Equestrian

Our equestrian team is a unique program for both beginning and advanced riders.

Two seasons, fall and spring, offer opportunities for riders to learn the time honored art of Dressage while making meaningful connections with great horses and a passionate instructor.

Students ride five days a week thanks to Gould Academy’s partnership with Deepwood Farm and instructor Dianne Ward.

In both seasons, participants improve their riding skills while learning about grooming, equipment, saddling, stable safety, and how to care for and feed the horses. Student riders also experience frequent trail rides to practice the skills learned in the ring, in a beautiful natural setting.

Student-rider skills are put to the test during two shows each term, competing against riders of a variety of ages, experience, and abilities. Our student riders generally experience strong results at the shows and tremendous growth throughout the season.
