VEBC Riding Academy
Welcome to our Riding Academy! Our academy provides a unique and enriching experience for students who have a passion for horses and a desire to deepen their equestrian skills. Our program is designed to offer students more than just riding lessons; it offers them an opportunity to develop a deep understanding of horses, their behaviors, and their needs.
One of the key reasons we have established this academy is to give students ample time with the horses. We believe that spending quality time with these magnificent creatures is essential to truly grasp their nature and build a strong bond. By dedicating a concentrated block of time during our sessions, students have the chance to observe, interact, and learn from their equine companions in a meaningful way.
Peer learning plays a vital role in our academy. Students have the opportunity to practice their riding skills alongside their peers, fostering an environment of collaboration and support. Through group activities and exercises, they learn from one another, sharing techniques, insights, and experiences. This peer learning approach not only enhances their riding abilities but also cultivates a sense of camaraderie and teamwork within the academy.
Our program focuses not only on horseback riding skills but also on personal development. Riding horses instills a sense of confidence and resilience in our students. As they face challenges, overcome fears, and achieve milestones, they develop a strong belief in their abilities, which extends beyond the riding arena and into other areas of their lives.
Additionally, our academy fosters lifelong barn friendships. Students not only bond with the horses but also form meaningful connections with their fellow equestrians. The shared passion for horses creates a tight-knit community, where friendships are forged and memories are made. These friendships often extend far beyond the duration of the academy, creating a support network that can last a lifetime.
Responsibility is a fundamental value we instill in our students. Caring for horses requires dedication, commitment, and attentiveness. Through hands-on experiences, students learn about horse care, grooming, and stable management. This cultivates a sense of responsibility towards the well-being of their equine partners, teaching them valuable life skills that extend beyond the academy.
Our academy operates throughout the school year, with sessions held on Saturdays from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM. This scheduling ensures that students can participate without interfering with their regular school curriculum. It also provides a consistent and structured learning environment, allowing students to progress steadily and build upon their knowledge and skills throughout the year. This program is beginner friendly as well, as students are paired and mixed based on ability.
Join our Riding Academy, where horses become teachers, friends become family, and lifelong memories are created. Discover the joy of horsemanship, develop riding skills, and embark on a transformative journey of personal growth.
