Saddle Up and Enjoy Horseback Riding in Redmond

Saddle Up and Enjoy Horseback Riding in Redmond

People and horses have been inseparable since humans took to the saddle about 3500 BCE. The advent of the automobile around the late 1800s meant horseback riding became a recreational rather than a practical activity. Most people choose to ride these gorgeous creatures for fun, exercise, or in preparation for a race. If you're looking to enjoy horseback riding in Redmond, you’re in luck. There are several stables located near our Redmond apartments.

Tashunka

At Tashunka, you'll encounter a team that's worked with horses for years and therefore know their way around the stables and tracks. If you're interested in learning how to ride on horseback, then come down to the farm. The learning program is in-depth and structured, designed to take the horse and new rider at a pace conducive for both parties. Pros can test out their skills on the on-site trail loop and the close-by trail system with double and single track trails.

Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center

The Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center is a community that uses horseback riding to transform the spirit, bodies, and minds of people with disabilities. It was established in 1976 by Margaret Dunlap, a woman who discovered that being on horseback slowed the progression of her Multiple Sclerosis. From humble beginnings, this program has grown into one of the country's largest accredited Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International centers.

The most popular services offered are Hippotherapy and Adaptive Riding. These practices promote physical benefits such as improved eye/hand coordination, discouraging bone weakness, strengthening muscles, and improving one's balance. All the confidence that arises from horseback riding provides many psychological benefits, such as building a sense of independence as well as improving peer interaction and communication skills.

Western Sky Horsemanship

Western Sky Horsemanship is a place where you can learn, vibe, and ride with the wind in your hair. It’s run by a phenomenal group of riding instructors. As is expected from a well-run environment, Western Sky offers a holistic approach to training and riding that involves knowing one's way around the stable and learning a thing or two about horse care.

While you and yours will bond with fellow riders and learn to respect these amazing animals, there's still a competitive air about the place as some of the school horses can gallop at the highest levels. Thanks to the training offered that incorporates ranch roping, cowboy dressage, and liberty work, you can become a true horse enthusiast.

From dog parks to horseback riding in Redmond, there’s so much for animal enthusiasts to enjoy near the Parkside apartments. If you’d like to learn more about our vibrant community, contact us today. We’d love to schedule you a tour.
