PONIES, AN EXCELLENT INFLUENCE FOR CHILDREN!
|The ponies are horses of low height, they are soft and affectionate although they have a great character and strength. There are ideal for the children to begin in the world of the horse riding, since the height of the child is more in agreement to the measurement of the pony That of the horse.|
Children start in the world of riding in a progressive way, between riding games to start riding, box work and a certain discipline. They are the necessary bases for a good learning.
Encouraging respect for nature, teaching values to children such as order, and love for animals, is the goal of the pony club.
Children fill with confidence and satisfaction when they are able to manage such a large animal, mount and care for it and this is the confidence they will transmit in their daily lives.
All beginner riders start their lessons on the rope. It is a private class where the teacher or monitor puts all his attention to the student, working on the pony, to gain balance and achieve a good position.
After the first classes and ensuring that the rider has successfully completed the exercises, we will incorporate the student we call "The batch".
The batch is the group of students who already have a certain autonomy and perform their class as a team. These groups are awarded a pony appropriate to their level of play and height or age.
There are also other activities such as learning the equestrian language workshops, scavenger hunts, games, all related to the world of the horse. They will change groups and ponies as their progress progresses.
FOR THE SMALLEST
Children can start riding from 4 or 5 years. At first, the teacher will walk by his side, in order to gain the necessary confidence. You can then proceed to teach on the rope where you will work position and balance.
In addition, these first classes serve as contact of the child with the animal; It may be that at first the child is afraid of approaching the pony, but very soon this fear disappears, when he checks how meek, sweet and calm these animals are. These first classes serve for both the child and the pony to become familiar with each other.
After a few classes they will find themselves riding alone.
