Centered Riding Internships

We are the New York State Center for Centered Riding dedicated to the principles and teachings of Sally Swift, founder of Centered Riding. We believe Centered Riding offers every rider, regardless of skill level, the tools to enhance their riding experience. For those who are interested in becoming Centered Riding instructors, we offer onsite internships that meet the requirements of the Centered Riding Organization.

Internships include instruction in the basics of Centered Riding and hands on teaching experiences. Room and board included in cost of internship.

and Residency Opportunities

Come Stay with Us

We enjoy having people come stay with us, and learn from our experiences. At the same time, we find that we also learn something new from everyone who comes and spends time with us.

Over the years we have had several interns. Whether for purposes of personal improvement or for college credits, we have been able to meet the needs of those who come to us. We offer the full experience as far as the equine industry is concerned. Our interns are taught to do everything from cleaning stalls to competing in national level shows (both draft and dressage.)

Our internship program provides the opportunity to learn about:

  • Training using groundwork, long lining, lounging, and the appropriate timing of under saddle exercises.
  • Our interns will also be able to learn about Healing Touch, equine communication, and equine marketing.
