I am based in Switzerland, I’m a 40yo rerider looking to build up my confidence around horses, get more used to their reactions/movements/protests from the ground to complement my weekly riding private lesson. I have just been turned down as “stall helper” by my BO (with whom I haven’t got the best of chemistry but hey, the barn is close to home, nice horses and I have a stellar teacher there). This is a country where you can’t really “volunteer” at the barns, you need certificates, supervision etc. So: I’m looking for clinics, ground work weekend courses, retreats, anything at all that I could do! UK, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia really anywhere in Europe. Any place/activity to recommend? Also, anyone here speaks good German? The above-mentioned BO is suggesting I try to get some sort of certification but I cannot really judge from the description she sent whether this exam makes sense for me or even in general. Thanks!
