Beyond Riding courses for ALL levels 

Riding Fundamentals

Take our foundation course on riding fundamentals and the basic of creating a great riding horse. This course is suitable for all level riders as it introduces our philosophy on riding and coaching. Look after your horse and the rest will look after itself. 

Preliminary Dressage

Preliminary is the basis for all your horse’s future trust and respect for you. Take your time, because at this level competitions are solely used to give you an idea of where your horse’s basic training needs to improve . Prelim’ is not about big scores and winning , take care of your horse, take care of yourself and success will follow. 

Elementary Dressage

Elementary confirms that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and having achieved the thrust required in Novice, now accepts more weight on the hindquarters (collection); moves with an uphill tendency, especially in the medium paces; and is reliably on the bit, can work with the leg yield and shoulder-in in trot, show you how to do simple changes (canter-walk-canter), collected trot and canter, 10m canter circles and rein back just to name a few.

Novice Dressage

By now your horse has learned the basic tools and skills, and will be a little older and stronger.  This course covers all the movements required at the Novice Dressage level including how to ride volte, canter loops, the 15m canter circle, lengthening trot and canter, and leg yielding.
