How I teach
I believe kids/ adults should learn how to ride by using their natural balance. So therefore the kids /adults learn to ride only on bareback pads without Saddle or Stirrups / No bridle or reins Learning to use their natural balance
They will learn how to make the pony go, turn and stop without any hands at walk and trot.
Once this is achieved then they will get saddle once they are happy with this the stirrups arrive then once balanced finally the bridle with reins. (Some may go on to rope halter first)
Before they start to ride they need to learn how to catch , Tie up , brush , get pony ready to ride first this is just as important as riding .
