Lessons – Level 3 – Ready to Rock!

Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures is a growing training centre with a 3 step graduated program – Earn Your Spurs.

What You Will Learn

The prerequisite for this course is to have mastered all items taught in Level 2. Moving forward this course focuses on the canter. The fastest but also smoothest gait can be intimidating for a lot of novice riders. We get started on a lunge line but will spend the afternoon on the trail in the foothills. View our Level 3 program details below.

Level 3 – Earn Your Spurs Program

  • Basic horse health and needs (Vital signs, nutritional needs, recognizing most common diseases and injuries)
  • How to ask for, sit and control a canter

You can now control a horse in all three gaits. You can ride independently. You can tell a sound horse from a lame horse and you know about the most common illnesses and how to recognize them.

After finishing Level 3 you should be ready to sign up for the Season’s Pass programme for more fun and time with horses!

  • we offer riding helmets at no extra charge
