Stallion Strides is an equine-based character building program that you will not find in any other public school in the district or country. As an arm of our Stallion Strong program, participation is voluntary, beginning with student level interest. It is funded by grants, tax credits, PTO support, and community donations.
Working with horses in our arena, Horseshoe Trails students are given the opportunity to develop a healthy respect for these amazing animals and each other, while creating great memories!
STALLION STRIDES IS PROVIDED BY THE TRRFCC and JODI SCOTT’S HORSEMANSHIP TEAM!

Stallion Strides is modeled after TRRFCC Horsemanship character program. Our mission is to provide all students the opportunity to strengthen character through this hands-on equine experience, by creating a positive and safe environment while promoting sensitivity, confidence, and independence.
Students will complete three unique 30 minute lessons involving two students, one horse, and one professionally trained equine staff member. Safety is the number one priority. All work with horses is done on the ground and there is no riding in this program.
The Strides program is open to all 1st-5th grade students. Sixth grade students may apply for the mentorship program. To be eligible, students must be in good academic standing, receive signed approval from their parent/guardian and submit a completed application by Wed, Oct 2nd.
Fall Cohort Weeks (Mon, Wed, Fri): 10/21, 10/28, 12/2
Spring Cohort Weeks (Mon, Wed, Fri): 1/21, 2/10, 2/24
CABS: Choices Affect Behavioral Success
Stallion Strides supports students in the CABS program from Eagle Ridge Elementary School in our neighboring Paradise Valley School District. The existence of our program makes this possible at no additional cost to our families and sponsors. These students have experienced trauma in their lives and subsequently struggle with relationships and socialization. This learning environment provides these students the same opportunity to benefit from an equine-based program. We are proud to partner with TRRFCC and Jodi Scott’s School of Horsemanship to make this happen!
Twenty-four CABS students will participate over four, one-hour sessions in the school year, beginning December 4th.
