'Jump for Joy' - Savvy Camp

Taught by 4* instructor Rachael Shawyer and 3* Instructor Tracey Duncan




This course will be incorporated into our 'super camp' for 2022. If you are wanting to do a jump for joy course then 'super camp' will cover all the same things and more. 

Taught jointly by Rachael Shawyer and Tracey Duncan, this camp is all about adding purpose to your riding. Loosely based around the elements of a one day event, we'll take you through the different disciplines using and improving your Parelli foundation to build higher levels of rapport, respect, impulsion and flexion as you tackle obstacles and challenges together. Learn how to set your horse up for success in new environments, teach them to seek out jumps and obstacles. Improve your balance and position over fences and ride different combinations of jumps. The week culminates in a friendly 'competition' where the emphasis is more on fun and partnership than winning. 

If you fancy having a go at jumping and x country in a safe supportive way, then this is the ideal course for you.

What can you expect from this course


With  a mixture of Classroom theory sessions, practical simulations and practical online and riding lessons with your horse we'll cover topics such as:

  • Reading your horse and how to set them up for success in new environments such as courses, competitions and fun days.
  • Improving yields so your horse responds more lightly and willingly to your aids.
  • Learning about striding distances between poles and combination jumps and how to set them up for your horse.
  • Achieve better balance in the saddle and over jumps
  • Improve your jumping position.
  • Play online over coloured poles and x country fences.
  • Be a confident leader for your horse whilst riding individually and as part of a group in the arena and out in larger spaces such as the small play field and the cross country field.
  • Help your horse find rhythm and relaxation whilst jumping and approach jumps willingly and confidently, both on the ground and ridden.
  • Gridwork
  • Jump different types of jumps and combinations such as corners, skinnys, dog legs and doubles.
  • Take part in a fun competition where the emphasis is on partnership and not winning.

"What a brilliant week Jolly and I had ❤️❤️ I really feel like we are becoming a team!, it was so cool flying about on my beautiful Jolly and he loved every minute of it, although I think he may be a bit tired now.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Rachael and Tracey. You are making dreams come true! Such a fun course, with a lovely group of people." - Sue Garrido 2019

"I couldn't be more pleased with my Chico pony, he was amazing, we learnt so much!
We conquered our fear of cantering downhill, ended up jumping over skinnys downhill too, done so much in 5 days. Was with such a brilliant and supportive group of people with amazing instruction from Rachael Shawyer and Tracey Duncan, my confidence has grown so much.
Defiantly recommend this course to anyone with a natural horsemanship background, just brilliant 😀"Wendy smith 2019


 "This was my 2nd time on Jump for Joy and we are so pleased with our achievements….cantering and jumping downhill now when last year we could only walk the downhills!  Rachael and Tracy know exactly how to mange confidence levels and exposure for both the horses and humans, to always set it up for success. No matter if you want to trot over ground poles or canter over x country you will feel welcomed and supported to progress at your own level. I would recommend this course 100% for fun progressive learning "  - Cheryl Warner Jump for Joy 2018


" Home after just having a brilliant 5 days on the Jump for Joy course with Rachael Shawyer and Tracey Duncan. Ted was awesome 😍 . We’ve learnt so much and accomplished lots of firsts......we’ve jumped corners, spreads, done dog legs and skinnies and grids to name a few. Ted was calm in an arena and field with 9 other horses cantering and jumping and didn’t bat an eye lid.......another first! The change in him is amazing......I’m so incredibly proud of him ❤️ Thankyou Rachael and Tracey for your help. I’m still grinning 😁." 


"I can’t recommend this course enough! It’s perfect If you’ve never jumped before but want to learn or if you've lost your confidence and want to regain it and also if you are already confident jumping but want to improve your technique and connection with your horse. I’m definitely booking my place for next year. " - Sam Fox,  Sept 2018

 "Had the most amazing week away on Rachael Morland and Tracey Duncan Jump for Joy clinic"

"Can't wait till next year to do it all over again."

- Sarah Luckin,  Jump for Joy 2017

Back from a fabulous week in Derbyshire with Rachael Morland & Tracey Duncan on the Jump 4 Joy course. This week has really crystallised some important concepts that I have been struggling with. The focussed purpose helped. As did a throw away comment by Rach - 'you wanna flow chart that!' -I did & it helped! I also really got a feel for how Fin can & should move & how I am responsible for expecting it & getting it."


"Now I have distinct markers to work on & rate progress - Respect, Connection, Impulsion, Calm. Thank you to the fab group for making it a safe fun zone."
