We encourage care and compassion for horses, humans, and other animals. We aim to remain mindful of the needs of both horse and rider, so that all activities are safe, kind, positive, and productive.
We aim to create an environment where there is mutual respect between staff, learners, visitors, and equines. Our activities are designed to support members to achieve this aim and to achieve their best. We further encourage teamwork, self-confidence, self-discipline, and lifelong learning through programmes designed to enable the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and the ability to apply these effectively.
We promote a culture where staff and visitors are open, honest and trustworthy. We expect that staff members integrate these values within their teaching and customer service and that they are embraced by riders and visitors.
We aim to provide an inclusive learning and recreational environment regardless of age, race, religion, gender, or ability. This is further supported by encouraging flexible, collaborative, and non-judgmental teaching so that members feel safe whilst developing skills, confidence, and self-esteem. Sensitivity to the cultural and religious needs of others is integral to this.
B1 Child or Adult and B2 Child or Adult
These classes are for adults and children over 8 years old who are new to horse riding. Direct entry to Beginner 1 is possible without an assessment. Entry to Beginner 2 is by assessment or coach recommendation after a lesson.
Riders may be complete beginners on the lead, through to beginners who are riding, stopping and steering, and learning to trot. Riders will also learn how to lead their own horse, moreover; mount to adjust girth and stirrups.
D1 Child or Adult and D2 Child or Adult
Entry to developmental classes is by successful assessment only. Progress between the two levels may be through coach recommendation within or at the end of a term.
Developmental riding lessons help you to become a more independent rider, develop additional skills in walk and trot and learn to canter safely. You will work towards trail riding without a leader and later be able to include some trot work on the trails. D2 riders may also be introduced to jumping.
Skill Development and Competitive
These classes are for experienced and confident riders and entry is by successful completion of an assessment only. There are options to prepare for competition and to try out for one of the ASRS teams. Lessons and training options may include riding skills development, faster paced trail riding, dressage, show jumping, and/or endurance riding. Adults and children may not be separated for some of these sessions; the level and training goal will dictate the groupings.
