The SUEC meets twice a month in the spring and fall and for a full week in the summer to gain their advanced horsemanship skills. Spring and fall meetings are 2 hours long and the summer meeting is 3 hours long for 5 consecutive days, this allows time for extensive unmounted and mounted practice time. Occasional field trips are scheduled to farms, veterinarian clinics, and horse shows for additional horsemanship experiences.
The Saddle Up! Equestrian Club curriculum is modeled after the knowledge required of participants in the United States Pony Club. Saddle Up!’s PATH International Certified Instructors break down the knowledge set forth by the United States Pony Club to assist riders in learning these horsemanship skills at their own pace. Instruction is enhanced as instructors teach to each rider’s learning style. Goals are set based on the rider’s abilities and area(s) of interest.
If you would like to get your child involved as a rider in the Saddle Up! Equestrian Club, please talk to their current Therapeutic Riding Instructor to find out if they meet the qualifications of the SUEC. If you would like to be involved in the SUEC as a volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Services Director.
