Learn to ride on the Internet

On these webpages, we present the most important topics related to »learning to ride« in two groups. The best way to learn to ride is, of course, to be taught personally and there is no way to learn to ride simply on the Internet and without a real horse, but these pages should still offer good clues.

Riding Lessons and Follow-Up

Anyone who wants to learn to ride should do so in a riding school. The individual equestrian associations in the respective countries, i.e. the FN in Germany, the FENA in Austria, and the FNCH in Switzerland, are not only good indicators for the regulations in equestrian sport but also have certified riding instructors. You should contact them if you want to have professional riding lessons.

The idea behind these pages, on which we promote the "learn to ride on the Internet" is not to replace the real riding instructor or even the real horse with which you learn as a training partner, it is thought that we can understand it in individual lessons and Repeat what you learn personally and locally at the good riding school. This website is intended to help when you have finished riding lessons, to review the most important findings and learning content, and to be able to deal with individual topics in a little more depth. Not only because you may not have understood it immediately in class, but because more detailed explanations that can be used in front of the computer may help to understand certain things even better.

Much of what the riding instructor says in riding lessons are not so easy to understand for the person sitting in the saddle. In some riding schools, a mirror wall is installed in the Reitilch lateral, which helps to quickly check, for example, your own sitting posture. But if the riding instructor is standing in the middle of the lunge during the lesson, the riding student has no chance to follow the riding instructor's gaze and thus see what the riding instructor is currently seeing.

Riding Lessons in Basic Training

In basic training, we deal with the most important basic topics when learning to ride. You learn something about horses, about breeds and also about the behavior of a horse. How do you approach a horse and how does the pairing between rider and horse work best. What steps and speeds are there and what are the basic terms when riding, so what terms stand for what in the cavalry. This is always an advantage in riding lessons because many riding instructors teach very different riding students at very different levels.

Next Step: Universal Training

After basic training, our path continues virtually into universal training. In this area, we already deal with equestrian sports, with special features, with the different requirements in dressage and jumping, but also with special knowledge for riders. In universal training, we not only explain more about sports and horse breeds but also some legal issues and some things that are also exciting for riding instructors. We also explain the background knowledge about the profession of a riding instructor, the training of a riding instructor, and the legal issues in this area.
