Welcome to our Special Olympics page! Here we celebrate our riders and their accomplishments when they attend the Special Olympics Horse Show.
Each year we offer those students that qualify for Special Olympics a chance to participate in the Special Olympics Georgia Horse Show in showmanship, equitation, trail and unified riding.
In showmanship, athletes "show" their horse from the ground. They walk and/or trot their horse to the judge, show their horse as the judge walks around their horse and then depart when dismissed.
In equitation, athletes ride a short pattern while being judged on their position and ability to control their horse.
During trail classes, the rider guides their horse through a pattern of obstacles, remembering the pattern as they go around cones, barrels, over bridges and open mail boxes.
In our unified riding class, this is like a drill team to music. Our riders are paired with a unified partner and they ride a pattern to music as a group, sometimes in costumes.
