Desired Outcome

Be competent at walk, trot, canter, jump.

Confident hacking over multiple terrains types, on roads, in woodlands and open spaces.

Establish enough knowledge and ability to be able to buy and care for your own horse.

Week One

The first week of this package is centred entirely around teaching you the basics. It follows a similar curriculum to the From Scratch course, but much more in depth as we prepare you for week two.

You will learn to walk and trot, and potentially canter depending on your progress. We have had some extraordinary invidiuals in the past who have gone from never sitting on a horse to the basics of jumping by the end of one week. 

The first week also includes a substantial amount of horse care and etiquette. By the end of this week you will be capable of routine daily horse care, safely groom, feed and tack up, identify basic types of tack, identify basic illness and lameness, have an understanding of basic anatomy and gather enough knowledge to stay safe on roads and in open spaces.

Week Two

The second week of this package follows The Microwave bootcamp. Since you are now walking, trotting and trotting without assistance, we can double up the intensity and get you cantering in the arena and out and about in the woods.

This week is far more vigorous than the previous, and you will be feeling the change in your physique and fitness by this point. Muscles you never knew you had will be building up and you will be experiencing an increase in flexibility during this week. Your riding will be centred around improving your newly learned skills, balance and finesse.

During this week we will also focus more on groundwork and excercises for your horse when not in the saddle. We will cover equine injury rehabilitation, fitness programmes, purposeful feed and care routines. We will also teach you about the procedure for buying a horse, what to watch out for and where to look. We will teach you the same about livery yards.

 

By the end of this week you will be very close to having gained enough knowledge and ability to choose, buy, care for a horse, and keep it on a livery yard that is right for you. Your riding skill will be dramatically and visibly improving by the day and you will be confident in the arena and in most hacking situations. You will also have learnt the basics of trick riding.
