For over 55 years, the Riding Centre has been an integral part of Yellow Springs and Antioch College.
As the college faces new challenges reestablishing itself in the village, so too does the Riding Centre face challenges redefining its relationship with the college. In preparation, we have come to realize how important it is to preserve the Centre's rich history.
So many lives have been touched, and sometimes molded, by experiences at the Riding Centre. In an attempt to preserve these memories, we are reaching out to our old and new friends. Please write down and send us your memories and thoughts about what the Riding Centre has meant to you. Pictures, especially old ones, would be greatly appreciated. They will be kept, with love, in our archives.
None of us can live forever. Please help us ensure that the Riding Centre and its wonderful history will live on for many generations to come. Learn more at ridingcentre.org.

Elaine Meredith Steele delivered another successful Centered Riding Clinic at the Riding Centre. During this popular fundraising event, participants reaped the benefits of Elaine's deep knowledge and insights. Thank you again to Elaine and all those who participated!
Centered Riding® is a method of riding and riding instruction that is based on the idea of having the rider seated in the most effective position. It combines elements of martial arts, yoga, and T'ai chi ch'uan with knowledge of horsemanship to create a system where the rider is centered and balanced in the saddle. Originally developed by Sally Swift, since her death, Centered Riding has been trademarked by a non-profit educational organization that promotes awareness and teaches the principles of Centered Riding internationally. The widespread acceptance of the method marked a significant shift in horsemanship from rote, military-style instruction to a more psychological approach.
