Equestrian Disciplines

There is a broad and diverse variety of disciplines in the equestrian world. English & Western riding styles are among the more common practices recognized in the general public but even each branches off into it's own specialized discipline.


Valley of the Sun tries to accommodate our more requested disciplines from members and those who want to become members, but to put it simply we just love everything horse. Over the years we have broadened our classes to invite all kinds of breeds and to open the arena to all types of classes. We've recently added mini-driving, western pleasure just to mention a few. If you have suggestions of a class/discipline that you feel would be popular among the equestrian crowd/members, please let us know. We would love to hear about it.
