Beginner and Intermediate Level for students 6 years and up
Older students typically start directly in the Mustangs program since they’re more capable of finding their balance on the horse and they’re generally more capable of processing the trainers' instructions due to their age and level of maturity.
My name is Karoline Reichert, I am the founder and owner of Palina’s Ponies.
My hunsband David and I are originally from Germany and have been around horses our whole lives. We trained and competed at the highest levels in Europe ourselves and more importantly we trained lots of kids and teens from a beginner level all the way up to competing on an international level.
Some of them even became European Champions in a variety of equine disciplines.
The most important thing about building a child's “riding career” is to create a solid foundation. There are so many things to learn and to understand in the equestrian world and it takes a lot of time, patience, stamina and drive.
I wrote a handbook to help you, the parents, understand what we’re doing here at Palina’s Ponies, why we’re doing it and what the results are going to be.
When you are new to an equestrian sport, it's very hard to understand the sport itself and to track the progress of your child. Even if it seems as though your child is doing the same thing in every lesson, that’s far from the truth. Equestrian sport is so complex that it’s very hard to see weekly improvements if you’re not an experienced rider yourself. We kindly ask you to trust us and our team of trainers with developing your child's personal path in the wide field of equestrian sports.
