Students will learn from seasoned performers and trainers on experienced performance horses.
Though seemingly difficult and rare, instructors will go through tricks in a step by step process.
No experience is necessary, just a desire for fun and adventure!
Trick riding and roman riding styles were developed for Russian Cossack battle. Cossacks learned different positions to fight while staying on a runaway horse. Today it is popular in rodeos and circuses.
Here students will walk through the basics and safety procedures as well as building tricks and trick routines throughout the week. At the end of the week students will perform their routines to music for friends and family to watch as they show off their new skills and techniques.
