Itinerary for Riding Clinic in Southwestern France

This program runs all year round from Sunday to Sunday.

Our clinic mixes theory lessons and riding lessons:
- Theory lessons are designed to teach most common horse behaviors so that you can get a better understanding of your new four-legged partner.
- Riding lessons focus on teaching how to stay in control of the horse at any pace and individually (without following other riders from the group). 

The clinic will also teach you how to take care of your horse (cleaning, brushing, taking, catching the horse in the paddock...) to reinforce the bond and be able to gain independence. You will be responsible for your horse before and after each riding session.

The program includes 5 days at the riding school or hacking in its close surroundings. Each day, you get two sessions of riding lessons (about 2 hour-long) and about 3 hours of theory lessons (including time to take care of your horse before and after riding lessons).
Your first riding lesson starts with the basics in the arena and ends by a short trail ride in the forest
Then, most lessons take place outdoors in order to help participants be prepared in any situation they may find while hacking.
During the week, we also give one basic jumping lesson: how to approach a jump (in the arena). 
The last riding day, we go on a full day ride to discover the area surrounding the riding center.

By the end of the week, participants of this program are able to canter alone on the beach with a good control of their balance and their horse.
Please note that we do not cover the sitting trot or sitting canter during this week.

In case you want private lessons, the supplement needs to be paid in advance. Keep in mind that the lessons taken in the arena will be private but you will still join the group when going outdoors (different groups are created depending on rider level).
