Riding and Lessons
If you are a new client at Coltspring your first lesson will be an Assessment lesson. Horse and Rider are lead to the school and the lesson begins on a lunge line, until the rider is comfortable and confident to proceed further. This assessment also establishes whether a client can go into a group, or if more private tuition is required. Coltspring prefers all riders to be capable of Rising Trot and Canter before riding in a group situation.
At Coltspring we cater for all levels and abilities.
If you have never ridden before or want to progress your skills further, then we can offer a range of lessons to suit you.
If you have some riding experience, but want a more serious understanding, then join our intermediate lessons.
These lessons will help you build on the basic foundation you already have, as well as teach you some of the more advanced techniques such as a controlled canter, and sitting trot without stirrups.
