Riding Lessons

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.

Our Lesson Horses

Mistic Gray

20 year old Thoroughbred. Mistic was a racehorse and show jumper in a past life. He now enjoys teaching beginners the ropes and will pop over a fence now and then as well.

Mack

25 year old Quarter Horse. Mack was a rescue horse, but upon riding him, we’ve quickly discovered that he may have been a western pleasure horse in his past life. He also makes an excellent dressage pony.

Cinnamon

12-year-old Thoroughbred mare. Cinnamon’s registered name is Burntcinnamontoast. Cinnamon likes to take it easy and she’s settling into her role as a lesson horse on day to day basis.
