FEBRUARY 2020 THE RIDER /29 Ontario Equestrian Rookie Riders Program Rookie Riders is a program to introduce children


who have never ridden before to experience the joy of equestrian sport in a dynamic, fun-filled way.


This national program teaches


activities and skills that are funda- mental to success in horseback-rid- ing, such as balance, core and leg strength, and mental focus. Through the use of a “barrel horse” (a spe- cially designed barrel to mimic the shape of a horse) as well as gym- nastic activities, Rookie Riders in- troduces children to riding skills, horses and horsemanship. It pro- vides physical, mental and emo- tional engagement, while building the movement skills characterized within the FUNdamental stage of long-term athlete development. It is a core skill building program that benefits all riding disciplines, and is the first of a series of new initiatives being launched by Equestrian Canada to revamp Canada’s athlete progression model. Rookie Riders was launched


in the York Region District School Board this fall, giving teachers ac-


cess to new resources and opportu- nities outside of the normal curricu- lum for physical education classes. Rookie Riders in-class resources in- clude the “barrel horse”, activities for kids to develop balance, core strength and mental focus, as well as teaching fun information about horses. In 2019, 16,275 participants


went through the Rookie Rider pro- gram. Already in 2020, Ontario Equestrian has put 2 schools through the program, reaching 654 children. Based on schools booked to run the program in 2020, we are expecting to reach 4,000 kids by the end of school year in June 2020. If you are interested in learn-


ing more about this incredible pro- gram, would like to be trained to run it, purchase it or include it in a school board near you, please con- tact
