Riders are then matched to horses and we start with formations and drill riding, learning to ride with the reins in one hand and moving on to riding with various props such as swords, Shields flags and restricted vision work.
We include a small Cossack Trick Riding session on the day working on a wooden horse first before transfering what you have learnt to actual horses and adding some movement in
Being fairly fit and flexible will help for this section of the day.

Hi Karl and Zana,
" Just emailing to say what an amazing time I had on Tuesday at the Stunt Riding Day!
The whole day was a truly magical experience – set in absolutely stunning surroundings, riding on beautiful, well-trained, well-presented horses, friendly staff and the instruction was second to none. I felt that it was great value for money as the day was jam-packed with exciting stunts. Thank you so much for a brilliant day!
Hoping to see you all again in the future :)
Thanks again "
BRITISH STUNT REGISTER HORSE TEST TRAINING SESSIONS
Training for the British Stunt Register horse test?
We are a licensed and insured riding facility using well trained Spanish performance and Friesian horses as used in the film and T.V industry.
We can offer affordable, ongoing private or semi private lessons on a casual flexible basis.
We have helped many people through the test and are experienced in this area and have indeed passed this test ourselves so understand what is required and how we can help you!
£70.00 per hr session.
Please note: We do not teach people to ride from scratch. There are plenty of good local riding schools to learn your basic horse skills. This is due to only owning performance horses that we perform on ourselves.
