LEARN TO RIDE:
Our lesson program follows the EQUINE CANADA LEARN TO RIDE ENGLISH PROGRAM.
Riders are enrolled in a weekly lesson program on our well schooled horses. They may start in a private lesson and move to a group lesson when they are deemed ready by their instructor. Riders learn to groom and tack their horses appropriately for their lesson. In their lessons, they work with horses in flat work, work over ground poles and eventually over jumps. The focus of lessons is on proper position, correct use of aids, and safe handling and riding practises. Cidermill offers their students regular opportunities to for Rider Level Testing under EQUINE CANADA’S LEARN TO RIDE PROGRAM

LEARN TO COMPETE:
In addition to learning to ride, Cidermill hosts many in house and open schooling shows where our students learn how to compete in the equestrian disciplines of dressage, hunter, jumper, combined training and eventing in a supportive, learning environment. The focus of our competition program is is first and foremost, protecting the welfare of your equine partner, sportsmanship, team fellowship and learning to rules of the game.
We offer divisions for children and adults from the most beginning levels to advanced. Our students participate first in home shows. Once they have some basic show experience they may travel to local schooling shows in dressage, hunter and jumper disciplines. Students leasing or owning their own mounts may travel to compete in the SWO Combined Training Association Series, and throughout the province to compete in Ontario Horse Trials, Dressage Shows. Some may wish to participate in Provincial/National and International Hunter/Jumper Shows.
