Are You Ready to Take the Next Step to Become a Trick Rider?
As you heard in the video, trick riding is a highly specialized form of stunt riding that requires physical skill, a well-trained equine, and specialized equipment. It can be quite dangerous, especially when you omit one or more of the aforementioned requirements!
For example, it is not advised to trick ride on a horse that has not been trained by a trick riding professional, nor is it wise to outfit your regular saddle with trick riding straps. There are books and videos that promote self-teaching, but trustworthy trick riding professionals will always advise newcomers to seek in-person training or supervision.
Because of the level of risk involved, it is best to have a professional trick rider supervising you and your horse.
We offer clinics and lessons around our performance schedule. We do our best to keep our website and social media updated, and we'd love to see and meet you at an upcoming performance and clinic!
