Orme's horsemanship program offers opportunities for students of all abilities, from novice to accomplished equestrian. Beginners are taught all the basics of both riding and horse management. Students may ride School horses or board their own private horse on campus. As they come to understand and respect their horse, students also learn self-discipline, responsibility, and nurturing as they gain pride and self-esteem.
All students have the opportunity to show their skills by competing in horse shows, junior rodeos and gymkhanas. More skillful riders can learn advanced techniques. The School offers lessons and practice in both Western riding (pleasure, roping, reining, barrels, and gymkhana games) and English riding (pleasure, jumping, dressage, and equitation).
