CHILDREN INITIATION CLASSES

Does your child not stop talking about horses? Do you think it could help to be in a rural environment? The initiation classes for children that we offer in our equestrian club in Vilanova start from the age of 7. Horse riding is a sport that not only offers physical benefits but also gives you fundamental values: respect for animals, contact with nature, self-control, self-esteem, empathy and companionship. A million adventures and wonderful experiences await you with your new companions.

OUR VALUES

RESPECT FOR ANIMALS

Respect and love for animals is the basic pillar of our school. Knowing how to take care of them and interact with them is essential to be able to enjoy their company and sport.

POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT

Positive reinforcement helps our students improve their self-esteem and confidence, while staying motivated to evolve in their learning.

THEORETICAL LEARNING

Adapting to each age and level we promote a global education. We complement the practical classes with management and theory, which allow us to understand the concepts from the beginning of the training to the most advanced and specialized levels.

WHY ROSPER?

Rosper was born in 1999 as a result of the family’s illusion to create quality facilities in a special environment where we can share our passion for horses. We work to spread the benefits of the connection between animals and people of all ages, and we love to teach classes in which students enjoy learning. In our equestrian club in Vilanova we have the best team to train young and old.

We are a Riding School approved by the Catalan Horse Riding Federation that is committed to the quality of teaching and respect for students and animals through a theoretical-practical approach and positive reinforcement at all levels of riding.

“Family atmosphere and professionalism in an idyllic setting”

WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN CLASSES?

The Initiation School goes from Galope 1 to Galope 4.

They will evolve in their coordination and agility when walking, trotting and cantering, and they will be able to communicate with them in a faster and more precise way.

At the end of the cycle, you will be able to do short jumping courses at a height of 0.60m to 0.80m.

We also work off the track, with small cross and Trec exercises.

We take advantage of some classes to go out into the field and learn how horses respond and react outside the facilities.

Not everything is riding, the theoretical and driving classes allow us to understand the why of many things!

WHAT ARE THE CLASSES LIKE?

HORSE OR PONY?

To advance autonomously, animals adapted to their capacities are needed. In the initiation classes for children of our equestrian club in Vilanova we work with ponies of different heights and from the age of 12 we introduce the horses. Age is only approximate and depends on each case.

CLEANING AND PREPARATION

The classes are 1 hour long and in the first sessions we teach how to relate and prepare your pony. When you gain confidence you can come earlier to enjoy their care and spend more time riding. Younger children may need your help … teamwork!

RIDING IN THE ARENA

In the arena we will start learning dynamically to direct our pony and accompany him in the 3 gaits. As we progress, we will complicate the exercises to achieve more and more confidence, agility and precision.

UNTACKING AND CLEANING

When we finish riding, we will unpack and leave everything in order in the storage room. Depending on the weather, we will brush or shower our horse, to leave it clean and ready to return to its paddock. A grazing stop along the way is always welcome.
