DUKE

We are delighted to introduce our most ‘bomb-proof’ equine atClassical Riding Academy... ‘Duke’.

 

Not only is he a good height, with good bone standing at 15.2hh, but he is
patient and calm in all three paces which, coupled with our excellent instructors,
provides an unrivalled opportunity to improve your riding performance
in a completely safe environment.
 

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced level rider, using an equine simulator like Duke is an invaluable way of pinpointing asymmetry and working on biomechanical issues that might be holding your riding back. 
 

Improving your posture and position in the saddle without worrying about steering the horse accelerates muscle memory and improves coordination ultimately supporting the achievement of your riding goals.
