After lunch Larissa will have a clinic in the riding hall about the healthy training of a riding horse. She will talk about important basics of biomechanics and how we can help our horse to build up the right muscles to carry the rider correctly. We will set goals for the riding lessons the next days and get to know the horses.

After breakfast we go and meet up with the horses at the farm. We prepare the horses to go for a 2 hour riding tour out in nature, around the country side, next to the river Rangá. We leave the horses at a neighbour farm and drive back to Hekluhestar farm for a traditional lunch at the farm. After lunch we drive to Kjarr horses stable. There everyone will have a private riding lesson with Larissa on a horse that we picked according to each riders goals. Every lesson will be individually planned after your wishes. The ones not riding are welcome to watch the lessons and ask questions so that we can create a positive and diverse learning experience.
