Riding for Credit

Miami University's Department of Kinesiology and Health offers three horseback riding courses designed for students from beginner through advanced. Classes focus on developing the student's riding skills and cover equine topics such as history, behavior, health care, and industry impact. Classes meet once a week and are designed to instruct students beyond the basics in Hunt Seat, Western and Dressage.

On average, 400 students enroll in these two-credit courses each year and many return to complete all levels. These classes provide students with opportunities they may not have had the chance to experience.

KNH 150.E- Beginning Horseback Riding: For those students new to riding or getting back into the saddle
KNH 150.F- Intermediate Horseback Riding: For those students who have taken 150.E or have significant previous riding experience
KNH 150.H- Advanced Horseback Riding: For those students who have completed 150.F or have received instructor permission
