We are located in Rättvik and are the facility where you can book private lessons with a lot of time with the horse!
Our training method is called the H3 method , where we look at the horse as a family member and a Teammate
which is allowed to think and react, where you get to learn to understand your horse
and how much you yourself affect your surroundings.
We are also Sweden's Ambassadors in the World Bitless Association!
During the Pandemic, we only have open at our base in Rättvik, Dalarna County.
The facility is classified as Corona-secured outdoor activity, warmly welcome to us!
Sometimes you may need help to move forward in your teamwork with the horse or in your mental training. Sometimes you may also need to change your thinking to improve your results. We have many years of experience in coaching of both horses and riders at all levels of education!
Book us in Ridesum.
We train bitless and with us you have the opportunity to come for private lessons with a lot of time with the horse! You can be a beginner or have previous experience. The horses at the Academy are ridden and driven bitless, but you can of course also come here and learn with your own horse!
Book us in Ridesum.
In summer we organize camps with horse and bow n Rättvik, Dalecarlia. The camps always focus on your relationship with the horse and you can choose different specializations such as Yoga. Here we are a maximum of six participants and always two instructors. It is also possible to rent a horse at the Academy!
This year we have had an extra high pressure on Horseback archery and therefore we are now extending the season with us in Rättvik!
From September 1st to October 31st (with reservation for possible snow) we are open daily for booking Introductory courses,
on the weekends also Half-day courses, Full-day courses and weekend courses!
DO YOU NEED TO HAVE SHOT A BOW?
No! On our introductory courses, you do not need any experience of either archery or riding. We shoot instinctively with so-called equestrian bows and you get a thorough overview of techniques and safety before you get on the horse and try. When you are a totally beginner you only try in walk with the horse.
DO YOU HAVE TO RIDE BITLESS?
When you rent a horse from us, you always ride without a bit, which also means that you get an overview of bitless riding. You do not need to have previous experience of this. When you bring your own horse, you choose the equipment that you are used to and feel safe with for the best possible experience!
DO YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO RIDE?
Not on our Introductory Courses! The horses at the Academy are well-educated and environmentally trained and several of them work with animal-assisted activities. If, on the other hand, you register for a Beginners Camp, it is good that you have riding experience. However, it does not matter if it was a long time since you rode.
CAN YOU TRAIN REGULARLY?
Yes! We have many returning students all over Sweden. You do not have to be interested in competition to become a student at the Academy. We are available for all levels - from horse riding to advanced level competition in several equestrian disciplines, not just Horseback archery!
