All beginners and students under evaluation/tranferring from other programs are required to start in private lessons. Private lessons are 30 mins with one-on-one instruction that begins with basic horsemanship, grooming, and tacking and are $60 per lesson.
Monthly packages for one, two, and three lessons a week are available.
Once riders have graduated from private lessons and are 100% self sufficient with tacking and grooming they are able to move into group lessons of which we have multiple levels. Group lessons consist of 2 to 7 riders, students ride for one hour and the lesson cost remains $60.
Recreational lessons are designed as a "one time" lesson for groups of 2 to 5 and require no experience. These are one hour and in this time we will teach basic horsemanship principles, tacking and untacking, and basics of riding while maintaining a walk. Recreational rides are subject to availability and are $80 per person for the hour.
1 lesson/week = $240 per month
