Birtwick Park Stables Riding Academy for Advanced Riders?
This program is designed for students who already know the basics of horse care. These students should be able to tack up their horse correctly and with no assistance. The advanced rider program focuses on the rider’s development and the development of their horse. We will build on the foundation you already have and improve upon your skills. This is for riders looking to improve not only their own riding but the movement of their horse as well. Each student will have a customized lesson plan based on their equine goals. Whether your goals are to show, to safely trail ride or get fit for your horse, we have a program for you.
These lessons are only offered as Private and Semi-Private lessons.
