Classes are include instruction about the horse's nature and forms of communication, handling and saddling the horse.
We recommend taking a series of classes once or twice a week to deepen your knowledge and skill. A major part of learning to ride is developing specialised muscles and confidence.
Classes are offered for riders of all levels. Helmets are provided.
All classes are taught at our ranch in Urubamba.
