Who we are
CDS Equestrian is located at Country Day World School, one of Pinellas County's elite private schools, offering a Montessori and Preparatory education. We are a top Hunter Jumper riding program in central Pinellas County, Florida, near Largo, Seminole, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. We offer lessons and boarding for everyone, from those stepping on a horse for the first time to those competing at A rated shows. CDS Equestrian has something to offer everyone at Country Day World School and the surrounding community.
Why CDS Equestrian?
The mission of Country Day World School is to 'Nurture, inspire, and prepare children to flourish globally.' This statement guides our equestrian program as we use our knowledge of best practices for teaching and instruction, to create teams between horses and riders. We focus on the foundations of horsemanship to create lifelong horsemen and women, who have respect for the animal. Our philosophy centers around creating a supportive environment where everyone from first time riders, to our show clients and their horses, can achieve their goals.

HAPPY HORSES AND RIDERS
“Best end to an amazing weekend! Thank you, Abby and Debbie, of course, for all you do for the girls. We had no idea how many life lessons are wrapped into horseback riding when we started this “hobby”. If done the right way with the right trainer, it’s about growth, character, grit, resolve, humility, patience, and getting back on the horse. Wouldn’t trade these lessons or experiences for the world. You guys are hands down the best. You clearly do this work for all the right reasons, and your love for both the animals and the riders is evident in all you do. So happy to be part of the Country Day Equestrian family.”
“My favorite part about the barn is the fun and friendly environment! Ever since I came to the barn all the girls have been welcoming. The trainers have taught me so much, they want you to do the best possible you can!”
