Our riding lessons are focused on learning good horsemanship, proper position with a focus on safety. All lessons are taught by a professional, experienced, knowledgeable member of our staff including a former elementary school teacher.


All beginner lessons start as private with the goal to work up to group lesson once more experienced. Lessons are approximately 30 minutes of active riding time along with up to 30 minutes of grooming and tacking up/untacking ground work.

We teach Saddle Seat, Hunt Seat, and Western riding lessons for young kids and adults alike. A wide variety of safe, proven lesson horses are available for beginners, as well as other options for intermediate to advanced riders hoping to polish their skills & challenge themselves in an exciting way.

Whether it starts from a young child's love for animals or an adult's life long dream of having their own horse, we can help you realize your goals. We like to say that horses raise great kids! They also bring out the best in our adult students as well.

Beautiful surroundings to enjoy

 What could be better than learning to ride at a well cared for, beautiful facility with a pretty view? Don't let the convenient location fool you ... when you are here you feel like you are miles away from everything.

We believe that riding horses is much more than just another activity - its one of the best ways to teach important life lessons to our young people such a hard work, patience, confidence, and compassion. Adults will find the experience just as enlightening and rewarding, all while finding a much needed escape.

What to wear for your first lesson?

First time riders can come to introductory lesson in long blue jean pants and a hard soled shoe. We STRONGLY recommend getting proper riding gear as soon as possible.


  • Boots: The most important piece of safety gear with horses is proper riding boots. They protect your feet when working around the horses from ground and provide a secure base in the stirrups. We recommend paddock style leather riding boots. Amazon carries an inexpensive pair for beginners: Tuff Rider Starter Boots. Serious students prefer Ariats for long lasting comfort and durability.
  • Helmets: Highly recommended and required for beginner children - we recommend a proper horseback riding helmet not a bike helmet. Ovation makes a great low profile adjustable size schooling helmet available on Amazon: Ovation Schooler Helmet.
  • Riding Pants: These should have ultra-suede knee patches for a comfortable grip with the saddle. Regular pants have seams right where your leg lays on saddle. Breeches are fitted at bottom of leg and Jods are bootcut (tie downs preferred). Favorite brands include TuffRider, Kerrits, Piper Jods, Alympic Equestrian or Mod Jods.
  • Gloves: Optional but helpful for creating a better grip on the reins and keeping hands warm during winter months. Look for ones designed specifically for riding (leather or other types of non-slippery, thin material gloves) such as SSG or Heritage brands.

Please Take Note

Please plan on arriving 15 minutes early for your lesson and staying a minimum of 15 minutes after. Riders that arrive late will have that time deducted from their lesson. 


Riders are NOT to be left unattended during their lessons without prior permission from their instructor.
