Lessons & Livery

Minette’s Approach to Teaching

“We teach mostly private and semi private riding and groundwork lessons and all our horses are classically trained and professionally schooled. My aim is to help you to understand what effect your style of riding has on the horse’s balance and movement and how by correcting your position, a harmonious partnership can be achieved. Lessons take place in a safe and pleasant environment where every rider enjoys the instructor’s focused attention. We progress with care and always at your pace. The theory of riding is relatively simple but I’ll help you to understand more clearly how to take its principles and put them into practice.”

Groundwork and in-hand lessons

Would you like to learn groundwork inspired by natural horsemanship, or perhaps you would prefer to learn classical in-hand work and long-reining? During these lessons, you will have the opportunity to create a dynamic relationship between you and the horse. Studying the horse when on your feet gives you greater insight of their movement and a deeper understanding of how to ride with more feel and harmony.
