January Training Clinic with Louise Robson of Thoroughbred Dressage

We are very excited to announce that Louise Robson of ‘Thoroughbred Dressage’ is making the trip from the UK to deliver Training Clinics and a Talk/Demonstration on the weekend of January 21st and 22nd.  This is the second in a series of Treo Eile organised clinics which are very kindly sponsored by Randox Health Ireland.


JAG Equestrian, in Kildare will play host on the Saturday, which will commence with semi-private training sessions with Louise.  All levels of riders and thoroughbreds at different stages of retraining will be catered for, on the flat and with the use of pole work.


At 3pm, Louise will deliver a talk and demonstration, which is open to the public.   She will give an insight into the make-up of thoroughbreds and their development during their race training phase of  life, and what needs to change on route to a second career.   Louise will provide those attending with a greater understanding of how we can assist our ex-racehorse, to make the mental and physical changes to transition successfully to our chosen discipline.


Sunday 22nd will see the clinic move to Kells Equestrian Centre in Meath.  Louise will take private or semi-private sessions for all levels or riders and ex-racehorses.  There will be no talk/demonstration on the Sunday.


Applications for both clinics and the talk/demonstration are being accepted on the following link Treo Eile – Its Plain Sailing Online Payments page events  The closing date for applications is Tuesday January 17th.


Louise runs the Thoroughbred Dressage stable, which is dedicated to the Retraining of Racehorses with a dressage focus. Louise competes at all levels from prelim, through the Inter II (almost at grand Prix) on her ex-racehorses. Her training principles come from the classical dressage techniques.


Her top horse, Quadrille, owned by HM The King, was RoR Horse of the Year in 2019 and is one of the highest competing ex-racehorses not only in the UK, but also the world. Quadrille is not the only ‘royal’ horse in the stable, Louise has been retraining for HM the Queen and now HM The King, for fifteen years and currently has three of HM The King’s horses in her stable. She also has horses from the Godolphin Lifetime Care Rehoming programme (Saint Gregoire) and travels to Newmarket once a month to help teach/train the horses at the Lifetime Care stables.


Thoroughbred Dressage also supports and trains many riders and horses who also go onto great success, in whatever pathway. She offers both in person training, along with help and support via her online training programmes, which allows Louise to help people all across the Globe.
