So you and your friends already have most of the basics down. You know how to approach a horse, understand how to get the horse to walk, stop and have firmly grasped the rising trot. Now is the perfect opportunity to assemble your crew and take a group session. Sydney Horse is the home to some of the most innovative group horse riding lessons in Sydney, and we’ve assembled this handy guide to introduce you to the concept!
The Basics On Group Lessons
The most noticeable feature is that the lessons involve several students as opposed to just one. Our group horse riding lessons at Sydney Horse generally involve groups of two, three or four people. Your immediate thoughts might be that you’ll get less personal time in a group setting, but the many benefits of riding in a group can outweigh this.
First off, the very act of being in a group, especially a group of our own choosing, feeds one of our most innate human desires. Learning in a group setting with friends increases your enjoyment of the class, which can help you retain more of what you’ve learned. When learning in a group, there are many enjoyable learning games an instructor can employ to help you drill skills while having a blast with your buddies. These games can be done during individual lessons, certainly, but are taken to a whole new level once you are competing with your friends. That level of challenge can even push us to do a little better: how many times have you been determined to improve simply to outclass one of your mates?
You can pick up additional information from your peers, both by them telling you things directly, and by watching and learning from their successes (and mistakes) while you take a break and let your horse rest. This last part is very crucial, as many folks are visual learners, and seeing what someone else is doing right/wrong can often increase our understanding of a topic far greater than a dry lecture ever could.
There are also the economic benefits of riding as a group. You can carpool to lessons and lesson costs are lower when you ride in a group.
