My daughter has been riding at York Equestrian for 2 years, and we love it. They have lots of smaller horses that are perfect for young riders (my daughter was 7 when she started here), as well as medium and larger horses, so riders can grow through them gradually. The school has several teachers that are certified by Equine Canada, and all of the teachers are very attentive to proper form and fundamentals. Riders also learn to care for the horses. All riders, even the youngest ones, are responsible for brushing, tacking up, and cleaning the tack afterward. This really boosted my daughter’s sense of responsibility.
For parents, this school is very professionally-run. Rules and policies are clear and consistent, their accounting is organized, and communication is efficient. They’re a pleasure to deal with.
