What Do I Need?
A liability waiver is required to be signed prior to your lesson or excursion.
1. Do I need my own horse?
No, we provide solid lesson horses. However, if you do own your own horse(s) and would like to board at the barn, that can be arranged. We also allow haul-ins at no additional fee for lessons.
2. What should I wear?
Dress for the weather and safely! Safe boots with a heel are required. Jeans or breeches should be worn as well. No skirts or shorts please. Tennis shoes may be worn for excursions, but no open toed shoes allowed around the horses.
3. Do I have to wear a helmet?
Yes, all riders must wear a helmet when mounted on any horse. Lake Fork Stables provides helmets, but if you ride on a regular basis, we recommend you purchase your own.
4. What disciplines do you offer?
We offer English and Western riding lessons. English lessons are either in a jump saddle or dressage saddle. This choice will depend on your future riding goals. However, we do recommend all riders start English and then transition to Western. The reasoning is because you will establish a better, more balanced seat if you ride English first.
