Lease riders get a weekly private lesson and can join one group class or take a Riders Balance and Stability class weekly. The rider may also have one extra practice ride a week with a half lease or 3 rides to practice a week with a full lease.
Whether you've chosen to begin, English or Western, your riding journey with CCSC will include bareback riding and lessons on the lunge line. Beg riders will work on horsemanship, groundwork, rider exercises, biomechanics of horse and rider, Tacking and untacking, care of equipment and mounted skills. Mounted work will include but not limited to: steering, walking, sitting jog, rising trot, halt, intro to lateral work, arena figures and patterns.
Novice students will continue the trot work and finding the sitting trot and independent seat. Novice students will begin having lessons out on the ranch trails to practice practical skills and begin learning about horse fitness. Canter and lope work will begin on the lunge or in the round pen. Cavaletti's will be introduced. Jumping students will begin work over cross rails and small verticals.
Intermediate students will begin refining the basics into first and second level movements in the arena and begin working the canter out on the hills and trails. Lateral work at all three gaits and will begin riding simple changes. Jumping students will be doing grid and gymnastic work with full courses.
Students can ride a flying change on a trained horse. At this level we encourage students to lease or purchase a horse. Schooling horses are rarely ridden at this level often enough to be in shape for this level of work. In this level riders will continue with Dressage and Reining work in the arena. Outside of the arena we begin distance riding, cross country work and showing*.
