or call 472-4724 for more information.
Horsemanship Lessons include:

Safety around horses, how to handle a horse, learn colors markings and breeds, discuss the cost of owning your own horse or pony, basic horse care, a basic understanding of how horses think, brushing, hoof picking, putting on saddles and bridles, thorough beginning in classical horsemanship techniques; including learning walk, trot, canter, turning, and stopping, games on horseback.

Lessons are available for Beginners, Advanced Beginners, and Intermediate or higher level riders.  They run once a week, for a 3 or 4 week lesson series.  Students that need to cancel within 24 hours of their lesson or will forfeit that lesson.  Lessons are given in the ring.

Beginner lessons are both unmounted and mounted.  This instills confidence and boosts self esteem as the child learns how to understand, control and relate to a very large animal.  Further training continues as students learn correct classical position in the saddle. Students are encouraged to try different riding styles to see what piques their interest.

Horse Care

Please plan on staying 15 - 20 minutes after your lesson to clean your horse and tack before leaving.  Horse care is an important part of learning to ride.
