Experience the thrill of breaking clays guided by a qualified coach in the beautiful Dorset countryside and enjoy a relaxing overnight stay (dinner and breakfast included) at one of two Epicurean Collection inns nearby.

Make your way to the AA Shooting School, which is tucked away in the sleepy Dorset countryside near Sturminster Newton. Set on a private farm - look out for the big barn from the road - the school is run by qualified coach Norman Fuller. Your one-hour lesson can be tailored to your ability, whether you are a beginner or a more experienced Gun wanting to polish your technique, and can be shared (25 clays each) or taken by one person (50 clays in total). All lessons begin with safety, move on to eye dominance, gun mount and then focus on technique. The traps can simulate crossing, driven, rabbits and loopers.
