Essential Starter Program Education Bundle

Horse RIding Hub Education

Are you serious about learning to ride?

Imagine if you could feel completely secure in the saddle, comfortable, and connected as though riding is a conversation with your horse.

What creates a great ride? Is it your connection to your horse? Your skills in the saddle?
Develop a healthy and trusting relationship with your horse using communication cues your horse understands and accepts.

BALANCE is the key ingredient. For the best start to learning about horses and horse riding, or to become an even better rider – Seek guidance from a beginner education specialist! With guidance from a highly experienced horsewoman (over 45yrs), qualified coach, established horse riding school owner and international author – Debbie Burgermeister.

Purchase of the Horse Riding Hub Education Bundle will help you establish a safer and more enjoyable experience for you and your horse. To help you easily understand the very basics needed in horse care, riding and horse ownership.
