❓Do I need to have my own horse?
No! This programme can help you whether you’re lucky enough to own a horse, borrow a friend’s horse, or ride at a riding school.
❓How much time will I have to devote to the programme?
The more time you spend doing the work, the better your chances of reaching your goals.
❓Isn’t this the same as riding lessons?
No, there are no riding lessons included in this programme. The 1-1 sessions are via FaceTime, Skype or telephone, and are your opportunity to create a strategy that you can implement to achieve your goals.
❓When will the 1-1 calls be?
It will be different for everyone, and we can agree a convenient time at the very start.
❓I’m not a competition rider, surely this doesn’t apply to me?
Goals do not have to be all about competition. It might be that you want to be able to hack out on your own with confidence. You might want to improve your position & application of aids in the saddle. Perhaps you want to pass a particular BHS exam. Maybe you would like to build your skills around a course of jumps. There are countless goals that riders can have; it’s certainly not just about competing.
❓I’m a real novice, how does this programme apply to me?
Congratulations! You’re at an ideal point to start setting yourself some targets! Start as you mean to go on…
❓What happens if my horse goes lame or if I can’t ride for some reason e.g. an injury?
Horses will be horses, and I know better than most how often they can get injured! However, there are plenty of things you can do to develop your riding in this scenario – you can work on your physical fitness, mindset and even get some training on other horses. If you are not able to ride your horse due to a new lameness, disease or disorder of any kind within the 1st month if the programme, you’ll be entitled to a 50% refund of the cost. If your horse is unable to be ridden for any of the reasons mentioned above during the 2nd or 3rd months, then you will not be entitled to a refund.
While I genuinely hope you stay fit & healthy, sometimes life happens. If you get injured or suffer with a new significant health issue or injury which prevents you from riding as normal prior to the end of the 1st month if the programme, you’ll be entitled to a 50% refund of the cost. If you are injured in the 2nd or 3rd months of the programme, then you will not be entitled to a refund.
