Join the friendly, supportive and fun-loving group of mature adults who ride with me at Poplar Lane Farm. Progress at your own rate on well trained, quiet, show quality horses.
BEGINNER LESSON PROGRAM
All beginner level riders are started on the longe line so I have control of the horse. You will learn how to ask the horse to walk, trot, halt and change from one gait, or pace, to the other. As you gain knowledge and skill you will be turned off the longe line, first at the walk, then at the trot.
Once you are able to safely and confidently groom and tack up your horse, you are required to arrive 30 minutes before the start of your lesson to get your horse ready for your ride. At this time lessons are 45 minutes in length and consist mainly of riding skills. However, arrangements can be made to delve more deeply into ground work and round penning.
GET BACK IN THE SADDLE LESSON PROGRAM
The first lesson is an assessment to determine your level of experience on the ground and under saddle. Lessons will then be tailored to meet your individual needs.
You may elect to include round penning as part of your lesson program. If you've never worked with a horse in the round pen, you're in for a great experience. Round penning will give you valuable insight into equine behaviour and psychology and helps develop a trusting, harmonious relationship between you and your horse.
