Larch and Kingfishers Classes

Straight Backs please!

In our horse riding lessons, the children have to work really hard on their posture and balance whilst learning to control their horses at the same time! Their efforts are really paying off. We see the benefits of their horse riding lessons in other lessons back at school. Posture and balance is really important for other skills and sports, as well as being able to sit in a chair properly so that they can concentrate on their work.

We were particularly impressed with how straight the children were able to sit in the saddle this week. They also had to stand up in the stirrups and balance whilst holding out one arm AND control their horses – impressive! Have a look at our young riders in action;

    Amazing! How clever you are to do all these things while keeping your balance on horseback.
