The Fay School Riding Club, hosted by Century Mill Stables, is a fun and interactive way to learn the basics of horsemanship and riding, for beginners or advanced students. Participants will be split into two groups for an hour-long lesson. Half of the lesson will be spent on horsemanship, learning the basics of good care through grooming, as well as general knowledge of equipment, parts of the horse, and colors and breeds. The riding portion of the lesson will include steering and control while riding at a walk or trot, correct rider body position, and even some fun horseback games. Each week will have a different lesson with individual focuses of each rider’s needs, from the beginner to the more advanced rider. Century Mill Stables has an indoor ring so lessons may run in all weather. Paddock boots, half chaps, and a riding helmet are the ideal sportswear. Riding helmets are provided if students do not have their own. FAS staff will transport students to and from the Cross Road Fencing Center each week in a Fay SAV. Please note that pickup for this club is at 5:00 pm.
