The Rider Level Testing is based on the Equestrian Canada Learn to Ride Program. This program is for students who wish to learn safe horsemanship skills and practices. The purpose of the program is to produce well-rounded horsemen, who are able to care for and ride their horse in a correct and safe manner. To prepare for the testing students participate in monthly clinics at PHC to ensure that they have the skills needed for their level in both riding and stable management.
This club provides an opportunity for students to further develop their riding skills and horse knowledge, both on and off the horse. Club members will participate in a wide variety of activities including Gymkhana’s, clinics, practice rides, charity events and more.
