What We Do
Our course Play Days offer you and your horse a chance to come and experience our Mountain Trail Course in a casual setting. While there will be no formal instruction during our Play Days, the staff of Double C will be on or around the course to answer any questions. We also offer a youth Play Day. The Play Days are a great way to learn more about Mountain Trail and make new friends.
Mountain Trail Challenge Series
In our Mountain Trail Challenge Series you and your horse will be evaluated by judges certified through Premier Mount N Trail, on patterns of varying degrees of difficulty. We offer in hand and riding classes in all five divisions: Rookie, Green Horse, Youth, Adult and Open. Each Division is further divided into three Levels: Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.
We also organize an awards banquet each year to acknowledge our winners and celebrate the season!
Double C offers two types of clinics: Beginner and Intermediate/Advanced
In the beginner clinic you will learn the fundamentals that give you and your horse a better understanding of mountain trail. We will start with ground work and introduce you and your horse to the obstacles. This helps to build trust between you and your horse. Our goal in this clinic is to get you in the saddle and over obstacles while riding.
In the intermediate/Advanced clinics, we will further build on beginner basics. Our goal is to have riders more confident on the obstacles and to develop a solid understanding of how to negotiate the course under saddle.
We will focus on proper techniques of entering and exiting the obstacles, how to perform more difficult maneuvers, changing gaits between obstacles and how to negotiate the course in a clear, concise and calm manner. We will also cover how the obstacles will be judged during a Challenge for those of you who are interested in competing in our Competition Series.
We may offer other types of clinics throughout the season. Check out our Events Page for a listing of our upcoming Clinic dates.
