Introducing children to horses and horse riding

Ready Set Trot is an entry-level program for children aged 5-12 years of age. It’s a great, fun way to learn basic horse skills, and even has its own dedicated website made for kids.

About the Program

Ready Set Trot introduces young people to the world of horses, teaching them fundamental horse skills and horse awareness within a safe and fun setting while also focusing on instilling core values such as responsibility, communication, respect, empathy and team work.

Ready Set Trot consist of two sub-programs that allow for flexible delivery to reach all young Australians – the Ready Set Trot Stable Skills program, a beginners learn to ride program; and the Ready Set Trot Playground Skills program, active-play games and activity sheets that can be delivered without needing and actual horse.
