2020 Riders’ Challenge

2020 Riders Challenge

Main Stay Therapeutic Farm’s annual Riders’ Challenge begins on Monday, August 10th and runs through Saturday, August 29th

WHAT IS THE RIDERS’ CHALLENGE?

This fun and friendly competition engages our riders in fun lesson plans and encourages them to raise money for horse care costs. This year our theme is “We Got The Beat”! Therapeutic Riding lessons will combine the wonderful sounds of music with horses and humans.

The great news is that you don’t have to be a rider to participate. Everyone is welcome to join the Riders’ Challenge. You can sponsor a horse or create a challenge at your business and have different departments raise money for Main Stay. Participants compete against each other to raise the most funds to help care for our special therapy horses. Funds raised from the Riders’ Challenge will be used for animal care costs. Prizes will be awarded for the top 3 earners and all participants will receive a Riders’ Challenge t-shirt.

FOR RIDERS

Lesson plans will feature different playlists that highlight rhythm and how horses have different beats at different gaits – walk/trot/canter. Each horse has a signature beat (gait) and each rider matches their movement and rhythm with their horse. The three week Riders’ Challenge features the following music themes: We Got The Beat, Wild West Songs, and Dancing With Your Horse. Riders will learn about rhythm and ride their horse in a musical freestyle pattern, just like the Olympic equestrians do!
