Browsing Beginner Riders

We define a beginner rider as, “A rider who has limited experience, is unable to post the trot and does not canter.”

A riding vacation as a beginner is a wonderful way to be immersed in the sport to quickly improve your confidence. Our instructional programs are the best fit for beginner riders, as you will have the opportunity to learn solid foundations under experienced and knowledgeable coaches. Take a look at our clinics in Texas and Wyoming, or consider traveling abroad to Castle Leslie in Ireland or Epona in Spain. Spending a week with consistent instruction and being surrounded by horses will do wonders for you riding ability and enjoyment.
