Group size: 4-5 riders per session, any more and we'll split into separate groups for two sessons. (meaning rotate)

What to expect:
(based on past classes)

First lesson: How to mount and dismount a horse, technical knowledge of saddling a horse and the saddle's components, controlling the movement of the horse (left, right, going forward, stop, slow). Walking the horse and practising.
Second lesson: Walking and trotting (rising trot).
Third: rising trot.
Fourth: Rising trot (yes it's quite a challenge!)

Everyone's progression varies as some people may take more time to grasp the techniques, so some people may still be at certain level.

When you would like to start the lesson:

Deposit: S$250 paid upon confirmation of lesson, rest RM 175 to be paid on first lesson lesson day.Deposit will be forfeited should you not be able to attend. **
Conversion rate: SGD 1 to RM 2.50 

** We implemented this rule to encourage people to commit to their RVSP. We always book 2-4 weeks in advance to ensure that you can schedule your other plans smoothly and we hope for a reciprocal cooperation from fellow riders. Because if you cancel your appointment, it deprives another rider (not only limited to our group) of booking a slot and it also means opportunity cost for our instructor since someone else can take the slot. And it also reflects badly on our group if the number of attendees keep changing.  We hope everyone can help us by adhering to our weekly appointment!
