Sunday Advanced-Beginner Trail Ride (walk/trot)

The R&D Club will schedule weekly Advanced-Beginner (walk/trot) rides on Sundays around 9:30 am. Please RSVP if you're interested. Non-beginner riders must have a riding level assigned by Watchung Stables. Call the Stables office at (908)[masked] to schedule your rating evaluation prior to your first ride. Rides might be cancelled based on bad weather, trail conditions, fewer than three participants, or because the Stables or R&D Club have an event that requires all of the school horses.

2013 Watchung Stables fees for this ride are as follows:

$32 for in-county riders

$45 for out-of-county riders

$32 leader fee split among the participating riders

    Marlene: I am enjoying these videos and wish they were available when I started riding, since I have to do my own headwork to pattern how I use my body with precision so as not to confuse the horse. This one explains the transition to cantering: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqmzIog4FQM
    I hope these will come in handy when you have your lessons next fall. I will be taking the intermediate classes again -- to build my capabilities.

    Marlene: I just found these today and will be watching the entire series myself. Here is the next in the series (moving faster, transitioning to the trot, slowing to a walk): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGyV3IY9GAY

    Marlene: There are a couple of short videos which you might watch regarding riding gear and beginning riding. I am very careful about passing on riding videos since there are very few good ones. I will pass them to you via this method if I find others that are suitable for you.

    Marlene: Good to speak with you about starting your riding lessons at Watchung Stables. Here is the link to the Stables website: http://ucnj.org/community/parks-community-renewal/parks-facilities/facilities/watchung-stable/

    I understand that you are in touch with Amanda. Please let me know if you have informed Amanda of the items we spoke of. Again, if you have any questions I would be happy to provide any information on riding at the Watchung Stables or joining the Watchung Riding and Driving Club. I would love to hear about your riding experiences and lessons at the Stables. You can find me on Meetup and use the e-mail feature on my Meetup personal information page.
