There is absolutely LOADS to choose from but please read the schedule carefully and speak to your Instructor or the office to check what is suitable for your level. If in doubt, ask first because there will be plenty that will be right for you.
Also, always find out if there is any preparation required for badge sessions and remember to come along in comfy riding gear with your hat. Even if you are not riding. You may need to wear it for handling activities. If it’s hot, please still have correct riding gear - arms covered & gloves. And remember your sunscreen!
