The Trust will shortly complete its 30th year. Its purpose has always been to provide top level training to those who could not otherwise access it, and thereby to give a firm foundation so that the Instructor members would be equipped to teach with greater clarity and authority further afield. Many of the TTT Instructor Members have now gone on to become successful trainers in their own right. The Trust is proud that they continue to spread the knowledge gained at the TTT, and that the TTT legacy is strong. When Tom and Jennifer Sewell started the Trust in 1987, there were hardly any clinics, nor lecture/demonstrations and certainly no continuity in training. That situation has changed beyond all recognition. As Charles de Kunffy recently noted, Dressage in the UK is now a force to be reckoned with. Dressage is no longer a minority sport, and all disciplines understand its value in the training of their horses. Today there is a great choice of talented trainers and a huge number of conferences and demonstrations to attend and groups to belong to.

The Trust has provided a continuous annual programme that included Seminars, Lecture/Demonstrations and a variety of Clinics so that the theory behind classical horsemanship is combined with the practicalities of training horses - all with the horses welfare in mind.

We are incredibly grateful to all our International Trainers, Senior Instructors and Members who have unstintingly supported the TTT.

The last four events will be going ahead as scheduled below.
Please come and enjoy them. As always, we welcome all spectators, Members and Non-Members alike.

Senior Instructors Clinic (S.I.C.): Nov 27/28

Monday 10:00 - 18:00
Tuesday 08:30 - 16:00

These 2-day clinics are taken by the Trust's Instructors and form the basis of the TTT's educational structure. Places are available to all Riding Members. Spectators are always encouraged and welcomed.

The clinics consist of half-hour private sessions, with opportunities for questions and discussions. There is a Riders' Forum on the first evening, where the riders and trainers meet in a relaxed atmosphere to discuss the days' work and to clarify points that have arisen.

Places are available to all Riding Members: please apply directly to the Secretary.  Spectators (includes non-TTT members as well as members) are always welcome and encouraged, and they can book online.

Miguel Ralao Clinic ~ December 5/6

Tuesday 09:00-18:00
Wednesday 08:00- 16:30

Miguel delights the audience with his training philosophy, quiet, effective training methods and wonderful riding. He takes time to explain everything clearly to his riders and he also rides many of the horses in order to help them take the next positive steps forward in their training. The riders then get a great feel of what it is they are looking for and it is fabulous to watch the horses (and riders!) grow in confidence and understanding. Miguel's equestrian education is steeped in the Classical traditions, and he is also an International Competitor, having been selected to ride for Portugal in the Beijing Olympics. Miguel was a member of the Portuguese Equestrian Art School -"Escola" - with some breaks for international projects, until 2001. During this time he had the honour of working with Mestre Dr. Guilherme Borba. Miguel has his own Training Centre near Lisbon, gives clinics worldwide and competes at Grand Prix Internationally.

*SPECIAL OFFER!* from our Founder & President

By Tom Sewell, MA (now available)

An account of Tom and Jennifer’s life behind the Iron Curtain

Sir Rodric Braithwaite GCMG British Ambassador in Moscow, 1988-92, writes “Tom Sewell paints a vivid picture of the grandeur and misery of dealing with the Soviet Union and its servants during the Cold War – the petty but dangerous attentions of the KGB, the poverty of the country, and the open generosity of the people when you were able to worm your way through the barriers with which the state surrounded them.”
