Do you have students younger than 8? If so, take a look at the HCBC publication,  Run, Jump, RIDE! This handbook gives some fun ideas to do with your younger students when they are not riding. The guide is designed to help develop fundamental movement skills in our younger equestrians. For kids who want to learn about and have fun with horses we also offer the P’Tit Trot Program. This is a beautifully illustrated book for Western and English students. This program is perfect for Parents, Camps, Instructors or teachers to use. Having access to a horse is not required to complete P’Tit Trot.


All Coaches and Coach candidates should take the time to visit this outstanding resource website on concussions.
