Enhancing quality of life through horsemanship

Silver Saddles

Silver Saddles is a program for able bodied riders that are 55+ years old.  Classes are kept small and focus on building riding basics, teaches the fundamentals of horses and their behavior, mounting, dismounting, tacking, the proper position in the saddle, reining, how to walk and trot and all at a slower pace than you’d find in a traditional riding school setting.   Classes will also incorporate basic ground training to create and build the bond between rider and horse.

You do not need to have prior experience with horses to join this class.

Horseback riding helps improve posture, balance and flexibility.  It also provides exercise that increases muscle tone and stamina.
