For Riders

LESSONS

We offer lessons for all levels, from beginners to professionals, in hand or ridden. From basic groundwork and all levels up to pialffer, pirouette, liberty and connection training or for the big gun jumps of 135cm plus. We have horses to help you reach the level you would like to achieve.

We specialise in solving any problems horse and rider may encounter.

BEGINERS AND AMATEURS

We educate riders on learning on how to sit on the horses in a neutral classical position, to allow for balance and security for the rider on the back of the horse, aiding the horse to be able to carry the weight of the rider in a healthy and safe way.

We also share our knowledge in horse behaviour and biomechanics with the 20 years of experience and continuous learning we have gained under our belts to help you build a healthy and sound relationship with horses.


Our lessons are up to a maximum of two people so we can ensure the best teaching environment and quality learning.

Each student learns to tack up and groom by themselves, and a single lesson starts at 65€ VAT included. We offer the possibility to buy a 10 lesson card, priced at 600€ VAT included.
