Lockstep Riding Co.

The Lockstep Riding Co. is a volunteer team of riders and horses from five counties in and around La Crosse, Wisconsin founded in 2010. Participants on the team range in age from 11 years to adult. Performance riders must possess a high level of equestrian skill, a steady seat and a positive attitude essential for team building.  This fast-paced riding, in a variety of conditions and locations, requires intense focus, quick reflexes and precision to execute the safe completion of complicated maneuvers. Horse health and safety is of the utmost importance. Husbandry, consistent conditioning, training and desensitization are all considered and included in team commitment. Participants may ride with the team for a season or two in practice to attain the level of confidence needed for both horse and rider before riding in performances.
