Lesson Program


Riding Lessons 

Riders begin to establish proper equitation during balance lessons on one of our seasoned horses through their first few riding lessons. A balance lesson, includes 1-on-1 riding education from one of our riding instructors. Your instructor will have control of the horse and will work on teaching you how to position your body, so that you will move in harmony with our equine partners. Most riders will ride for 30 minutes, younger riders may start out with shorter periods but everyone is welcome to come early and stay late to enjoy our farm and get to know the horses. As our riders progress we encourage group riding lessons to promote further equestrian learning! 


Horsemanship Lessons

Horsemanship lessons include a 30 minute session with instruction and education on preparing our equine partners for riding as well as basic ground manners, etiquette, and safe handling. Excellent compliment to riding lessons. 

Tiny Tot Lessons

For our youngest equestrians, we offer 30 minute sessions that are tailored for each rider. These are 1-on-1 instruction and may include a split of ground learning including grooming, tacking, and leading our equine partners in addition to ride time. 

Showmanship Lessons

Showmanship lessons include instruction and education on showmanship basics, pattern work, and presentation. Excellent preparation for 4-H and circuit showmen! These lessons maybe 1-on-1 or group instruction.
