Lesson Options

As a complete beginner, I start off with the riders on the equisimulator to teach the riding position and give the rider a chance to feel the balance and learn basic aiding before putting them on the live version!  This gives a real foundation and confidence to the rider when they transfer onto the horse.

If this is a first lesson at HTE and it is on our horses, I do an initial assessment lesson on the simulator first.  This is like having a lunge/classroom lesson as a reminder for the balance, seat and position whilst it also allows me to then offer the most suitable mount.

To book with your own horse, simply message via our facebook page, text me or call to book a private lesson.  If it is on one of our horses and we have not met before then follow the return to riding info.
