This course offers an introduction to horsemanship and horseback riding. Students will follow the beginner lesson program which includes basic riding goals, horse care and safety. This program was created for those with limited horse experience who wish to broaden their knowledge. Students who feel they have mastered the basics are welcome to contact us and discuss our more advanced lesson programs.
Students will begin by learning how to safely work around equines, followed by how to properly care for and ride their horses. At the end of the course, students will receive a certification stating they have mastered the first level of equestrianism, confirming they are able to safely and competently care for, mount and ride their horses. We offer continuing education lessons to all class graduates.
Participants must not weigh more than 200 lbs. Those who exceed the maximum weight limit may join us for non-mounted lessons only. Students must be 10 years-of-age or older and in good health.
Fee includes two hours of horse-based learning, incorporating both time on the horse and ground lessons. A riding helmet will be provided. Participants must wear closed, hard-soled shoes with a 1 inch heel and long pants.
Participants may purchase the United States Pony Club Manual for an additional $20.00 fee
