English & Western Riding Lessons
Our riding lessons teach new riders the importance of balance and a secure seat. Beginners will learn the foundation of dressage, whether they choose to ride English or western, and how to use the aids properly.
Lesson horses are provided. Riders should wear boots with 1/2 inch heal. Preferably no tennis shoes. Helmets are required and provided.
Private lessons – 1 hour – $50
Riders will also learn horsemanship including proper grooming, tacking and general horse care. It’s important that students learn all of the aspects that go into not only riding, but properly caring for a horse. Lessons are adapted to the skill and confidence level of each rider.
In addition to regularly scheduled lessons, riders will have access to our new online curriculum that helps supplement what they are learning in their lessons. This is set up via a Google Classroom and broken down into lessons that correspond with each riding lesson.

Riding Lesson Semesters
Our riding lessons are scheduled on a semester format with each child having their own scheduled date and time each week. You will notice that July and August are not included as we have found that the extreme heat and humidity of the summer makes it very difficult on both the horses and the riders.
Students in the Horses 4 Heroes will remain at their current rate, however, the same date structure will apply. Lesson semesters can be paid in installments of 5 lessons at a time ($175). There may be the option to add additional lessons for $35 per to these semesters depending on availability and weather.
