Basic horse handling instructions on the routes:

•    When we are with the horse standing on the ground, waiting to mount, we must be careful with the horse's pushes or stomps, avoiding sudden movements and shouts.

•    Go up and down the left side of the horse. We put the left foot in the stirrup, we grab the saddle with both hands and with the right leg we push ourselves up, while the monitor keeps the horse still.

•    We are already on the horse. Take the reins gently, without pulling and never let go, they are like the handlebar of the motorcycle or the steering wheel and brake of the car, with them you will guide your horse.

•    We will be calm, relaxed breathing will not make us nervous. Always think that you are in control, you have the reins to guide it. The horse knows from the first moment that you don't know how to ride, maybe it will test you a little (for example, try to eat in the first moments of the start), but it is a professional and will be guided by you.

·     To ride a horse it is essential to be concentrated, relaxed and keep your head up with your eyes where you want to go, so that our body is placed in a position where the horse has greater freedom of movement and knows what we want to do, not only with the instructions of the reins but also with our weight and our position in the saddle.

•    There are four basic rules for guiding your horse:

      4. Brake the horse: pull both reins at the same time towards the horse's hindquarters, releasing pressure towards the 0_cc7819 _cc78 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_         _cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     time to reply.

•    Always anticipate your horse's movement. If he lowers his head to eat or tries to get out of line, it will be more difficult to correct than if the first moment you notice him starting to lower his head or turn, you give him a touch with your heels and turn the rein in his place. It is very important that you are persistent and do not give up until the horse listens to you. Believe it and have confidence that you will get what you want from the horse. 

•    In the event of an unexpected scare to the horse (because a dog suddenly comes out of the brush, a piece of plastic suddenly shaken by the wind, etc.), calm down and do not scream. Hold on to the saddle and pull the reins back decisively, but without excessive force, to stop him, or grab the short side rein and turn his head to stop him. Never lose your temper, it is the key to achieving the collaboration of your horse.

•    Remember that the monitor that accompanies you is a professional who will always be attentive to the course of the route and will give you adequate instructions in each section and personalized to each horse, since he knows them and knows the character and temperament of each one. For the same reason, do not hesitate to communicate or ask any questions you may have.

•    To reduce risks we will follow the safety rules given by the monitor: we will ride in a row, respecting the pre-established order of the horses and always without shouting or losing the Calm down.

•    Horses are professionals in their work, if we remain attentive and follow the instructor's instructions, we will enjoy the pleasure of riding in a spectacular setting, even never having ridden.
