Horsemanship and Riding Lessons September 2022 - June 2023

CREATING SPACE- There's room for everyone!--- At Clip Clop, we love riders! And we ensure that every rider has a spot! Therefore, when a class is full, we create another class! We will work with everyone to ensure the most convenient time and day is available to you. And! We ask you to let us know if you have bendy, flexible schedule, so we can let our parents with less flexibility know that you are able to switch out of one spot into another to accommodate them. It's how we do things at Clip Clop- working together to ride together!
Learn to Ride 1 (2022-23)
This class is for those newcomers, newbies and the just-started-loving-horses group. Come join this class if you have not haltered, caught, groomed, mounted/dismounted, and tacked up your own horse (even if you have ridden before) as these skills are vital in building a solid foundation in horsemanship.
Learn to Ride 2 (2022-23)
This level is for horse lovers who have graduated through the LTR 1 skills of haltering, leading, catching, grooming, tacking up, mounting/dismounting, and riding without a LA at the walk and trot, but still require the assistance of a LA/Coach for learning to canter.
Learn to Ride 3 & Growth Track (2022-23)
Learn to Ride 3: This level is for those riders who have successfully acquired and exhibit the skills of LTR 2, and in addition can catch and prepare their horse for the riding class without the assistance of an LA (Learning Assistant), and are confident at the walk, trot, and canter or are ready to canter unassisted.

Growth Track: This level is for riders who can prepare the horse for the Riding Lesson, ride all three paces, untack, groom, and care for their horse unassisted and are ready to learn about lateral movements, ground work, and are advancing towards transitioning from Clip Clop horses in to leasing or purchasing a horse in order to commit to and learn the intermediate skills of horsemanship and ride a minimum of 3 times per week.
