Take Back The Reins - 2012 Course Released

Posted: 01/02/2012

Take Back the Reins (TBTR) is the exciting initiative - supported by HOOF and Sport England - launched in 2011 to encourage new, 'returner' and existing adult riders to enjoy a unique combination of equestrian instruction and mentoring.

We are pleased to announce details of the TBTR new courses for 2012. Start dates are prospective but we are ready for you to Take Back the Reins as soon as you are! All you need to do to get started is call 0208 300 3947 or email with your availability.

Your TBTR course will begin with a free 90 minute group induction to assess and discuss your personal riding aspirations. You might want to achieve a good rising trot or ride out confidently on a sunny day with friends. Everyone will have unique goals. After your induction, you are then ready to enjoy a six week course of weekly 90 minute sessions. Each session is balanced between 2/3 group riding time and 1/3 mentoring, which will be over a complimentary refreshment and snack/cake with your fellow riders.

The idea of TBTR is to help you get the most out the time you spend with us. Not only do you have practical riding and horsemastership, you also have the chance to ask questions about your lesson or equestrianism generally, address any worries, as well as to socialise, make new friends and share your experience. The total cost for the course is £150 which equates to just £16.66 per hour. Excellent value! Once you have completed your course, your Instructor will be able to guide you with regard to your further progress.

Following the initial 2011 ‘pilot’ courses we received great feedback from TBTR riders. So we look forward to hearing from you and helping you to get started on your own TBTR career.
