Dressage, Jumping & Cross Country
Whether you're not completely sure what it means or you're on your way to Prix St. George, Sam can help. Starting with raising awareness in correct body position and effective usage of your aid. Sam's classically styled approach will help improve the balance, self carraige and engagement in your horse. Teaching both you and your horse to focus on accurate, intentional movement, your horse will learn to relax his topline, while offering his mental focus and immediate responsive to your aids. The experience will build an enjoyable partnership as you progress through the higher levels.
If you're already competing you will appreciate the attention to detail Sam offers to help you learn to refine your time, feel and finesse that will create a quality, fluid and rhythmic ride.
TEC has two full-size sand grass dressage courts.
Our fully featured jump course will invite you to improve and gain experience. Learn how to ride accurate approaches, bending lines, adjust your horse's stride for long and short distances, land on the correct lead and address the technical details to become a winner in the ring. By addressing clear communication between horse and rider on the flat first, the rest will "jump" into place. With the rider thinking and making decisions throughout the course, they will be taking their horse for a rewarding ride rather than just hanging on and "surviving the ride."
Cross country can be an exhilarating jumping experience (for us anyway)! We have trails for beginners that range from no jumps to those with logs to tables, a water complex and coops. A cross country training course is in progress. From beginner riders learning about hill climbs and descents and traveling through both a wooded setting and open fields the woods to more advanced experienced riders, The Equestrian Center has something to offer everyone.
Tired of going round and round? Looking for the opportunity to leg up your horse? Our half mile long conditioning track is made of wood chips spread 10-12' wide. It offers an easy dip and short uphill that encourages a variety of striding with long stretches for a fun gallop! Completely surrounded by fencing, you'll enjoy a safe ride with an open feel.
