Beginner Group Lessons

Ages 8-18
Looking to save a few dollars? Then sign up for our beginner group lessons. Participants will learn how to prepare a horse for riding and begin to learn the gaits of walk and trot. Riders can choose to ride English or Western. Instructors will assign a horse/pony to students. Learning is accomplished through demonstrations as well as hands-on experiences. The first session is non-riding and will teach students how to lead, groom and tack a horse. Students are expected to arrive a half hour before the start of the class for the last three sessions to allow adequate riding time. There is a $15 fee for makeup lessons. Boots are required for participation.
