“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”
The best way to learn is to do. Because of this, time in the saddle and the horses themselves are the best teachers. Our goal at Léttleiki Icelandics is to facilitate the process of learning to ride making it easier and quicker. We put emphasis on helping the rider recognize when the „feeling is right“ and then help them practice finding that „feeling“ again. We try to approach each student on an individual basis and try to address their particular needs and goals.
