English Learn to Ride Program

The Equestrian Canada Learn to Ride program is a national program based on current standards of riding and the Canadian Long -Term Equestrian Development model. The English Learn to Ride program includes levels 1-10. The purpose of the program is to produce well-rounded horsemen and women, who are able to care for and ride their horses in a correct, safe manner. This program is based on the following manuals that outline the basic horse and stable management knowledge as well as
expected riding skills for each level of certification:

  • Equestrian Canada English Rider Handbooks

  • Stable Management in Canada book

  • Additional resources (such as the Developing Equestrians
    Guidebook)

To prepare for the testing students participate in monthly clinics at PHC to ensure that they have the skills needed for their level in both riding and stable management. Rider Levels are standard across Canada, so once certified a rider can hold their accreditation across the country.

Our rider level prep clinics run through the Fall and Winter months, with testing taking place each Spring. PHC also offers a Specialty Rider Level Testing Camp during Session 9 of Summer camp that offers a crash-course in rider testing theory and riding components. All handouts and information for theory classes will be posted on this page for easy access. If a student should miss a theory clinic, study sessions will be available in the Spring to be used for students to catch up on information they have missed or don’t understand.
