If this is your first contact with a horse, we want to make it the most positive and unique experience for you.
You will learn about horses, their personalities, and how to get along with them. Then, you will get to spend close time with one horse – brushing, making a connection, saddling, and riding in the arena.
The whole program is led by an instructor who decides on the steps to be followed and tailors it to your comfort level.
The program is divided into three 15-minute parts: 1. tour, orientation, and introduction to the horse, 2. equipment placement and ground contact, and 3. riding the horse in the arena.
Tour, orientation & introduction to a horse: You will have an explanation about the stable and its main activities, about the horses, their personalities, and their special stories. We will introduce you to a particular horse and guide you in establishing a relationship with it through petting, brushing, and talking to it. This will help you feel comfortable and calm around the horse, too.
Preparing the horse for riding: Part of the experience will be brushing the horse, getting to know the equipment, placing the equipment on the horse, leading the horse in the arena, communicating with the horse on the ground, and guiding the horse through gestures.
Riding in the arena: Lastly, you will learn and practice how to get on and off the horse without assistance. You will then get to ride the horse for a few minutes around the arena, led by the instructor.
