COACHING

On our horses, we begin with private lessons at RRA. With riders' own horses, ship-in and off-site lessons can be tailored accordingly. 

 

Co-boarding riders able to walk and trot on their own have the option of semi-private and group mounted lessons. Semi-private and group horsemanship lessons are also available, pending skill level for safety.

Please note, we have made changes to our program throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Wishing everyone good health!

TRAINING

With over 20 years of experience, at RRA we train our own horses, and offer training of clients' horses/ponies in custom formats to suit individual goals and requirements.

WORKING STUDENT APPRENTICESHIP OPPORTUNITIES

     RRA offers our students the opportunity to gain additional experience and knowledge in horse care and the tasks involved with being a groom in the format of job shadowing. This is a way for students to learn in depth about stable management, horse care and general horse knowledge without the safety hazard of doing so unsupervised or uninstructed.

CERTIFICATION OPPORTUNITIES

Pony Club

Pony Club offers an extensive and thorough education outline, as well as an internationally recognized certification program. RRA guides and mentors students throughout the Canadian Pony Club program, including level achievements. Successful completion of the level A standard is equated to an Instructor's certification from Equine Canada. Members entering Pony Club begin at the E level and progress through D, D1, D2, C, C1, C2, B, B2 and A, with both Stable Management and Flat streaming beginning at the D1 level.

Equine Canada

Equine Canada offers an internationally recognized rider certification program through their Learn to Ride Program. This stream currently has levels 1-8, with 9 and 10 on their way.

ABOUT US

The Robinsons

THE FARM & FAMILY

     The Robinsons moved to their farm in Linwood in 2001. At that time, they brought with them two horses, Melanie, a Belgian mare, and Ebony, the black miniature horse who still lives there today! The old bank barn was a pig barn that the family converted for horses, and soon added some paddocks, fenced some pastures, a sand ring, and finally a Cover All.

     The girls joined the Canadian Pony Club and then a 4H Horse Club as soon as they were old enough. The Robinson farm has been home to the 5H-4H Horse Club, the Horse and Pony Care 4H Club, Mounted Games 4H Club and is currently still home to the Boomer Creek Pony Club.

MICHAELAH

     Hi! My name is Michaelah. I have been riding since the age of 1 year, and have ridden and continue to ride a variety horses with a range of coaches through lessons, clinics, Pony Club and 4H. I began my showing career in the Western performance ring with my partner Stormy, and currently compete in Show Jumping, Dressage, Eventing and Mounted Games. I rode on the University of Guelph's Intercollegiate Dressage Team as an Upper Training rider during my degree there in Animal Biology. I have my C2 level with the Canadian Pony Club, and have been freelance coaching since the age of twelve. I have always trained my own horses, and find immense value in building two-way trust with them. With a partnership like that, the possibilities are truly endless.
