The St. Louis National Charity Horse Show is pleased to present Time to Ride®, a FREE event open to children ages 3-14 years old, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian with a signed liability release. Children with helmets (loaners provided on site, or parent/guardian may bring) will be allowed to ride horses and ponies at a walk while being led by an experienced handler and accompanied by the parent or legal guardian in an enclosed arena.

The purpose of the event will be to introduce children to the joy of equestrian sports by giving them a riding experience. A petting area with horses, donkeys, and ponies will be open, as well as other activities. This event will be held indoors and concessions will be available. Representatives of local barns and equine programs will be available to discuss riding lessons, horse leasing, horse ownership, and answer any questions children or adults may have about the wonderful world of horses and ponies and the various horse and pony breeds.

Child riders will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis with doors opening at 9 a.m. and are limited to the first 500 riders. Donations to the St. Louis National Charity Horse Show, a 501(c)(3) organization, will be gratefully accepted but are not required to ride.
