THE MICROWAVE

Lola Cross Crountry.jpg

Similar to a microwave heating up food very quickly, on this course you will be learning as much as possible in a short space of time. This course is ideal for those who own or would like to own a horse, or simply wish to quickly boost their skill.

 

The course contains daily lessons and hacks, and the aim of this course is to fill you with knowledge of horses in general and training exercises, as well as care and management.

Progress Expectation

The expectation of progress is based on 7 days for relatively fit and healthy individuals. Our aim is for the rider to gain a considerable amount of knowledge and ability during the time spent with us. We will cover everything from feed ratios to vetting procedures to teaching tricks, all the while your riding will be improving with each lesson.

Progress is specific to each individual, and confidence is as, if not more, important than capability. Although we have had many individuals who have achieved all of the above, that does not mean that you have to. We are always ready to alter the course programme to suit the rider to ensure that you achieve as much as your body will allow.
