Find out your riding ability
Non rider = someone who has not been on a horse or has been riding once or twice. Non riders generally want to try something new and maybe nervous at first.
Beginner rider = someone who is comfortable in the saddle & can stay on a reliable well school horse. They can post to the trot (go up and down) and may have cantered a few times. Beginners generally ride once or twice a year on holiday with their partner!
Novice rider = someone who is comfortable in the saddle & enjoys a reliable well-schooled horse. They generally ride at a riding school once or twice a month, or like to ride a friend’s horses on the farm. They can post to trot comfortably and enjoy a nice controlled canter.
Intermediate rider = someone who rides regularly and enjoys a forward going, well- schooled horse. They may or may not be a little nervous for the first little bit while they get to know their horse. They can control their horse independently and are confident trotting and in controlled canters.
Advanced Rider = someone who is comfortable on most horses in most situations. They ride regularly and may or may not have their own horse.
