Teaching one by one
Age: from age 8
Duration: 15 min (incl. Pre-salted horse)

Sitting with the seat at the deepest point in the saddle and having the correct pelvic position will automatically lead to a starting position that will train the rider's balance effectively. The slightest misalignment of the pelvis and disturbance of the horse's balance give the body tensions which in turn disturb the rider's balance.

voltige Classes
Voltige is gymnastics for horses that go longe in trot and canter. You must be a trained rider on horseback and trained in turn or ballet. Strength, agility, balance and coordination are quite demanding.

Voltigør: Mensendieck Physiotherapist and Riding Teacher Sissel T. Falch

It is trained without a helmet in voltaic.

Maximum number of students: 6 pcs.

Price: kr: 1600, - incl. 5 hours of teaching and participation at the summer show

Time: 14.00-15.00

Age down: 10 / 11 years



EKT v / Sissel must have 1-2 parents who assist each training session. Standing horse should be kept and we need help getting riders up on horseback.

Course Content

The Voltigis course is a study of gymnastics on horseback to music. The hour is varied and consists of turning (stretching and strength exercises) on the ground, on standing horse and on moving horse. The horse goes in longe and the students learn the exercises on horseback in steps, trot and canter. In voltaic, you learn to ride horses which is a unique opportunity to train balance, rhythm and movement combined in gymnastic exercises. And most importantly - it's fun!

The class is led by riding instructor and Mensendieck physiotherapist Sissel Thorson Falch.

The course focuses on practicing agility and coordination which means that all students should learn to turn wheels and stand on their heads. We don't expect you to do this when you begin. The pupil will work up the riding feeling by mastering balance and rhythm to the horse.

The Voltige students also prepare for the Christmas show that EKT always organizes in December, where Voltige is a regular feature.

The course is organized according to the requirements and standards Volta has as a professional branch. That is, the exercises are taught systematically according to what the students master, first on the ground, then on a horse standing still and finally moving. We also do this to ensure the quality of workmanship and the safety of the students.
