Suggestions for Non Ridden Activities for Riding Schools and Riding Clubs

There is so much we can enjoy with our equines beyond riding. These activities have many benefits to both horse and human.

These include:-

  • Enhancing and strengthening the partnership bond and connection.
  • Building confidence and self-esteem.
  • Great for improving physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
  • A greater understanding and appreciation of equines.
  • Enriching equines lives.
  • Teaching and learning opportunities for a whole horse approach.

Before you get started please ensure:-

  • Your insurance covers you to offer non ridden activities.
  • You talk to your staff. Check out who is qualified and passionate about non ridden activities as they will be able to pull together a programme of activities. If you haven’t a qualified professional on your team you may have to think about the skills your team have, and possible staff development and training.
  • You link up with professionals in your area who provide non ridden services and work together in partnership to develop non ridden activities. If you are looking for businesses that are non ridden equine friendly to link up with please click here.
