Our Mission:

The Progressive Riding Program is designed to create good safety conscious horsemen. Every client will be treated as a future horse owner and as such will be given theory and stable management that will be essential to their success as a confident self-sufficient horse owner, as well as a rider.

Safety and quality are the highest priority and to that aim Progressive Riding Program has a commitment to owning the best possible school horses and top quality new and used equipment.
