Equestrian Canada Rider Level Program

Take part in the national standard for English Riding education & horsemanship

The Equestrian Canada “Learn to Ride” program, or Rider Levels, provides the national standard for English riding education and horsemanship.

The Rider Level program takes place over 2 weeks; during this time students participate in mounted riding lessons, practical stable management lessons, and a mock evaluation to prepare them for the Equine Canada testing.

Tests include an oral, written and mounted component at the end of the second week. Riders are rewarded with certificates of achievement for each level (1-10) that is completed.

This program is recommended for students in the riding school curriculum who are able to walk, trot, and canter with confidence on a variety of horses. Participants must also be a member of Ontario Equestrian to participate.
