I teach a balanced seat of riding following classical principles. Riders are started on the lunge to develop balance, muscle memory, suppleness, and confidence. Riders will be put on the lunge whenever it is nessecarry after the first year. Lessons are progressive, at the rider's rate of development.
Jumping lessons are offered, focussing on correctness of position.
The horse's welfare is important to the lesson so lessons will be adjusted according to the horse if nesscary.
School horses are available for students to use.
Care or the horse: grooming, tacking up, cooling out, after lesson care, sweeping, picking up, is part of the lesson.
Students will learn ground work, leading lessons, lungeing, long reining, double lunge, setting up jumping obstacles, course design, psychology of the horse, etc in order to become a knowledgible horseman.
Students will be expected to do reading and research, and keep notes from their lessons.
