SPECIALIST TRAINING COURSES
This course is designed to instruct pupils in horse riding principles. The integrated training allows development both in the sporting arena and competition, as well as in artistic horse riding.
The School takes pride in its wide experience in teaching horse riding and in its privileged facilities. It has a didactic team with an exceptional track record in competition, as well as Purebred Spanish horses and sporting horses for practising various disciplines.
This course is oriented towards training the student in carriage techniques, both in competitive sport and recreation.
The specific technical training elements are complemented by aspects of hypology, morphology and functionality in the carriage horse, as well as history, etc. At the end of the course, the pupil will also have acquired skills in equipment maintenance, knowledge of theoretical and practical horse riding and how to take care of and maintain the horse and stables.
This training speciality provides pupils with the knowledge they need to make and repair different saddlery items for horse riding and maintaining carriages. It also enables them to learn about the tools and materials, and to apply specific techniques and procedures.
A combination of both theory and practical knowledge is offered at the Royal School’s saddlery workshop. Information about saddlery techniques, hypology and the history of the horse and carriage is provided.
