Lessons are usually private, to allow the best learning enviornment possible. Lessons may be combined due to time constraints, daylight hours, or for group learning.
You may use your own horse, or we have suitable, safe lesson horses available at all levels. For beginners there is no equipment required, except for an appropriate shoe with a heel. (Additional fees required for use of horse, and equipment.)
We also offer off site instruction, if you are unable to trailer your horse to our facility.
We regularly school Cross Country, attend schooling shows and take advantage of those opportunities to expose and educate our horses and riders.
Contact us and discover all we have to offer.
