    Get Ready to Ride

    This eight week learn to ride a horse course will introduce you to the basic skills you'll need to ride a horse safely. You can't learn to ride from a website, book or video. The best way to learn is from a competent coach. But this learn to ride course will help you understand what you'll be learning once you're on a horse. You'll learn about safely leading your horse, how to saddle and bridle, sitting correctly in a saddle, walking, trotting or jogging, cantering or loping, turning and halting, and riding safely in a arena, ring or on trail.
