Our program is very comprehensive and is geared to the student who wants to learn not just riding, but the handling, care, grooming and saddling of the horse.
We start all our beginner students in private lessons so that with the one on one support, they can be sure to get the basic and foundational skills accomplished, which goes a long way in building confidence. Private lessons are $80/hour. You would have the same lesson time each week. Once have become proficient in certain skills, we can transition you into semi-private if you are interested. Semi private (2-3 students) would be $55/hour.
