Learning in a small group is fun and enables students to enhance learning by watching others.
Riders are grouped by ability. In the beginners lessons you will learn how to make the horse move forward, steering skills and halting. A strong emphasis is placed on rider position and balance. These lessons include ridden games and fun mounted activities to keep it interesting.
In the intermediate class, riders are ready to begin cantering and jumping, building on the basic riding skills. The instructor will be encouraging more consistency in both the rider and the way the horse goes as students become more accomplished.
In our advanced lessons we focus on more serious dressage and jumping instruction. In the advanced class there is also an emphasis teaching the rider how to educating the horse.
For all group lessons riders are welcome to bring their own horse or pony.
