The Riding Lessons at Villa Stabbia.
The aim of all riding here at the centre is to have fun, enjoy the company of the horses and to discover the wonderful world of equitation. There is no timeframe or certain abilities that needs to be learned before the year is over. Nor does one have to ride here regularly - some will only ride when on vacation, some when they have the time and others several times a week.
All lessons will start with an introduction to the horse. This is usually done whilst grooming and saddling, as it allows the rider to get to know the character of the horse and what it likes and don't like.
Since all horse stables have their own routine and ways of doing things, the rider will be introduced to the habits and rules of the Villa Stabbia stable. Likewise, beginners or less experienced riders will be taught how to groom and saddle the horse correctly. During the preparation stage, it is compulsory for all under 18 years old who are handling the horses to wear a helmet.
