Beginner - For the true beginner. In this class you will learn how to halter, lead, groom and tack a horse, knot typing and safety awareness. While mounted you will learn how to walk and trot independently in an arena with others and steer a horse through an obstacle course. Balance is a crucial component learned at this stage.
Beginner/Intermediate -Beyond the true beginner skills. Our class advances the skills such as stirrup and girth adjustments, balance, steering/control, coordination, problem solving and organization.
Skills at the trot such as 2-point position, circles, serpentines and figure 8's become a focus. A student may spend as many sessions as necessary at this level to become competent before going on to the intermediate level.
Intermediate - Has mastered the beginner/intermediate skills. This class will add skills such as bending exercises for the horse, lateral movements, different lengths of stride and pace, and how to get the horse "on the bit". This will be coordinated with learning the basics of jumping class, dressage or western reining.
Advanced - Our
advanced class is for refinement and polish in jumping,
dressage, eventing and western reining. This course will be a
collaboration between the rider and the instructor to determine
the specific content.
All classes have a set curriculum. Riders will need to show proficiency in order to advance to the next class. Due to the importance of understanding and practicing the basics, many individuals may need to repeat a level until they are comfortable with the skills they have acquired.
