Horsemanship

In 1960, when Triple R opened its gates for the first time, horses were an important part of the Ranch's activity plans. We meet adults today who still remember the names of their favorite Triple R horses from when they were kids! Horseback riding is still important year-round here. Triple R's riding program is supervised and taught by well trained, qualified instructors who put safety as priority one. Learning horsemanship in a safe manner is very important to us, a conviction you'll see expressed in everything we do with horses at the Ranch:

  • Experienced professional staff
  • Exceptional well-mannered horses
  • Triple R follows Alpha Omega Horsemanship Certification
  • Riders are encouraged to grow in horsemanship skill and relationship with God
  • Riders learn the importance of safety and control

Policies beginning Fall 2016

Our Spring session of riding lessons is a eight week session and starts April 22nd, continuing through June 17th.  (April 20th - June 15th for Thursday lessons.) We have a couple options available for lessons:

  1. Group lessons for ages 8 and up on Thursday afternoons from 4 pm – 5:30pm.
  2. Group lessons for ages 8 and up on Saturdays. Class time options are 9 am – 10:30 am, 10:30 am – 12 pm, and 1 pm – 2:30 pm. You may request a class time, but the schedule is determined by the number of students registered and the experience level of those students.
  3. Private lessons starting at age 3 and up.   These can be offered on days other than Thursday and Saturday.  Date and time are worked out between you and your instructor.

 

We are making a few changes to our riding program to improve your experience. Our most notable change in policy is that we will now be able to pro-rate the cost of the riding lesson package based on the number of dates the student will be able to attend.  If the student is aware of dates they will be missing and gives notice on the registration form, the cost of the session will be adjusted accordingly. This change in policy is not applicable for simply missing a lesson.  Notice must be given at the time of registration.  This is to accommodate sports and other obligations students often have.   We hope this will help as families are budgeting and scheduling out the school year, and we hope you make riding at Triple R a part of that schedule!

 

Registrations must be received by April 15th.  Registration forms and further information about lesson prices can be found below.

 

 

Lessons

While taking lessons at Triple R Ranch riders will work at their own individual pace, grow in their riding skills and build upon these skills as they complete each stage of our riding program. Always keeping safety in the forefront, the first stage riders will work through is Foundations. Then they will move on through the stages of Principles, Disciplines, Performance and Refinement.
