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”

 

Rookie Riders is an excellent way to develop your lesson program. 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. This program will not only benefit a new equestrian but young equestrians currently in a riding program.

 

The program is designed to be delivered in two stages –  first the “unmounted” skills, followed the “mounted”. Rookie Riders can also be used as complimentary to an existing lesson program.

 

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
  • cones, bean bags and balls
