Course Details

Horses are large animals. If you want to enjoy spending time with them you must first learn how they behave and why. You will have plenty of time to ask questions and repeat basic steps. We will get you started easily and safely so you get a good basis of knowledge to dare the next steps towards a happy relationship with and on a horse.

  • Horse behaviour and why it is so important to know about it
  • Safety around horses
  • Catching, grooming and tacking
  • The rider’s seat and how it impacts your horse
  • Mounting, dismounting and control at walk
  • Riding up and downhill
  • Independent riding
  • appropriate attire for riding (long pants and sturdy, ankle high boots)
  • pen and paper to take notes
  • Water or your preferred non-alcoholic drink to stay hydrated during the day
  • Lunch
  • one instructor per 4 students to ensure maximum personal feedback
  • a handout that summarizes the content of the day
  • helmets 

We require a minimum of 3 participants and take no more than 5
