Horse Clinics is a unique discovery website which allows riders to find equestrian clinics, demos, lectures, and training camps to help them learn, develop their riding and achieve their goals – all currently free! This one-stop-shop allows riders to quickly and easily discover the training clinics for their chosen discipline, in their local area.
This new initiative has already been well received, with support from some of the country’s leading coaches & riders including Richard Waygood MBE, Ernest Dillon FBHS and International 5* event rider Georgie Spence. It also provides coaches, trainers, and equestrian venues the perfect platform to promote their training clinics. The Horse Clinics website is initially free for accredited coaches wishing to list a clinic. The Horse Clinics team hopes that the platform will help to boost the visibility for accredited coaches and their training venues giving them a single place to promote their clinics in a clear and easy-to-access manner.
Horse Clinics was founded by Chrissy Cockerton, a digital technology marketing expert. Chrissy has been fortunate to regularly speak to experienced event rider, Helen Martin which has enabled her to gain a valuable firsthand insight from both a rider and coach perspective.
”Working so close to a professional eventer means I know the pressure and challenges they face to get the visibility they so badly need to grow their own businesses. Clinic and training promotion can involve lots of time spent on social media, putting information up and then answering queries, which I knew could be simplified. I have devised Horse Clinics to enable riders to search for and learn about training opportunities and dates, and for venues, professional riders and coaches to boost their profiles. I’m also grateful to Gina from Equiclass – a lady so passionate about supporting the equine industry”.
New developments coming soon
The platform is designed for both those organising clinics, and those searching to attend them. There are some exciting plans in the development coming later in the year, for sharing relevant equestrian products and services with website visitors.
The website, https://horseclinics.co.uk, is live now! If you would like to list your clinic or find a clinic, why not take a look around? If you have any questions at all about the Horse Clinics project, please get in touch with Chrissy by emailing Chrissy@horseclinics.co.uk or calling +44 (0) 7999 332230.
