News from the yard Natalie Crouch It is a pleasure to work in such a beautiful location within the grounds of the College. The yard has great facilities to offer not just the horses but anyone wishing to visit Lancing Equestrian. during their riding sessions and continuing their development in all areas of equestrianism. The uptake that we have had for our lesson courses and stable management has been brilliant. We have had students of all ages across the year groups and of all different ability levels. All of the pupils have been great to teach and all very enthusiastic about what we can offer them. Across the eight weeks all of the students have shown an improvement in their riding and have gained knowledge on how to handle and behave around horses, along with essentials such as tacking up and untacking before and after their lessons. This is a great way for them to interact with the horses as well as riding. Artie Barney Bud We are looking forward to what the Summer Term will bring us, as we have dressage, show jumping, gymkhana shows planned and much more. I look forward to continuing to work with the pupils of Lancing College 2 Cookie Diesel Nel
