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 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.
Riders will also learn the basics of 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.
Troubleshooting & Problem Solving
In addition to riding lessons, Lake Fork Stables offers training and problem solving sessions with horses and riders. You will work with your horse and our trainer, Susan Hammond, to identify and solve issues that you may have with your horse. Pricing will vary depending on the issue and the amount of sessions required.
Advanced Lessons & Training
Do you have competition goals you are looking to achieve? Lake Fork Stables offers training to help you achieve those goals with your horse. Whether you want to go to the RRP Thoroughbred Makeover or show locally, we can help. Our trainer Susan Hammond will help you set your goals and develop a plan for you to achieve them. Pricing varies based on your individual needs and goals.
