Lessons

A clinic participant learns to do a piaffe .

Lessons are available on Classicus school horses.  The horses at Classicus are all trained to be very light and each one offers a different learning experience. Riders will learn to ride with a light hand and seat.  Only a rider with a good position will get the best results from the horse.  A rider must be supple and one with the horse to achieve independent aids.  His legs must be relaxed with no contraction.  His hands must have a soft connection with the horse, no pulling or continuously taking up the reins.  If the hands become hard or pull, the horse will become stiff and rigid.  In order for the horse to be supple and free of contraction, the rider must be also supple and free of contraction.
