Saddle Club

Our Saddle Club Program is a beginner-friendly program for boys and girls age 7 to 14. Saddle Club is spent in the barn and riding arenas with the horses, ponies and coaches. Students partake in a group riding lesson, accompanied with a hands on theory lesson. The theory component  comprised of horsemanship, stable management, grooming, tacking, basic medical, nutrition. The session is more catered for the beginner rider but if the same group of students sign up for multiple sessions, we can customize the education level. If you have a group of 5 friends we can try ensure it is just your people in your group. This ideal for older age groups.

The goal of our programming is to introduce riders to equestrian safety practices, develop basic riding skills such as balance, control, comfort  and confidence. Our Saddle Club is a hands on program designed to facilitate a safe and fun introduction to the equestrian world. Students can attend  multiple sessions before they want to graduate into our semi-private or private lesson.

**Note for homeschoolers and online educators**

We are looking to establish a mid-day weekly program similar to saddle club that will incorporate aspects of the Ontario school curriculum. We need a commitment of 4 students to register.
