Lessons 2017

English horseback riding lessons and hunter / jumper lessons are available through our riding school for all riding levels.  We start children between the ages of 3 and 5.  We offer adults only classes.  Whether you are looking to learn for pleasure or to be competitive, our school horses are safe and ready to help you accomplish your goals.

Safety always comes first and it is evidenced by our amazing school horses. Most of our school horses and ponys are retired from "A" competition but love helping new riders learn the ropes in their lessons as well as beginner classes at the horse shows.

We are currently not accepting any new lesson students unless you want to lease a horse.

Your Horse Haul In $45    (45 minutes)
For your first lesson please wear a shoe with a heel on it and comfortable pants that are not too loose fitting.  We will provide you with a hard hat.  After your first lesson, we will discuss proper lesson attire and show you where it can be purchased.  Please come 15 minutes early to your first lesson to fill out the necessary paperwork and familiarize yourself with the facility.  After each lesson, time permitting, each student will learn how to untack and groom their horse.  We also teach all students how to be safe around horses.  Once our students are in a program, they will learn how to tack up their lesson horse and will be expected to arrive 30 minutes prior to their lesson.  We take a very traditional approach to our lesson program and all students learn, not just how to ride, but how to care for horses.
