Horseback Riding Lessons in Parker, Colorado

EquesTraining Lessons

At Stellar, we take the time to teach the true skills of horsemanship to each and every student! Our horseback riding programs are taught to the high standards of the United States Pony Clubs, with an emphasis on safety. Students begin learning how to groom and “tack up” from the very first lesson. Programs include English, Western and Vaulting disciplines.

Among the horseback riding activities included are: games, trail riding, dressage and jumping. Pony Club membership, along with opportunity to compete and participate in special events, is open to all interested students.

English Horseback Riding Lessons

All good and safe horseback riding begins with a solid basic foundation of skills, in every discipline. We carefully monitor the individual student’s progress while introducing different activities designed to interest and challenge the rider at appropriate levels. As skills increase, student’s may wish to explore a certain style of riding. Popular English riding disciplines taught at Stellar include hunterseat, jumping, and dressage.

After the student acquires the solid basics necessary for safety and success in all types of riding, they may choose to specialize. The opportunity to test learned skills by participating in horse shows and special events is an option for interested students.

Western Horseback Riding Lessons

Western riding began as a strictly utilitarian activity for the working cowboy that has evolved into a recreational sport. We teach the correct seat and “savvy” through fun activities that call for working world skills, including obstacle courses, games, trail riding, and patterns (including western dressage). The western rider learns adaptability to a variety of terrain and circumstances and sincere appreciation for an apparently “easy” way to ride.

Western riders share the exact same basic foundation of solid, safe, and effective equestrian skills as do riders in our exceptional English program. The opportunity to participate in horse shows and special events is an option for interested students.

Vaulting Lessons

Vaulting is the perfect way to begin riding or to improve riding abilities for any age and level of student. Vaulting can be considered the perfect crossover equestrian discipline, because vaulting teaches control of the body through special gymnastics training and exercises, necessary to all safe, successful riding.

Through vaulting, riders learn focus, balance, timing, rhythm, strength, and suppleness, and how to apply these to control a horse’s direction, speed, and ability. It’s a fun and social group activity, especially; its action-oriented approach appeals to both girls and boys. Vaulting competitions and demonstrations are also an option for interested students.

Please Note

In all programs, all students learn how to groom a horse, how to handle the horse and equipment(“tacking up”) and are responsible for helping put the horse away at the end of the lesson. Developing a caring partnership with the horse is character-building for the student and improves the riding/vaulting relationship with their horse.

For regular program students who want a more complete equestrian education, we suggest that they join the Stellar Pony Club group. For details on the United States Pony Clubs, of which Stellar is a member, please go to: ponyclub.org. For information on how to join the Stellar Pony Club, contact Star Hughes, SPCRC Center Admistrator, directly. You do not need to own a horse to belong and participate in Stellar pc activities.
