The riding group

LARS has its very own riding group held at Lund Civil Riding society (LCR), in which only LARS members are allowed to ride in. The lesson is discounted compared to the regular riding groups held at LCR, a huge bonus for us students! There are only 8 spots available each time and the cost for riding in the riding group is 200 SEK (Swedish crowns). The riding group is held on Fridays, 4 AM (assembly 3.15 AM) and you pay by card once you arrive. To be able to ride in the group you have to become a member in LCR, read more about becoming a member under the tab “become a member”.

 

How do I sign up?

You register (one lesson at a time) from week to week and the ones who register first will be given the opportunity to ride in the riding group.

  • The registration for the week’s riding lesson opens Monday evening 21.00.
  • To register you will have to fill in a formula, which is sent out in connection with the riding group e-mail.
  • The registration is binding.

What previous knowledge do I have to have?

To be able to ride in the riding group you will have to be capable to ride the horse in all three gaits. This corresponds to at least “red level” at LCR, although we are training moments all the way up to “black level” (Read more at LCR’s website, here).

 

Equipment

  • Your own helmet.
  • Clothes suitable for riding, no hoodies allowed.
  • Shoes with a heel (jodhpurs) and short chaps, alternatively riding boots.
  • LCR recommends everybody to ride with a whip, spurs are only allowed to ride with after approval from the riding instructor.

Rules and routines

For our own safety it is important to follow the rules and routines set on LCR. Before you ride in the riding group you ought to read through the ”rules and routines”, read them regularly in case something has changed. You can also read LCR’s “safety and riding arena rules”.

 

The planned term

The theme for the lesson is the same two weeks in a row, where the first lesson will have a review about what will be practiced during the lesson. Following lesson will not have any review and you are supposed to be prepared, either by reading theory or simply by already having the knowledge. If you feel uncertain regarding this, we suggest that you attend the first lesson where a review will be given (link to the planned term).
