Introduction to Classical Riding and Training

Classical Equitation?? Enlightened Equitation!!

'Oh thats not for me, it's must be much too hard', but that is where you are wrong! True French Classical training is far more suited to get the best out of the average, less talented horse, provided that the rider is prepared to improve their seat and refine their aids.

Directions

 

From the M5, take the A38 towards Plymouth (A38 is a continuation of the M5) to Buckfastleigh - around 20miles on from Exeter. Turn left to Totnes at the Buckfastleigh exit. Follow the signs to Totnes - about five miles - and keep right at the traffic lights as you enter the town. Turn right, onto the A381 towards Dartmouth/Kingsbridge. Go on up the hill, across another set of traffic lights, and carry on for about a mile and a half. The hill levels out eventually and the road dips down again. In the dip, you will see some white lines, indicating a turning to the right, signposted to Harberton. Turn right and go to the end of the road to a T junction and turn left into the village.

Carry on the same road out of the village, up a hill, down into a steep valley, over a little stone bridge, up yet another hill, to a crossroads. This is signposted left to Harbertonford. Turn left there, and we are the last farm on the left hand side. You will pass a pink cottage on your left on a bend, then a barn conversion, then our farm buildings along side the lane. The house is just beyond the farm buildings, but please do not drive down into the house car parking as it is already full of our own vehicles!! There is plenty of parking space alongside the farm buildings at the side of the lane, so just pull up there.

NB PLEASE BRING RIDING KIT IE JODHS AND BOOTS, NO HAT NEEDED FOR WORK ON THE SIMULATORS BUT IS REQUIRED ON THE EE RIDING FOUNDATION COURSE.
