Learn to Ride and Drive in Style
A while ago, the UPHA, American Saddlebred Horse Association, and Hackney Horse Society launched a campaign on EquestrianLife.com to get more people interested in saddle seat riding and pleasure driving. In the program, called “Learn to Ride and Drive in Style,” Participating farms offer new students a free lesson so they can see what saddle seat is all about.
Morgans were notably absent from this program, but not anymore!
I hope a lot of Morgan farms with lesson programs will participate in this. Opening the barn doors to beginners (or curious riders from other sports) is exactly the kind of positive PR saddle seat needs.
