Basic Horseback Riding Lessons

It doesn't matter if you want to learn to ride English or Western. There are a few basic aspects of horsemanship that apply to all disciplines. Once you've conquered the basics, you can ride on to your own personal goals.

You may decide that you want to run barrels, jump, competitive trail riding, western pleasure or  number of horse events.

The key is to learn your fundamentals even if your goal is simply to feel safe riding your horse on a trail ride.

Our Riding Lessons focus on:

  • Balance - The foundation for all horseback riders

  • Control - All riders learn to "steer" their horses, stop, back and correct a horse that is not showing respect

  • Confidence building for the rider

  • Mounting & Dismounting

  • How to halter and lead your horse safely

  • How to groom (brush) your horse

  • Tacking up (putting the saddle and bridle on your horse)

  • How to ride your horse properly at a walk and trot

  • Canter will be introduced as the student progresses

  • Patterns are used to teach the student balance and control

  • How to safely ride your horse outside of the arena

    Our fee for Riding Lessons is $35 per hour of private instruction. Special package rates available.

    We supply the horse and tack. You just need to show up with jeans, boots and a positive attitude to learn!
