Learn to ride or give a helping hand at Equestrian Crossings

Have you always wanted to learn to ride or to brush up on your horsemanship skills? Make this summer memorable by joining the team at Equestrian Crossings.

EqX teaches riders of all ages, sizes, abilities and disabilities to explore the wonderful world of horses. Absolute beginners of any age are particularly welcome.

Your participation with EqX also helps make it possible for special needs kids to experience the thrill and freedom horses offer.

EqX offers lessons in Western and English styles, or, if gymnastics or dance is your thing, EqX can introduce you to the beautiful discipline of vaulting. Highly knowledgeable and experienced instructors work with students of all descriptions from young children to riders in their 80s in a safe and fun atmosphere.

EqX is now accepting student and volunteer applications for summer and fall sessions. Traditional riding instruction as well as Hippotherapy, vaulting and adaptive lessons are offered.

The summer program runs for seven weeks from July 10 through Aug. 24. There are lessons in Oak Harbor on Tuesdays and Fridays and in Greenbank on Thursdays. Lessons are scheduled throughout the day to accommodate work and school schedules.

Lessons are $30, plus an annual fee of $30 for new students. Scholarships are available and donations are gratefully accepted.

Registration and application packets can be downloaded from or contact info@equestrian or 360-320-1573 for more information.
