At Pinetrees we enjoy helping riders of all levels to improve their skills
By gaining a balanced and classical seat, flowing with the horse´s movement, we start to feel in harmony with our horse and move as one body. Correct breathing in the rider encourages relaxation in both horse and rider. Our confidence grows.....
For the more advanced riders, we have a lovely Iberian mare, Electra, with a quality dressage saddle that helps you feel a shoulder-in or a leg yield...
Prices include riding equipment, insurance, any assistance, and IVA @ 23%
