Pony Gang Educational Concept

We offer a membership for riding instructors to a large selection of educational material for their active riding lessons and especially for their theory lessons. 

 

We also offer a membership to parents that want to educate their kids about horseback riding, horses, their care and history. 

 

All material contains years of research. All Graphics used in our material are drawn by a talented artist for us. 

Why is our program important for a Riding Instructor?

Good teaching is caught between the fun it should provide for the students (joy in learning), the motivation that the students have and which should be maintained, and the effectiveness that the instructor wants, i.e. the imparting of knowledge and skills.

 

Joy of learning, motivation, and growth in learning are mutually dependent: 

- Those who are motivated learn more and develop a willingness to learn 

- Those who enoy learning remain motivated and learn more

- Those who learn a lot stay motivated and enjoy learning 

 

We want to provide trainers and riding instructors with great lessons plans in order to be able to design a fun theory lessons in combination with written study material for the cognitive assurance of what has been learned.  

 

A theory lesson that is only lectured by a trainer or riding intructor does not reach most of the students because it is not fun and with this it affects the motivation to learn in the long run and most of the time when the lesson is over, the facts are usually quickly forgotten. 

 

Our lessons plans are also so structured that the learning situations are arranged in such a way tht the students can move arround in a variety of ways. This is not only useful because more and more students enter our riding schools nowadays who have little motor development or are overweight. Rather, it also means that learning content can be better memorized when it takes place in motion.

 

The interplay of riding lesson and theory lessons creates the prerquisite for students to become real "horse people". Sadly nowadays, not every child is in close contact with the animal world or nature. Things that used to be taken for granted by the majority of children now often have to be learned first: 

 

"Horses and ponies have different needs than in the world of computer-animated series and films" -  this is what our new generation of riding students has to learn and understand 

 

A future generation of real horse people with a lot of horse feel - that is what we wish for and why we have developed our learning material.
