Looking for an after-school program? Centaur Rising (CR) offers
a horse riding program that aids self-confidence, improves grades, helps
the home school or shy child make new friends and helps the child with
ADD (attention deficit disorder) focus.
CR’s “After School at the Stable” (ASATS) program
builds upon what the child has learned in horse riding
lessons and horse camp. Since
children are encouraged to make a school-year-long commitment to ASATS,
the program enables the child to advance significiantly in his/her riding skills. It is also consistent with our long-term commitment to
The school-year-long commitment to ASATS provides a “horse crazy” boy
or girl with the continuity necessary to truly improve their skills. As
with many other endeavors, joy and self-esteem come with dedication. ASATS
also provides a multi-school social network, a welcome respite from the
stress and challenge of own’s own individual school environment.
ASATS has operated since 1992. We have excellent school horses and a comfy indoor arena for year-round riding. A new format in 2019-20 will enable non-riders to participate. In this way we can encourage both friends and siblings to join in!
ASATS is kept small – to maximize the attention and the learning that each child receives. Kris holds a secondary teachers certificate and an MS in counseling – plus nearly 30 years of teaching/training dressage. Every child is different. Kris uses her unique background (and patience!) to work through fear, lack of confidence and frustration. Kris loves teaching kids about horses!
