What is P’tit Trot?
P’tit Trot is an exciting program for children ages 6 years old and up, who love horses and want to learn more about the equestrian world. The English P’tit Trot programs are devoted solely to the initiation of equitation and general horsemanship, allowing children to discover the pleasures riding as well as developing proper knowledge on how to care for the horse.
The P’tit Trot book is lavishly illustrated throughout and introduces familiar characters for the children to follow and relate to. Each book is divided into 4 chapters – Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum with each chapter building on the previous skill set. At the end of each chapter children can expect to find a series of fun activities testing them on what they learned for that chapter.
This program offers a fun way to discover the wonderful world of horses. It contributes to acquiring various motor and technical skills and encourages children to be physically active, and acquire confidence & self-esteem as they progress through the program. Additionally, this program falls into the “Fundamentals” stage of the Long Term Equestrian Development model.
