LESSONS

Lessons & Leasing

We provide safe and gentle school horses and ponies.  Our instructors are knowledgeable, experienced and are great with students of all ages. We provide opportunities for students to compete at horse shows at the entry level without the commitment of owning a horse or pony.  We offer half leases when available, which allows a student many of the privileges of ownership at a significant reduction in price. For safety reasons we require paddock boots and ASTM approved riding helmets. Both items are available for use at no extra charge.
The Lesson Program is designed to introduce Basic English and Hunter-Jumper style riding, horsemanship and entry level competition in a safe and fun environment. Initially all students will receive private instruction (approximately 30 minutes riding time). Once a student acquires the necessary skills they will *graduate into groups of two or three (approximately 40 minutes riding time) and then groups of four or five (approximately 50 minutes riding time).
Hours of operation are 9:30-6:00 Monday-Thursday and 9:00 to 4:00 Sunday.
Summer Hours 8:30 – 5:00 Monday – Thursday
