Practice rides are available to students who have shown they are ready to be responsible riders, and who have taken the time to learn how to groom and saddle their own horse. Practice riders must be approved and should use these rides as a time to work on riding skills outside of class. Pole work and pole pile are permitted during practice rides, just remember all equipment must be returned to its original location at the end of your ride.  Minors must have a parent present!


Supervised practice rides will have a staff member present in the arena to monitor the riders. Supervised practice rides are available to students who can groom and saddle, but may not be ready to ride without a staff member present. The staff will ensure that all riders are maintaining a safe distance and following arena etiquette.  Jump riders will be allowed to jump during supervised practice rides. Please see calendarfor available dates, times and levels.
