Adult Dressage Program
Horseback riding is a sport that people of any age can participate in. Our goals are your goals – we strive to create safe environment, while recognizing the abilities in each of our riders – and helping them to realize their full potential in a fun and supportive setting.
Our training program is a progression based on the individual needs of each rider while encouraging confidence and the desire to help individuals reach their personal best in riding.
All incoming students are required to take one private class for the purpose of evaluating their individual riding levels. This approach assists both the student and the instructor in defining goals, providing meaningful lessons and ensuring a safe training environment.
At first you may feel that just learning to stay on and steer the horse is a challenge. When that becomes easy many more learning opportunities present themselves. As you progress with riding and horse ownership you will always have questions and we are here to answer those questions. Even the most experienced equestrian would admit there is always something new to learn.
The rider is really beginning to grasp onto the idea that they are the leader in the relationship with their horse and is beginning to see the results. The rider now can grasp theories and mechanics and begins applying them in order to improved response and relationship with their horse.
The rider has a well- developed sense of balance and timing. She understands sophisticated concepts of horse movement and sound principles of training and can perform the advanced maneuvers building a style of riding and it is very difficult to see the aids given to the horse.
At the Intermediate and Advanced levels, riders might be interested in competing at home, locally or in recognized United States Dressage Federation shows.
