Whatever your experience level or style of interest, we can customize a riding program to fit your needs.
All lessons are given with Saddleseat instruction and are geared toward teaching students to ride not only a horse, but a show horse. Driving lessons are also available. We understand that not all riders will choose to compete, but it is our desire to give students the opportunity to learn show ring skills so that they may show if they choose. Beginning lessons are geared toward learning basic horsemanship regardless of future intent.
Lessons are available for ages 4 through adult. The lesson can be adjusted for beginning to advanced riders. Driving lessons are also available.
For lessons you will need:
Kentucky Jodphur Pants
Please note: In the beginning, long pants or jeans with a hard sole, closed toe shoe is permitted. Shorts are absolutely not permitted. Gloves are not required for beginning lessons but as students progress they will be necessary. Helmets are required by Michigan law for children under 18 years of age and are strongly encouraged for every rider. A helmet is available for loan, but you should purchase your own for sanitary reasons.
Any of the above can be purchased on the Resources/Links Page. We support our local businesses, so if you have questions about where to purchase please ask.
Rates Lessons are one-half hour and are private unless indicated by the instructor. The rate is $30.00 per lesson. Rates are per half-hour and are subject to change (call for latest pricing).
Clients with a horse in training receive one lesson per week included in their training rate. They also receive one ride/drive per week with their training horse.
Cancellation Policy Lessons must be cancelled or rescheduled by 12 PM on the day of the lesson. Students not cancelling lessons will be responsible for the cost of the lesson. The instructor reserves the right to dismiss students for excessive cancellations.
