graduates of the strides top gun equine academy

I began teaching horse riding lessons at Juniper Trails in 2019. At the time the lesson program was very small and each coach was on their own to teach as they please with no real structure to bring everyone together. The barn owner, Alicia, and I teamed up to create a lesson program that creates a great foundation for new riders to take with them as they reach their goals. I wrote the curriculum and Alicia brought everyone together and created a fully functioning academy. We officially launched the Strides Equine Sports Academy and the Strides Top Gun Equine Academy in 2020. Our first graduating class is our 2022 graduates. We look forward to adding many more students to this page as our program grows.

Every graduate has completed many tasks and jumped through many hoops to get where they are today. They have finished the Strides Equine Sports Academy which is levels Beginner through Intermediate. They went on to complete the Strides Top Gun Equine Academy Levels 4 through 7. In this time they have learned horsemanship on the ground and in the saddle. They have learned about the equine industry as both a business and a hobby. They have competed in many competitions and attended several clinics. They have tried several disciplines and have found their niche, or a few niches. I am confident that every graduate is prepared to go out into the horse industry with knowledge, confidence, and positivity. I have no doubt they will bring a positive light to the horse world no matter what direction they go.
