Do I have to Show? No, Horse Shows are not mandatory. You are welcome to just take lessons. Many of our riders love their weekly lessons and do not wish to show. However, we do offer participation in some shows throughout the year for students that wish to be a part of our show team. Horse Shows are a lot of fun and a great way to be rewarded for your improvement as a rider.
Do I have to jump? No, we offer flat work classes for all ages. When you are ready to show you will show in the flat category. If you do not wish to jump please let us know so that we can cater your lesson appropriately. Young riders will not begin to jump until the instructor is confident in their ability and skill level. We do not push students to perform feats they are not ready for. We believe that mastering the basics are the most important part of a riders lesson program.
