"We have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back."

Private Lessons Your Horse


Private lessons on your own horse can look many different ways depending on what the goal is. 

Disciplines: Dressage, Jumping, Cross Country, Western Pleasure and general riding

Riders are expected to have horses groomed and tacked at time of the lesson unless otherwise instructed.  If advanced enough warm up should be competed by lesson start time. 

Large Group Mini-Clinics

If you have a group of 3 or more riders who wish to have a group session we would be happy to work with you on booking a mini-clinic. 

Please contact us to discuss your groups needs.

Private Lessons w/ School Horse


We offer several wonderful lesson horses who will happily help teach you the ropes of horse care and riding. 

Private Lessons include catching, leading, grooming, riding and after care of the horses. Students learn about all aspects of horses (including the not so fun parts).
