings
  • Bitless options
  • Mouth wounds and how to avoid them
  • How to choose a suitable bit

Cost

With horse $250 x4 spots available

Without horse* $100 x8 spots available

*Without horse participants are invited to watch and learn from the different bitting sessions and take part in the discussions.

However please note that I cannot give specific advice for your horse if I have not been able to assess it under saddle.

Workshops and Clinic days can be arranged with a talk, ridden bit fittings and stable bit fittings. See Bit Fitting Options for information.


I try and keep costs very minimal for Pony Club talks. I usually only charge a travel fee if I need to cover a large distance.

Discounts apply to group bookings. Please contact me for specific pricing by filling out the enquiry form.

Anna’s expertise in bit fitting is unparalleled in Australia. I would highly recommend her to anyone from high performance riders to pleasure riders. She’ll help you and your horse find exactly what fits for your partnership!
