Please call to set up an appointment to have an evaluation ride with the coaches if you are interested! 405-495-1489

What is an Evaluation Ride?

The evaluation ride gives us an idea of what level will best suit you.  During this time we not only evaluate your ride, but your character and attitude.  These things are just as important as riding.  The evaluation will take place at the SNU Equestrian Center and on SNU horses.  Depending on your experience you will be asked to do rail work at the walk, trot/jog, and/or, lope/canter.  Look forward to meeting you!!
