Forward Riding School specializes in teaching beginner riders how to ride and more experienced riders how to hone their skills to become better riders. We start with teaching the basics of grooming, horse care and riding in the safety of an arena. Many new riders participate in the P’Tit Trot Program.
P’tit Trot is an educational program for children who are fascinated with horses and wish to take care of them and learn the basics of English riding. The P’tit Trot materials are fully illustrated with colorful drawings and humorous notes that help the child discover the ABCs of horse behavior, care, terms, and the basics of riding in a safe environment. The program is $20+HST and includes a text book, coloring book and 4 certificates (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) The program is facilitated during lessons.
New riders start with private lessons. Riders have the option to move to a group lesson once they are able to groom and tack their horse, walk, trot and steer independently in the arena.
