The P’tit Trot program is an introduction to the EC Learn to Ride Program in both English and Western riding. The program designed for children 5 years and over who love horses/ponies  and want to learn about horseback riding while caring for them at the same time.

The P’tit Trot book is very in-depth and well-illustrated, yet easy to follow and understand for young minds or those learning the English language. The coloured drawings and pictures combined with the educational notes help children to discover the ABC’s of the behaviour of the horses, the care they require, the attitude to have around them, as well as the basics of horseback riding in a safe environment.

Parents and Coaches:
Parents and coaches are invited to use this colorful and educational program, which can be used for day camps, beginner lesson programs, or just as a fun addition to any learning environment.

The coach helps the child learn all of the introductory lessons presented in each chapter of the book. The coach can then present the child with a certificate for each level they have reached: bronze, silver, gold, platinum.

P’Tit Trot  manuals come in an attractive package with a drawstring bag suitable for a helmet, a coloring activity book, a certificate of achievement and sticker for each chapter as well as a progress report. At this time, it is not mandatory the program the program be delivered by a Certified NCCP
