Beginner Lessons, Individual Riding Lessons, and Lesson Packages
Designed for beginner through intermediate riders who do not own or lease a horse. The emphasis of our programs is to build a solid foundation of basic horsemanship skills. Students learn stable management, control of the horse and correct riding form, both on the flat and over fences.
Lesson programs are offered at a reduced rate in comparison to the single lesson charge. If you do not receive all of your lessons during the month, the cost reverts to the individual lesson fee. Payment is due at your first lesson each month. You may cancel lessons and re-schedule them during the current month only.
Two One-Hour Lessons
Designed for beginner riders. During the first lesson, the student is taught the proper and safe procedures involved in grooming and tacking up a horse. In the second lesson, the student grooms, tacks up, and mounts the horse, learning control and basic positions.
