Parallel Paper Session
Horseback riding is a leisure time activity with 2-3 riding teachers at each riding school and about 500 riding schools, in a population of 9 million people. The Swedish riding school system is unique with a common and national education for riding teachers as well as the same education system for all riding schools. Therefore it is of interest to communicate our experiences in this area. The overall aim of this project is to study riding teachers’ pedagogical practice by describing riding lessons, with special interest in the communication between the riding teacher and the pupil regarding the feeling of riding.
Engeström has explored a model for the structure of learning activity out of Vygotskij’s and Leontiev’s theories of activity. His model consists of six interrelated "knots". The activity system is continuously active through contradictions between the knots, “knotworking”. These contradictions can occur on four different levels. By studying them we can arrive at an understanding of the structure of an activity system, e.g. a session of riding instruction.
