New venture for me and Aspire Equestrian

Hello All,

I'm delighted to let you all know that Aspire Equestrian is entering a new exciting partnership with the Riding Club London!



WHO THEY ARE?

"The Riding Club London is  a Private Members' Club which provides affordable access to quality horses for riders living in London. Collecting together like-minded, experienced riders in the Capital, we offer far more than pony trails, and specialise in taking enthusiasts to develop their riding at unique equine venues across Europe, whilst offering a buzzing social calendar within the city walls."

WHAT DO THEY DO?

"Whether you prefer to be at the gallop, or at the extended trot, we bring our members access to top quality horses at carefully chosen locations across the UK and the continent. Meanwhile, back in London, the RCL host a variety of social events, ranging from lecture evenings to balls; accessing some of London's most exclusive venues."

I was first approached by one of the founders of the Club at last year's London Horse Network meeting. The Club was on the look out for a coaching structure they could offer to their members.
Several meetings later we agreed all the ins and outs and I will now provide all the willing members with comprehensive Riding Assessments. Click on the image below to have a look at some of the other instructors the Club uses -  there is a super mixture of some really top ones! It feels rather unreal to be listed next to all those great names!


I will be running two types of Assessments for Riding Club London members:

Short Format Assessment (available exclusively for the Club members only)

Two hour session in which the rider will be assessed on basic horse care, tack handling skills and riding skills. The rider will also be videoed during their ridden session for visual feedback.

Upon completing the Assessment session the rider will receive:

1) DVD with video content from the ridden session
2) Written Feedback describing the rider's skills as shown on the day.
The description will also allocate the rider to one of the Academy's Programmes for further understanding of the level the rider is at the time of the assessment  (for example: Rider who is described as confident at Development level will be conversant with majority of the skills listed here: http://www.aspire-equestrian.com/services-training-for-riders-development-skills.php)
3) Short written suggestions for further training i.e. what's best to work on next and what type of lessons/training would aid the improvement of the rider's skills.

Long Format Assessments - Standard Option (which are alike regular Assessment Days already offered via Academy):

Five hours training day normally 11.30am - 5.30pm which includes:
1) Three ridden sessions: flatwork/dressage, jumping/XC or Hack out plus lunge session focused on seat development
2) Lunch break with meal and refreshments included

Likewise, every Academy rider has a discount on Club's Membership. Have a look at some of the events planned for the next few months:


I am hoping to encourage many new riders to train with the Academy and I am looking forward to meeting the Club's members at our clinic in March.
All the best,
Wiola
