e begin instructing our riders in a basic balanced seat position with safety and security being our primary goals. As our students continue to develop as riders they are able to specialize in hunt seat, saddle set, or western seat. We offer beginning through advanced lessons and have a variety of skill levels at all times. Individuals who have riding experience are evaluated to enable us to best place the rider in our program. In addition to riding skills we believe it is important for our students to learn basic horsemanship. With this in mind, a portion of the lesson time is dedicated to grooming and tack, as well as general horse care.
Small group lessons are available to individuals aged eight and over. Group lessons allow the rider to benefit from watching as well as doing and provide a sense of camaraderie. Group lessons are an hour long and offered at various times during the week.
We offer a Tiny Tot Program for students aged three to seven. In this program students receive private lessons which emphasize safety and fun. The individual setting ensures safety for our youngest riders.
Private Lessons are also available as scheduling permits. Private lessons offer students an opportunity for focused learning with individual one-on-one attention.
The horses are the backbone of our lesson program. We have a wonderful group of purebred Arabian and Half-Arabian school horses. They have been selected for their willing dispositions and gentle nature. Many of these horses are current or former show horses. They are well cared for and well loved. Carrots, though not required, are always appreciated by your four-legged friends as a reward for a job well done!
Following is a general guideline for the levels that we offer. Learning to ride is an ongoing process that requires basic skills as well as timing, balance, flexibility and feel. Riders develop at different levels at their own pace. The skills learned at one level will continue to be honed through each successive level. Completion of a set of lessons at one level does not necessarily promote one to the next level.

"Do Not Go Where The Path May Lead, Go Instead Where There Is No Path and Leave A Trail"
Safety is our primary concern. All riders are required to wear riding helmets with attached harness at all times when mounted. In addition, long pants and shoes with a hard sole and a heel are required. No sneakers are allowed.
We require 24 hours notice to cancel lessons. If you fail to provide 24 hours notice you will be charged for the lesson.
