Athletic Equestrian League

For middle school and high school athletes (Hunt Seat riders must be 9 years old, Western riders may start at 7 years old), we offer a program with the Athletic Equestrian League. AEL is a program that teaches young riders about teamwork in an equestrian context. It encompasses riding and “on the ground” horsemanship learning. We have two teams here at Red Barn – The Oaks and The Palms, as well as a Hunt Seat and Western Team. Both teams ride and train together and scrimmage with each other in order to gain competition experience.

Riders who try out for AEL need to be comfortable riding the posting trot–or jogging–independently in a group lesson setting. For information on try outs contact Tina Davey at
