Greenridge Equestrian Center provides a unique opportunity for women to escape the stresses of every day life and ride horseback with other adults and start healthy habits such as working out, stretching, and eating better.
Beth Ellenburg, Teresa Wolf and Sarah Banks will be teaching you the skills of riding a horse and presenting life skill opportunities through life coaching. Sessions will always include a riding lesson which will vary from week to week and a life coaching session. Sessions may also include working out, guest speakers, self care, activities such as dream boards or soul collages and more.
The group meets at 8:30 a.m. every other Wednesday and every other Saturday morning. The morning starts with grooming and tacking up the horse you will be riding that day, followed by some light stretching to relax the body and the mind. A 45-minute-1 hour riding lesson covers a variety of activities which can include dressage, jumping (optional), ground work, or trail riding. Even if it is raining, there is still much to learn unmounted with the horse inside of the barn, so we will still hold sessions in bad weather.
After the lesson, the horses are cared for and the group attends a short life class and/or a group work out. Be prepared for a wide range of activities by bringing your yoga mat and a set of light dumbbells and, of course, a water bottle! Finally, everyone is invited to go out to lunch, where the group often discusses proper nutrition and other healthy-living initiatives.
There will be a limit of 8-10 riders. The weight limit for riders on lesson horses is 200 pounds. If you are unable to ride but still wish to attend the life coaching and exercise, please contact Sarah for pricing and to sign-up.
