Lessons vary according to the students needs.
A Nervous Adult who used to ride and wants to re-enjoy the experience of interacting with horses
For example a young child who wants to learn to ride;
an intermediate rider who wants to get their young horse started or increase their skill level on their horse or ours.We can help with a horse that has unwanted habits and help you identify whether your horse is in pain or not.
We can also help you find a saddle that fits.
We specialise in
Positive reinforcement versus negative reinforcement (negative reinforcement is the traditional method of training animals but not necessarily the approach a lot of people want to take today)
Beginners and Nervous riders
Horses needing behavioural adjustments for example ones that are difficult to float load, lead, saddle or lunge
Perhaps you would like to learn about utilising positive reinforcement methods such as clicker training or muscle therapy.
