Afternoons w Avondale Icelandics
Students ride in a round pen not rectangular arena with owner instructor in the center.
We go on the mini track to practice walking and then Tolting instead of Trot.
An assistant will be on another horse on the ground or to follow on a horse as needed.
Then we take the riding lesson on to the park trails when basics are confirmed.
