Independent Riding Lessons
We proudly serve people of all abilities, offering riding lessons to anyone five years of age or older. Our instructors work with individuals with skills ranging from beginner to advanced and can also provide therapeutic lessons! Our students can ride year-round in the safety of a heated indoor arena as well as enjoy our beautiful wooded trails in good weather.
We have options for private, semi-private, and group lessons—ranging from thirty minutes to an hour long. Our independent lessons are available for beginner to advanced riders. Students start by gaining an understanding and confidence from working with horses and eventually advancing to getting their own horses ready for the lesson. As students progress to the intermediate level, they continue to improve posture, riding position, executing patterns, and advancing at the trot and/or canter. Finally, our advanced students will continue to build upon and refine their riding skills and techniques. We strive for all lesson goals to be tailored to the individual student, even in a group setting.
