Coaching Sessions

Coaching involves developing skills to enable riders to solve their own problems rather than simply developig only specific narrow skills. The initial skills development process involves developing specific skills which will then blend into a rider toolbox which can then be used to grow through personal centred modality. To book onto any of our coaching sessions you will need to use our online Hopoti system. Please use the video below to get your intial set up completed:

Group Coaching Sessions (Term riding)

We offer regular group sessions on a term basis which provides optimal progression to participants. Term riding students commit the full term of sessions. This commitment means they maximises their achievement riding with riders of similar level, goals and experience. Terms are usually between 10-15 weeks duration and will coincide with school terms as much as possible.

Before a space can be offered on our term riding program you need to complete an assessment session. An assessment session lasts for thirty minutes and assists our coaches in finding a group session suitable for your level, goals and experience. Some clients you may need to complete a course of private sessions to bring you up to the level of a group session before we can offer you a space.

To arrange or to enquire about our term riding program or to book an assessment please Contact us. The term riding program is run in accordance with our cancellation policy and term riding terms and conditions.
