Course M

Spanish and Horseriding


The Spanish element of this course is exactly the same as Course A, with two grammar classes and two conversation classes daily. You will have four hours of horseriding per week. Spanish classes are in the morning, horseriding in the afternoon. The lessons are held at a campo which is an hour bus ride from the school.  You will be given a ride to the campo, and take a bus back to Montevideo (approximately 65 pesos).The rides take place at a ranch about one hour from Montevideo and offer the opportunity to experience the country's natural landscape. Lessons are one-to-one and the teacher is an experienced rider and riding instructor. Complete beginners are welcome and a suitably gentle horse will be selected. Experienced riders will be able to develop their skills under the guidance of the instructor.  In the case of bad weather, classes will be cancelled and, where possible, rescheduled for another day. You should wear comfortable clothes.

What can I expect to learn?

Beginners can expect to learn  the principles of riding, how to mount and dismount safely, how to guide the horse to walk, trot, stop and turn.  The instructor will also brief you on posture, safety precautions, and basic care of horses and stables.  Those with some experience will be able to improve their technique, learn new skills such as riding at a gallop, or you can simply ride for fun and enjoy the beautiful landscape.
