Trick Riding Lessons

From clinics to demos, our trick riding education program is helping to grow the sport of trick riding

World-Class Instruction

From Professional Trick Riders

Whether you’re new to trick riding or have been in it for a while, you’re welcome in our trick riding lessons program!

Trick riding is best learned in person from trained professionals. Sure, you can watch a YouTube video or read a book, but every professional trick rider will tell you that the best learning comes from working one-on-one with a seasoned performer.

Trick Riding Is A High-Risk Sport That Can Only Be Learned Under The Supervision Of A Professional And With Proper Equipment

That’s why, if you’re interested in learning or improving your trick riding, we’d love to welcome you to one of our trick riding clinics.

We strive to promote safety in all aspects of training and performing. Our trick riding clinics consist of approximately 5 hours of training each day. We cover everything from overall safety, proper equipment, horse requirements, learning how to execute tricks safely, demonstrating showmanship and exceptional horsemanship.

Our sponsored riders started out in our trick riding clinics, and they continue to be active in our clinics to advance their trick riding skills.

So, if you dream of being fast, fearless, and fabulous in the arena, we hope you’ll join us, too!
