What is the Learn to Ride program?
The Learn to Ride Program is designed by Equestrian Canada and is aimed at individuals who wish to become well-rounded horse people, want to learn more about how to care for and ride their horses in a correct and safe manner and wish to be recognized for doing so at a national level.
The program is available for both English and Western riding disciplines; providing a systematic approach for introducing new riders to equestrian sport.
Organized into levels (English Learn to Ride Levels 1-10, Western Learn to Ride Levels 1-4, and the Western Intermediate Rider Levels) the Learn to Ride Program help to develop practical hands-on stable management and riding skills along with the knowledge that will help ensure riding is a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
*Rider level credential testing available for those who wish to participate at riders cost.
