TRAINING FOR THE SHOW RING
“Winning is fearlessly and consistently pursuing excellence in every ride.”
— Tonya Johnston
You will be trained in Hunter class, where the focus is on how well you showcase the horse’s movement, style, and manners. Also included is Jumper class training, concentrating on the horse’s athletic abilities. Finally, you will be ready for Equitation class training, which focuses on the rider’s form and technique.
In addition to the skills required to train your horse, you will also receive training on how to properly exhibit. Showing a horse requires precision, discipline, concentration and focus – all while “selling it”. You will learn to have complete command over your horse, all while making it look effortless.
