SHEA-ROSE FARM SUMMER RIDING PROGRAMS
During the summer months, the regular lesson schedule is suspended due to hot weather and vacation schedules. There will be evening classes offered for adults and interested students. We accept new riders with no previous riding experience in the Standard/Vaulting Clinics and evening lessons.
Standard Clinics: are offered in the mornings to take advantage of the cooler weather and to allow for a more concentrated learning program. Students will spend one full day on Thursday during the week to help prepare for a cookout that evening, at which the evening meal will be cooked over an open fire. The student will be responsible for the care of their horse and tack. Ring riding, trail riding, mounted games, vaulting and ground lessons are included. Groups are limited to 8 riders. No fluff, lots of time in the saddle! Ages 6 and up for vaulting, 7 and up for traditional riding, including adults! Farm/Cook/Ride will be standard morning rides and organic farming/cooking-taught by Carol Land, registered dietician and organic farmer with 50 years of experience.
Vaulting Clinic: Sessions are appropriate for beginning level as well as experienced vaulters preparing for Regionals 6/28-30 at Lexington, VA and Nationals 7/29-8/2 at St Louis. Go to: www.americanvaulting.org for more information about vaulting.
Assistant Instructor Clinic: This is for older, more experienced students who want to assist at our Standard Clinics. Certified Horsemanship Association curriculum is followed, candidates teach lessons, role play students and are evaluated and at the end of the week, there will be a written test.
