Both private and group lessons are taught, based on the needs of the participants. These classes currently meet on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday. Each class attempts to encourage communication and confidence, as well as physical benefits such as balance and core strength.
While certain directions like "heels down, toes up" may be given repeatedly, activities vary enough to keep our riders interested and focused. Lesson activities not only teach riding skills, such as balance and reining, but also reinforce everyday skills. For instance, we may ask a student to count rings as s/he removes them from the ring pole, or name the ring's color. Each rider must communicate with the leader and the instructor in order to move forward and to change speeds. Our riding lessons provide children with horsemanship skills as well as reinforcing communication skills and lessons learned elsewhere.
Lessons are always taught by PATH International certified instructors.
