Whitestone Farm offers an ANRC Junior Horsemanship Challenge program.
The ANRC Junior Horsemanship Challenge is a team competition for schools and organizations with students in grades 6 through 12. The competition is modeled after the ANRC National Intercollegiate Equitation Championship and conducted in three or four phases—- a Program Ride in the constraints of a ring; a Medal Course in a ring; and an optional Derby Course in a ring, field, or in and out of a ring, and a Written Test provided by ANRC based on forward riding theory and stable management.
Each academic year, member schools and organizations that participate in ANRC Junior Horsemanship Challenge local team competitions can qualify for the annual ANRC Junior Horsemanship Challenge National Championship held annually in May. Throughout the year, coaches are encouraged to incorporate forward riding theory and sound stable management practices to improve the rider’s mounted and unmounted horsemanship skills. Students are encouraged to set personal goals as well as team goals, study ANRC materials, practice fundamentals, and apply knowledge.
