Sun Dance Ranch - Riding Lessons and training

The Sun Dance Ranch is a real ranch at the foot of the mountains and so close to the river Klarälven.
You can come the Sun Dance Ranch for riding lessons or trail rides in the natural western style on our brave western horses. We also pay attention to grooming and saddling. We teach from beginner to amateur level. We have some nice trained western horses (Quarters, Paints and other breeds). Our horses can, however, not make sliding stops and spins.

Each horse has its own original American well-fitting western saddle. All our horses are ridden on a bitless sidepull or bosal. All horses also go barefoot (without horse shoes).

The riding lesson
We think it's important that everyone 's going to get his own horse, brushing and saddling himself (of course we help where needed). But by doing so you are already busy with your horse, you get contact immediately and are already busy for a moment. Moreover, it is not a bike or something that you takes out the shed, use and ' throw' back when you're done.

We start the riding lesson with the basic instructions for western riding. Learn to steer with weight, legs and neck reining in circles and figure eights. Later on you learn to ride with one hand. Regularly we put on a trail pattern. What we also like to teach to everyone is some basic horsemanship. So that you are aware of what you are saying to your horse with your body language. Very interesting!

We often close the (child) riding lessons with gymnastics on the horse or horse soccer. Good for balance and confidence in the horse. But later it is also useful during the rides in the woods. By the way: young and old think gym on the horseback is great!

Would you prefer private lessons at one of our horses or on your own horse to train individually on certain techniques, you can also contact us.

We have plenty of caps on loan here. Kids and beginners are obliged to wear a cap anyway. But everyone rides at your own risk anyway!
