Riding Lesson Program 2021/22
Safety: Proper footwear, riding helmets, tack and suitable mounts, with lessons being taught in an enclosed ring by experienced qualified coach ensure a high level of safety during the riding lesson. We try to place clients in riding lessons of similar age groups and skills levels.
Getting Started: The number of riding lessons is very dependant upon the confidence, strength and coordination of the rider and how competitive the rider wants to be. Skill development using the three gaits (walk, trot and canter), basic school figures and movements (circles, serpentines, loops, figure-of-eights etc.), trotting poles, gymnastics over fences, variety of jumps, lunge line exercises, depends upon the rider's skill level and interest.
Fun: When riders first venture into the equestrian world, they are looking for enjoyment; whether the rider is a young girl madly in love with horses or an adult looking for an activity for exercise and relaxation. We try to use a variety of exercises, during the riding lessons to ensure the riders want to come back for more!
Skill Development: Each rider progresses at a different rate - it is important to ensure riding lessons challenge the rider to improve, but not so much that the rider is disheartened.
