YOUR FIRST LESSON: WHAT TO EXPECT
Your first lesson will be private, just you and your coach.
The purpose of this lesson is to assess your riding ability and goals.
Your coach will support you every step of the way, from bridling and mounting, right through to the dismount.
Your lesson will start 'on the lunge'. This is to ensure your safety and to help develop your confidence. Only when you are in control and feeling confident, will your coach remove the lunge line and you can start riding independently.
ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS
Our coaches are here to support you in achieving your goals! No matter how big or small the goal, your coach will help pave the way.
Lessons will be conducted in a planned and structured manner. Each lesson will build on the last, with the focus being on correct riding position and execution of movements.
Your progress will be determined only by you and your horse, with new lessons introduced only when you and your horse are truly ready.
