Here at Battlefield we teach traditional English Riding lessons and believe that good riding starts with a centered seat and will be the foundation for learning balance and acquiring the strength that riding requires.

We play games to get comfortable on the horse and teach students to move around and develop a range of motion. Do strength exercises such as two-point to teach students to put weight down in their stirrups and lean into their thighs and knees. Once a seat is developed in the first lesson we teach students how to post at a walk and then a trot, and sometimes at a canter.

All students that ride at Battlefield become strong confidant and competent riders who can ride many different levels of horses, not just the typical school horse.

What to wear:
You do not need to make a large investment in riding gear to learn how to ride. All that is required is a pair of jeans, a pair of boots with a heel and a riding helmet. Saddlery Liquidators in Haymarket is offering riding gear packages for Battlefield Park Polo Club and Equestrian Center students. Mention our name and receive 10% off
