Schooling Day – June 2019

Despite the intermittently rainy weather and sloppy footing, it was an educational day for those who braved the elements. Among the participants today were staff members on young/new horses, new hunt riders on experienced hunt horses, event riders, and more!

One of the challenges in preparing to hunt is getting both horse and rider accustomed to varying terrain and conditions and today was certainly a valuable lesson in that regard. It was fun to see both horses and riders gain confidence as the morning progressed.

Quite a few of us also practiced riding at different speeds within a group, changing places (leading vs. following), and leaving/returning to a group of horses, also valuable skills for a hunt horse to have.
