This program is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Courage: Willingness and ability to face fears and try new things. Tolerance for uncertainty. Social confidence.
  • Independence: Developing a relationship bond and sense of trust between yourself and your horse is truly rewarding. And learning to control and care for an animal much larger than yourself builds confidence and self-assurance.

With proper instruction, being able to ride horses in a safe and controlled fashion is only the start to a lifetime passion. Riding provides excellent health & fitness benefits, promotes confidence and responsibility, and its fun too! We firmly believe that additional time spent grooming, tacking, and bonding with the animal ensures a better, more productive riding experience.

For children, learning to ride independent of a leader requires the ability to focus on instruction while on horseback for a minimum of one hour. Don’t forget we are dealing with a large animal with a mind of its own! For this reason, we follow insurance guidelines that recommend children are turning seven the year they begin riding. Before this age, a simple pony ride with a leader would be more appropriate, which is both safer and more economical.

Whitchurch Equestrian has a wonderful introduction for children and teens (age 7 to 16), to learn the basics of riding and the care of horses in a fun environment.  

Whitchurch Equestrian Riding Lesson Programs operate throughout the entire year, and are specifically designed for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced riders, guiding them through the various levels of riding and horsemanship.
