Events Schedule - Summer 2022

Please note: unless otherwise stated, Lessans events must be booked AND paid in advance. Payment will be non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by Lessans.

Margie Lowry Showjumping/Polework/Mini Jumping Lessons

EVERY WEDNESDAY: Former Irish international show jumper, Margie Lowry resumes her weekly jumping training sessions at Lessans. Small groups, tailored by age/ability where possible. Key skills covered at each session, aiming for overall jumping and course-riding improvement.
NEW ADDITION FOR 2022: for novices, those who prefer not to jump, or only want to jump small fences, Margie will offer the option of polework/mini jumping lessons instead, on an ongoing basis if enough interest.
Provisional lesson times between 6-8pm. £20 per person, each lesson must be booked in advance on a weekly basis. To book, please message the Lessans chat group (liveries) or facebook page. Groups/times won't be confirmed until minimum spaces are filled - groups will not run with less than four participants.

Have A Go Dressage competition
