Here our students start learning how to ride in earnest.

The course covers: horse handling, grooming and tacking, basic riding techniques, riding balance, and riding the three basic gaits: walk, trot and canter.

The initial lessons are held on a lunge line – a very long lead which is used by our experienced instructors to control and direct the horse whilst the beginner rider learns the foundation of riding: balance on horseback. Beginners’ lessons start off with balance and stretching exercises at walk and go all the way up to canter, depending on the student’s physical fitness, coordination and confidence.
