Rookie Rider Programs available in Camps and Lessons

  • Rookie Riders is a foundational program designed to introduce children to equestrian sport by teaching them the fundamental movement skills associated with riding. The program focuses on a blend of riding, vaulting and gymnastic skills. The young rider begins with exercises on the ground, then on a barrel horse and graduates to their first riding lesson on a school horse.
