First Riding: First Riding starts at 5.5 years of age. You will train the horse on the first three aids.

Before this, the horse is gradually getting used to the weight of the rider on its back (see film: Desensitising to the Weight of the Rider). It is now learning for the first time to take its first steps forward and this is quite exciting for both man and horse. Everything should be logical and gradual. How to react lightly to the leg aids, how to stop and go back with the rein aids. We systematically show the horse the first movements of how to steer with the reins, which we call "first steering". We keep the riding sessions very short (a few minutes) so as not to overload the horse and to keep it willing. We only do this at a walking pace until the horse has found its balance (+/- 10 months). You train your horse and remain patient and positive. The horse is a beginner!
