Squad Training is offered to children who have been riding for a period of time and they have become competent on the Flat (Dressage) basics and just started Jumping.
The School provides this program for those riders who wish to improve their riding and may go on to lease or purchase their own horse and have an interest in competing in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing.
This program involves Squad Training Days monthly which consist of a lecture topic covering Stable Management or Riding Principles, and a session with our German Qualified Trainer, Marianne Lichtwark. This is a great opportunity for children to get a sound and excellent knowledge of the basics for their riding and training that is unique to Heritage Riding.
The opportunity to be trained by such a highly Qualified Coach, especially to young inexperienced riders, is generally only available in Europe.
Squad Training camps are also offered every school holidays for 5 days of intense coaching in the three disciplines; Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing. This involves riding, lectures, video’s and a competition is held at the end of the week.
The Squad members wear a special uniform and this gives them prestige within the Riding School and team spirit amongst themselves.
