Learning to Ride in Balance

Kids learning to ride in balance at Windrock Farm on a hack with Cari and Lauren leading the kids on Mr. T and Goldie.   The rider is in control, however, if there is any sudden movement of the horse, we have control of the bridle with a neck rope to prevent any mishaps.  It is critical to instill confidence in the rider from the very beginning of lessons.

The ultimate goal is for the horse and rider to be molded to each other.  Together they form a finely balanced whole, a living work of art, which is beautiful and graceful, and which works with the precision of a clock.
