Clinics and Lessons

Riding clinics and lessons are the fastest way to improve your riding skills, your enjoyment in riding and your safety.  Our programs giving horseback riding lessons and clinics have been chosen with great care to offer the best available with top notch instructors in their areas of expertise. These teachers are not just big names, but give students the personal attention they deserve. Everyone can benefit from instruction and the time invested pays huge dividends quickly. The right kind of instruction also leads to a more rewarding relationship with the horse. It is difficult for a rider to fully realize what he or she is doing as well as an outside observer can and a good teacher can quickly identify bad habits which would be hard to detect otherwise.  Videotaped lessons can also help a rider understand what he is doing when he can see himself  from a distance.  From intensive dressage training programs in Spain and Portugal to horse training clinics in Wyoming Equitours offers a great selection of riding vacations that include riding lessons or clinics.
