Lessons

Vector Equestrian offers riding programs that focus on the progressive development of fundamental riding skills following Ontario Equestrian Federation levels. Our experienced coaches teach safety and technique, with an emphasis on creating a fun learning environment for all.

We offer lessons for the beginner child or adult rider up to the experienced rider who is interested in a competitive program.

First Steps Introductory Program

This is a 4-week program that will introduce riders to basic horsemanship including riding, grooming, tacking, untacking and equipment care while stressing the importance of safety around horses.

Each weekly session will be two hours in length and will include a 45-60 minute riding lesson. Instruction on how to prepare for a lesson and properly care for the horse after the ride will also be provided.

Personal assistants are provided for riders in this program so that individual support can be provided in the barn and during the lesson.

Once the 4 sessions are complete, riders have the option of joining our regular lesson program.

WHEN: Sessions begin on the first Friday of each month and run for 4 weeks. Students should arrive at 6:00pm.

WHAT TO BRING: Students should wear sleeved shirts, long pants (jeans are acceptable) and boots with a .5 to 1 inch heel (regular rubber boots are fine). Helmets are provided.
