Lessons and Camps

Lessons will open the door to enjoying horses.

You might be interested in an hour or a lifetime of horseback riding. You might be interested in lessons as an activity for kids, as a new fitness program or as a family adventure. You might be interested in learning the English discipline that leads to dressage, jumping or eventing activities. Or you might want to pursue Western riding and its opportunities for show disciplines (roping, trail course, barrel racing) or its simple pleasure/trail riding to connect with nature with a new perspective. Whatever the interest, start by looking into local stables that offer riding lessons.

The best experience is an informed experience. Be sure to ask questions regarding what equipment or clothing will be required or provided, such as helmets or boots. Find out about lesson packages for discount opportunities. Inquire about summer or holiday camps for both kids and adults. Ask for references from other students and plan a pre-site visit before your first lesson if possible.
