Unique to PES is the option for students in grades 4-8 to choose to enroll in Equestrian to fulfill their PE requirement. Our PES Equestrian curriculum is designed to promote good horsemanship and good sportsmanship as well as cultivate riders of all skill levels. Equestrian sports can be enjoyed for a lifetime and promote fitness and an active lifestyle. Horseback riding builds confidence and self-reliance as well as imparting a strong sense of responsibility for these awesome creatures.
PES Equestrian classes meet twice per week for 90 minutes. All riding instruction is in English style riding with a focus on hunt seat. Units focusing on grooming and safe handling, equine anatomy and conformation, equine first aid and health care, competition procedures and many other topics are covered during the school year. Our PES Equestrian classes meet at the Palisades Equestrian Center which is conveniently located within the Palisades neighborhood.
