Riding Ring Etiquette

Please be respectful of other riders.

Always call “door!” loudly when entering or exiting the arena

Ride with the flow of traffic, not against it when possible

Pass left shoulder to left shoulder when riding against the flow

Keep at least two horse lengths behind the rider in front of you

Slower riders stay off the rail – faster work has right-of-way there

Give riders in trouble room to maneuver. Halt at a safe distance until they are under control

When in doubt, call out. Let nearby riders know what you are going to do.

Do not longe or pony horses when other riders are present.
