Rookie Riders provides an opportunity for children to experience the joy of equestrian sport in a fun-filled program.
The curriculum for Rookie Riders Instructor Training 1 includes options for delivering the program without a horse. It includes:
- Horse inspired activities and games to develop fundamental movement skills and knowledge about how to interact with and move safely around horses
- Ground-based skills that help develop strength, posture and body awareness, and specific movement skills to be able to safely mount and dismount a horse
- A “barrel horse” where skills can be specifically taught and practiced
- An activity bank and sample lesson plan that helps students progress systematically from ground-based skills to mounted skills.
*This course is a prerequisite for Rookie Riders Instructor Training 2, which includes training for mounted skills on a horse.
