The nature of a horse...
These lessons are more involved than just riding. We believe that in order to be safe around horses it is very important to understand the "nature of a horse". Lessons start with working side by side with the horses learning about their nature, how to approach, halter and lead them. Once mounted, students will learn the Secure Seat method of riding. This works on having a balanced seat which leaves the riders hands and legs free to communicate with the horse. Lesson topics will also include learning about daily horse care, diet, teeth floating, hoof trimming and much more.
Our main focus is western based riding and each semester we offer a gymkhana (timed, speed-based events, ie: barrel racing, pole bending, etc.) for ribbons and trophies to allow our students to showcase their skills.
**Riders taking lessons must also have a TRAK membership. TRAK is a nonprofit organization and the tax-deductible memberships help to sustain us, and provide families with additional discounts and benefits.
*Riders must be at least 8 years old, per our insurance requirements*
Our riding instructors are accomplished riders, barrel racers, and equine safety experts with a gift for teaching.
TRAK is an proud to be a riding facility accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA), a nationally-recognized credential in equine safety, teaching and horsemanship. We have CHA-certified instructors on staff.

"We love this place. We need to get back there. My daughter absolutely loves going there. She is autistic and the staff there always makes it a great time when she is there. She loves playing with the pigs and the donkeys. Next goal is to do the horses. Thank you TRAK for having a place for us to enjoy the animals and have therapy at the same time. K.R., Tucson."
