RIDING CAMERAS-WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOSE?

Pssst ... I got some gossip for You guys ....

Lasse is thinking about buying a tracking camera before summer courses start this year!

It would be pretty cool to be able and film all the training in high quality. 

The question is though...: which one should we chose?


On the one hand there´s Pixios tracking camera that follows every movement by tracking a bracelet that the rider wears. That actually does sound very reliable and should guarantee that all the important parts during a training will be recorded.


On the other hand there´s Pivos camera that simply tracks any movement in the arena.


Pixios is quite a bit more expensive but the higher price might very well be worth it...


If You have any experience with these two cameras please let us know what You think on Lasses Hästtjänsters Facebook page.


FINALLY! NOW YOU CAN SECURE YOUR SPOT IN THIS YEARS SUMEMR CAMP!

In midst of all the snow, I will let you know that soon the wait is over and when the green grass an clover have made their come back, we will get ready our horses and tack!

RIDING LESSONS FOR KIDS

Is Your child interested in horses and would he or she like to learn how to ride?


You´re welcome to come and try my riding lessons for children on our ranch right outside Kalix! 


There´s no membership requirement - You pay for each lesson separately. Because of the corona-situation right now I only have one student at a time. This also gives me the opportunity to focus completely on Your childs progress throughout the whole lesson.

You pay for 45 minutes of which 20 minutes will be used to groom the horse, learn how to properly put on all the tack such as bridle and saddle - the remaining 25 minutes we will be riding.

I plan each lesson acoording to Your child´s experience and progress and we will focus a lot on seat and balancetraining, trust and confidence in the horse and getting up and off the horse, how to steer the horse correctly, slow down, stop etc.


If Your child would like to take regular weekly lessons we will implement shorter theory lessons throught the training where the student can learn facts about horses, how horses act and think, horse care (such as taking care of the hooves, the coat, feeding etc)


Janina, the instructor, and our lesson horse "Princess" (who is a sweet little Icelandic horse) are looking forward to meeting You!

Course schedule:

We start with a theory lesson after dinner where questions will be answered. We will learn about correct positioning and some useful info on how a cow works/moves.

After the theory lesson we will be going out to introduce the horses to cattle out on the field.

Saturday morning up until lunch we will ride 2 hours with 4 riders and focus will be on following the cow and fidning the right positions. Saturday afternoon we will do the same for 4 hours and 4 riders at a time. 

We are also going to start working in an A-pen, a first step towards Cutting training.

Sunday morning we saddle the horses och start working on Team Sorting. 2 riders will be working the cows for 3 to 15 minutes at a time, then we do a switch. After approximately 2 hours we will have a break and a snack/cool drinks before we proceed with the lessons for 2 more hours until lunch. 

While we eat lunch we´re going to have another 30 minutes of theory where questions can be asked, progress will be discussed and we will learn new techniques that we later on can implement in the training. 

Sunday afternoon we will saddle up our horses again and keep working on Team Sorting.


BECOME A REAL COWBOY/COWGIRL!

INSTRUCTION

FILMS

The world around us is changing right now and with those changes we find new possibilities to develop in all kinds of areas.


So we are planning on making and publishing a series of instruction films in the near future. 

These series of films will cover topics such as foal training, natural horsemanship excercises, trailer loading tips, tips for preparing for competitions, balance training and excercises to strenghten the bond between You and Your horse.


What should I with a horse that doesn´t want to be caught in the pasture? Why does my horse paw when tied? What should I do with a horse that´s hard to lead?

All of these questions - and many more - will be answered in these films with detailed step by step descriptions that will lead You and Your horse to success in no time.

Keep an eye on our "News & Events" page for info on when and how the films will be published and how You can get access to them. You might just find the missing piece of the puzzle You were looking for!


ONLINE COACHING

While presenting the new instruction films we are currently working on we will soon also be able to offer online coaching.


- This is a personalized training plan where Lasse after an initial evaluation and consultation will find out which areas You and Your horse can work on and how You can move forward in Your training to reach Your full potential. 


YAAAY! OUR COW-COURSES ARE MAKING A COME BACK!

After a (way too long) break in 2020 we can now confirm that we will be continuing our cow-courses this year at Gransätra Ranch!
