School Riding Programs

As many students know, there is not always time for other sports or extracurricular activities when you ride horses. Fortunately, many schools are now starting to incorporate horseback riding into their offered activities. Throughout the country various high school riding associations have developed to promote equestrian riding teams and clubs to junior, middle and high schools.

To find out more about these or to learn how to start your own equestrian riding team or club, read our guide to Equestrian Riding Programs—Overview for Middle, Junior High, and High School Students, or click here for a printable version.
