Riding with the Avondale Icelandics
We open things up on the mini track to practice riding in longer straight lines and to tolt.
Students ride in a round not rectangular arena with an owner instructor in the center.
Then we take the riding lesson out on to the park trails when riding basics are confirmed.
An assistant will be on another horse in front to follow or on the ground as needed.
