At The Equine Club, we recognise there are many riders out there who are riding at a level where they have the ability to compete at equine events, the only barrier being they do not own their own horse for which to do so. This is where The Equine Club has filled a much needed void.
We provide educated, regularly schooled horses that are available for riders to compete as part of The Equine Club Squad team. Teams are made up based on rider ability, school teams, friends who want to ride and compete together and of course from the community as individuals for which we match you to a team that will suit your riding.
Our riders have the opportunity to compete up to a maximum of two competitions a month, this is based on availability of competitions pertaining to the rider's interests and ability.
The Equine Club is about giving riders the opportunity to fulfil their riding dreams, competition aspirations and be able to work towards a sense of accomplishment both individually and as a group.
The benefits of horse riding are numerous. Squad gives individuals:
a sense of achievement, being able to set goals and work towards those goals
the ability to work autonomously and within a group
friendships built with like-minded people who provide support and encouragement to each other
study results showed that children riding horses greatly improved their ability to perform behavioural tasks, leading to better memory, learning and problem solving.
resilience, not everything goes to plan despite all the hard work, and some days are great and other not so
finally, and for parents, you understand this, no screen!
