The education system on Ekeskogs Riding Academy is structured as step-by-step courses, one piece of the puzzle at the time.This is in our experience the fastest and most effective path to development. But it also has an ethical dimension for the horse: Before we go on top of the horse, it has to be schooled in its body and ability to learn first from the ground. The rider should have developed their coordination and feeling for movement and communication before mounting. We also offer lessons in liberty dressage, which is an education system of its own, first from the ground and later on top of the horse.
Ekeskogs Riding Academy is founded and run by Hanna Engström who has dedicated her life to the art of riding. She is a licenced Bent Branderup® Trainer. We also have other instructors with different specialities. Contact the instructor you are interested in training with to book lessons.
