Rookie Riders Program Overview

Rookie Riders is a children’s equestrian LTAD program aimed at children in the Fundamentals (ages 6-9) and Learn to Train (ages 8-12) stages.

 

The program is delivered in 12 lessons, and each lesson is comprised of:

  • a game
  • a set of progressive fundamentals (basic gymnastic) activities, and
  • a variation of the fundamentals activities on a “barrel horse”

 

Each game/gym activity progression is designed to teach an equestrian skill related to balance, co-ordination, flexibility and confidence with activities off the ground.

 

The program is designed to be delivered in two stages – the first teaching the “unmounted” skills, and then ultimately referring kids to an equestrian riding facility where they will learn to apply those skills to horseback riding.

 

Equipment –

 

A full equipment package is available through Ontario Equestrian, and consists of:

  • a Rookie Riders barrel
  • an assembly of legs that attach to and stabilize the barrel off the ground
  • a carpet, saddle pad and surcingle (a strap around the barrel with handles for children to hold when they’re on the barrel)
  • cones, bean bags and a ball for the games, and
  • Posters illustrating the gym movements

 

The training offered, will provide the participants with all of the necessary resource material, including certificates of progress, completion and parent handouts explaining the program.
