Rider Training

Available in three levels to cater for different quantities of experience and confidence.

 

We keep group sizes small, a maximum of 4 students to a coach, and ensure that all those participating are of a similar level.  By doing this we can tailor the content and guidance to the individuals, making the day the most relevant and the most fun! 

 

All our rider training is carried out on private land in order to maximise safety and ensure a suitable variety of terrain. Our rider training is conducted by ACU approved instructors who are also First Aid qualified. 

 

Please see typical content for the three levels below:
