I am in serious need of ideas on ways to revamp our riding program. I manage a 150 stall Equestrian Center and am trying to reconfigure our program. Right now we have 7 very talented instructors teaching with 4 arenas. I know that seems like enough arenas but with that many instructors teaching while boarders are also trying to ride their horses it can get pretty messy. During our busy after school hours there are sometimes 3 instructors in one arena trying to yell over each other which is confusing for the riders and also poses a bit of a safety problem.
Along with those problems I'm also finding that all of my instructors are completely booked up and there are still a lot more eager students who want to ride with us.
I would really like to make our program as more of only group lessons but am struggling to find an organized way to group them. I know it needs to be obviously beginner, intermediate, advanced, along with then branching them into specific disciplines like Dressage and Jumping.
Any other suggestions would be AWESOME.
