Tendring Agility Group
Tendring Agility Group was formed about 20 years ago as an offshoot of Clacton and District Dog Training Club (CDDTC). Some of the members thought it would be fun to try Agility and, after much hammering and sawing, the basic equipment was produced and put into use on Sunday afternoons on a friendly farmer's field. Interest grew and eventually we moved to the Wix Equestrian Centre where we remain to this day.
Wix Equestrian Centre can be found about 400m from Wix crossroads towards Stones Green. We are lucky enough to have an indoor facility so we can practice all year. Classes, which are progressive, are from 7:00pm to 9:00pm every Thursday evening and cater for beginners up to competition standard.
We take part in some fun shows and do a 'have a go' ring which members can take part in. If you are interested please look on our events page or the events board which is displayed ever Thursday at training and take a look through our photos from previous shows.
We have a wide range of dogs and welcome all breeds so please come along, have a look, take part and have fun!
Beginners’ classes start on the first Thursday of every OTHER month and last for 8 weeks. We start with small jumps and a flat dog walk in the first week but your dog will surprise you with how fast they pick it up.
- Starting on smaller jumps on lead to build up confidence
- Clear tunnels to help at the first stages
- and the dogwalk on the ground to teach safely
- Quickly building up to our display standard
- You will be shocked to how quick your dog picks it up!
Please Note! As places in the Beginners Class are limited, you will need to pre book by coming along and registering prior to starting. A small deposit is required to secure a place.
We are located at the Wix Equestrian Centre, please click on our find us page to find our address.
At Wix Equestrian Center we have a large indoor space that is enclosed so your dogs are safe to practice off lead when they are ready to, there is a viewing area where you can bring friends, family and anyone interested in dog agility to come and watch.
