Learn to Ride Programming

About the WELCA Learn to Ride

The WELCA Learn to Ride program provides participants with foundational skills for horseback riding. 

People who complete out Learn to Ride programs get priority choice in other programs such as our Horsemanship or Volunteer Program.

 

We have 3 options for our Learn to Ride programs:

 

1. The Rookie Program runs 4 weeks and offers a taste of the basics.

 

2. The Introductory Program is the perfect starting place for new or summer camp riders.

 

3. The Beginner Program is excellent for those who have taken our Learn to Ride programming before.
