Lessons

Lessons and training are offered to all levels of riders and horses. Whether you desire to ride English, Dressage or Western there is a horse to suit you.

 

Our main goal is to learn while having fun!

 

Students are taught how to groom, tack-up, and handle their horse or pony safely as part of their lesson. Once students have learned how to do this they may come 15 minutes early to begin getting ready for their lesson.

 

It is recommended that students attend lessons once a week to keep their skills fresh in mind.

 

*Students must have a shoe with a heel (1/2 inch-1 inch) and long pants. We can provide a helmet or bring your own.
