Our private and small group lessons include a holistic approach to horsemanship and riding skill development. There will be a focus on mastering a strong basic seat and a deep understanding of our natural aids as they are the foundations of how we progress as equestrians. The team at Rise believes that the development of the relationship with the horse and the education of clients on safety and stable management is as essential as riding skill development. All of our clients will come away with a strong understanding of safety, equestrian etiquette, horse psychology and riding skills. Our programs will include a combination of ground work, basic vaulting (improving harmony with the horse and a balanced seat) and riding lessons. Once our clients have a strong foundation, we can tailor their programs towards dressage, hunter/jumper, trail riding or vaulting.
