Horseback riding for silver level students of the Duke of Edinburgh program 

The silver level students of the Duke of Edinburgh program at SEK-Ciudalcampo  participated in a horseback riding organized by the La Aldea Ecuestre Equestrian Club.

This experience allowed students to interact with nature in a completely new way. Not only is horseback riding a challenging physical activity, but it also  an opportunity to learn about animal care and the responsibility that comes with it. 

 The La Aldea Ecuestre Equestrian Club, famous for its horseback riding program, gave students  a safe and educational introduction to the sport. They leared more about horses, how to care for them and, most importantly, how to ride them safely. 

Additionally, the horseback riding tour offered students a new perspective of the local landscape and was an opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and create  lifetime memories.

The Duke of Edinburgh programme, also known by as DofE, is an extracurricular program aimed at young people between 14 and 24 years old. This program offers young people the opportunity to experience a change in their lives, discover their talent and reveal all their potential to solve problems, communicate, work as a team and develop resilience to adverse circumstances. 

The program consists of three progressive levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) in which they must overcome, in a specific time, a series of sections or categories with activities selected by themselves. Each level is differentiated by the minimum time required to complete it, the minimum age at which it can be completed and the challenge it represents for the young person. 

Program activities include skill development, community service, physical recreation, and an adventure expedition. The objective is to provide young people with a space for skills advquisitions and development, which will help them in their future activities and personal relationships.
