Women Riders on the Rise

You’ve seen us discuss prior to the issue the importance of rider courses for beginning riders. Statistically, riders that have successfully completed a riding course are less likely to be involved in a deadly accident. In turn, this keeps their passengers safe. The movement of women riders is growing and we’d like to help the cause. If you’re interested in learning to ride we recommend taking a course. There are several options available for our region. Do your research and decide which would best fit you and your schedule.
