Intermediate & Advanced Riders
Thank you for reviewing the Sandridge Stables Riding Programs. We are proud to bring you excellence in instruction with the most up-to-date coaches and standards in a top-quality facility with a focus on classical education and rider safety. All instructors at Sandridge Stables are certified or in the process through Equestrian Canada, the national governing body for equestrian sport in Canada and the National Coaching Certification Program, which governs coaching and certification standards for all amateur sport in Canada. This ensures students have the best possible instruction with specific attention to safety and the learning progression. Standards under this program are comparable to those in other equestrian countries such as England, Germany, the Netherlands and the U.S. Our instructors continually pursue their own professional development and teach under the guidance of Equestrian Canada High Performance Coach, Tricia Dahms.
