Itinerary for Jump & Trail in the Landes




Riding lessons are taught by a certified instructor with over 40 years of experience and numerous results in competition with his students at a national level.
Riding groups are kept small (between 1 and 4 riders).

Things to keep in mind:
- A rider needs to be in balance in order to clearly communicate with the horse.
- There is no good Jumping horse without good basic training.
- There is no good Jumping rider without understanding of the locomotion and respect of the horse.
- One of the most important aspect of this clinic is navigating between the jumps rather than jumping. 

During your stay, you will ride from Monday to Saturday, starting with lessons in the morning (usually from 9 or 10am to noon) and going on trail rides in the afternoon (usually from 4 to 6 or 7pm). It is also possible to exchange the afternoon trail rides against more work in the arena.



Lessons' objectives:
1) Improving the rider's jumping position at the 3 basic gaits on flat ground, approaching and passing over jumps.
2) Looking for harmony between horse and rider: learning to work on the control of the horse balance, better managing changes of direction, change of pace and change of speed and in accordance with the different types of jumps.
3) Better approaching the jumps using various trajectories and working on reception on the right foot (change of foot work).
4) Jumping a course of 8 to 10 jumps (less than 1 meter high) by the end of the training program.



Trail rides (in the forest or by the beach) provide a great way to relax and allow for some exercises on the rider’s position. During these outings we can also put in practice exercises to better control the pace and direction while jumping small natural fences (also coping with changing grounds).

It is possible to arrange private and/or more advanced jumping lessons (jumps higher than 1 meter) for an extra fee. For the advanced jumping lessons, you will first need to be evaluated by an instructor so the fee is paid locally (about 150 euros for the full 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).
