Riding Levels

Riding has its own language, as has many sports. It is important to learn the phrases given by the instructors, so in group lessons as you progress, everyone should understand what they are supposed to do and don’t do. Not to worry though, it will all become clear as you start to learn and relax on the horse. A relaxed rider learns a lot quicker; and we cater for the complete beginner of any age, up to the more experienced showjumping level.

Please call the office for more information on the best way forward for you.
The Beginner
The beginner rider will start off slowly, learning the basics of steering, walking, trotting and cantering. The rider will improve position and balance at all three speeds.
