Ready 2 Ride Program

The Complete Horse Experience

Ready 2 Ride is all about developing a relationship with your equine partner. Each lesson will progress every week to improve the students balance, strength, and coordination, by using fun and engaging activities on horseback.  Earthbound instructors and horses provide a safe learning environment for riders to improve their previous skill level, by incorporating new learning activities. Each student will have the same horse every week to further develop their confidence and horsemanship skills, and feel comfortable with every new challenge.

Our READY 2 RIDE Program consists of 6 consecutive lessons. See details below:
