Horse-lovers and equestrian sports fans with no previous experience who would like to have a good time with horses and enjoy nature or those with competitive aspirations are all welcome to join our horse riding course which consists of several levels. At the first level the rider gets familiar with horses, grooming and equestrian equipment. The trainees, who can be between 7 and 77 of age, learn the basics of leisure riding.
For more ambitious riders there are advanced levels of competitive riding, jumping, galloping or harness racing. The riding course takes place in groups or individually and its duration depends on the abilities and the ambition of the rider.
RECREATIONAL RIDING FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS AND THERAPEUTIC RIDING FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
The aim of recreational riding and of the equestrian centre “LIBERTAS” is to encourage children and teenagers to pursue this sort of activity as often as possible. In the nature the horse is man’s noblest companion.
Besides mental and physical abilities equestrian sports develop in children and teenagers self-confidence and responsibility. Through the contact with horses children learn about life and nature and are introduced to one of the most attractive sports. Our centre places great importance on environmental issues and education, healthy and natural living, friendly treatment and contact with animals and preservation of the beauties of nature.
Horses cure and help us. While sitting on a horse, all the movements of the horse are transferred to the rider, particularly to the pelvis, imitating natural walking movements and building up the weak muscular system of a person depending on a wheelchair. Merely keeping oneself in the saddle develops the senses and mobility that are required for the balance of the body.
Riding and the companionship of horses and club members have a beneficial effect on the social and emotional characteristics of an individual by strengthening his self-confidence, self-respect, the feeling of responsibility and social skills.
