Santa Barbara Equestrian Academy
Introduction to Horseback Riding 


Perfect for beginning riders of any age.  Introduction class will teach hands on safety around horses both on the ground and while mounted.  We have excellent school horses to patiently teach students how to catch, lead, groom, saddle, bridle and ride with confidence.

The introductory class will develop riders ability to walk and trot independently working on steering and stopping effectively.  

Once the basics of walk, trot and steering are covered the riders will be ready to move into the intermediate group to further their horsemanship skills.
