Why you should join Roy's Christian Riders?

If you are interested in learning about horses and their care you will like this program. There will be guest speakers like a veterinarian, a farrier, a clinician and other horse people around the area. A big part of Royal Ridges is working to ride. Working to ride is how Roy Anderson started letting people ride their horses on his land. Now we still have the same idea but instead of using your own horse you  will be using one of Royal Ridges horses. So not only do you get hands on experience but you will also get the experience the fun of riding. You will grow in your relationship with God through Bible studies that are matched with the horse lesson for the meeting day so you will be learning how the Bible and God interact with horses.
