$2 booking fee per transaction applies.
The program is designed to train riders from all disciplines in the correct response action in order to minimize the risk of injuries during a fall or horse and/or rider. The sessions are taught by a gymnastics coach who has been delivering this program to many equestrian groups, including the thoroughbred racing industry for many years.
It involves wearing casual comfortable clothing, jumping on trampolines, tumbling on gym mats, using a foam vaulting box and finally, when skills are in place, "riding" a mechanical horse ( as used by rodeo riders) surrounded by lots of crash mats. "Naughty Ned" is set to buck, spin, rear, to test your learnings.
