Equestrian Hijabi

For many Muslims, the step to go to a regular riding school is often still very big. The equestrian world is not yet used to seeing “headscarves” and most Muslims, vice versa, are not yet used to entering a classic riding school. To build a bridge between the equestrian world and the Muslims, we also offer lessons in horse habituation and private beginners lessons for women and children.

Private beginner lessons

The lessons are especially for riders without experience. The time is taken to explain and learn everything calmly. Beginner lessons last a total of 60 minutes, of which 30 minutes are driven and are always individual. Beginner lessons are possible from 6 years and are of course also for adult ladies.

Brief description of the course of a beginner lesson:

  • You learn to get the horse out of the meadow and tie it up.
  • You learn how to brush the horse and prepare it for riding.
  • When the horse is ready we get to work. We drive for 30 minutes. You learn to steer, determine the pace, trot, ride figures and work on posture and sitting.
  • After riding, the horse is saddled and brushed.
  • At the end of the hour you bring the horse back to the pasture.
  • In addition to riding and caring, you also learn how to handle the horse and you gradually learn what caring for a horse means.

We always work tailored to the participant.
Treating people and animals with respect is extremely important!
