Rider Level Classes

Offered after school.  Riders are grouped according to ability, i.e. Levels 1 and 2 ride together, Levels 3 and 4 ride together, etc.  A Level 1 rider cannot ride in a Level 4 class, but a Level 4 rider can ride in a Level 1 class to make up a lesson.

Rider Level Theory Classes

For those wishing to test their rider levels, we will offer a theory class the second Friday of each month from 1:30 to 3:30.  This is an indoor, unmounted lesson and will cover the theory needed for each rider level.  This lesson is $35.00 payable at the time of the lesson.

Rider Level Testing

Testing for Equine Canada Rider Levels will be offered in Nov/Dec and again in the Spring.  We will not allow a rider to test unless we are quite certain that they are capable of passing.  Testing and test registration fees apply.

Competitions

We offer in-house shows for those who are in the P'tit Trot and Rider Level 1.  Riders may be invited to compete in outside shows depending on their instructor's assessment of their readiness to do so.
