Lesson and Training Information

Lessons:

Lessons are approximately one hour in duration. All beginner and novice lessons include a full introduction to horsemanship. Skills such as: equine safety, catching, haltering, grooming and tacking up the horse are included in addition to mounted instruction. Beginner lessons will be taught on a one-on-one basis until the rider can safely ride in a group setting. Once riders can safely ride in groups they will be grouped with other riders of similar skill level whenever possible. We do our best to limit groups to three riders at a time, and to ensure that all riders receive quality instruction during group sessions. Riders may request and schedule private lessons at the Private Lesson rate. A 24 hour notice of cancellation required for all lessons.

Scheduling or assistance with scheduling of all routine care is also included if desired. In any training program the number of training sessions per week can be any combination of lessons or professional workouts. Packages are specific for each horse, and may not be shared between multiple horses. If less than a 24 hour notice of cancellation for a lesson is given, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to make up the missed session.
