Join us for a day on Monarch Lake! SUPs, kayaks, canoes, and the sunshine, what more could you ask for? Come join us for one of our most popular programs, a lake paddle day! During the day at the lake, participants learn water safety and paddling skills in a beautiful environment. Participants can choose from canoes, kayaks and paddle boards. We suggest wearing a swimsuit or shorts and try to avoid wearing jeans or sweats. Participants must wear PFD at all times while participating in the program (the PFD’s will be provided by the NSCD).
The NSCD offers three different levels of lessons:
Beginner Lessons – The skills that will be learned during these lessons encompass the basic fundamentals of the sport including grooming and tacking, mounting, balance and body control and stopping/steering at a walk or trot. *Maximum rider weight is 200 lbs.
Intermediate Lessons – Intermediate riding lessons offer participants a way to further advance their riding and prepare for more advanced skills, such as further development of your seat and hands, transitions within the gait and more complex steering patterns at a walk or trot. *Maximum rider weight is 200 lbs.
Advanced Lessons – Unlike beginner or intermediate lessons, participants will focus intensely on how they affect the horse. For this reason, participants in advanced lessons must have balance, body control and a complete understanding of how the horse’s body works. The NSCD riding instructors must approve all advanced participants for lessons.
*Maximum rider weight is 200 lbs.
