The Horse Experience
Recommended for beginners of all ages.
Connect with horses by being around them, touching them and talking with them.
We will walk among the horses in their pastures, free horses in a herd.
You will then be given a horse to care for, feed and brush. You will learn to handle and walk with your horse.
After ground instructions you will improve your balance and learn our riding techniques. First bareback in the training ring and, if time allows, in the saddle by yourself around the warm up track under the supervision of Samuel and his team.
1200 pesos per person.
Connected Riding Lessons
Lessons will be adapted to your level.
Connected riding is the ability to adjust your body to the rhythm of the horse.
The objective is for you to learn to communicate with horses naturally, to establish a collaborative relationship with them to enhance your riding experience.
To establish this natural communication it is important to:
• Understand the horse
• Gain its trust and respect
• Understand the most appropriate technique to reach each horse
• Be conscious of your body language
• Learn to regulate your energy with your breathing
• Knowing the most advantageous position for riding
Stephanie will share with you her skills in horse communication and riding method.
