Lessons

We offer a lesson program for children, youth, adults and those with special needs who want to ride for recreation, improve basic riding skills and develop a bond with their equine partner.  We also work with local Mental health professionals to offer Equine Assisted Learning and Therapeutic Activities on the ground and while riding (for more info see Horses Helping People programs).

Riding lessons are taught by trained and certified CHA and PATH instructors.  We focus on naturally developing skills on the ground and in the saddle and developing a secure seat regardless of saddle type.  Lessons are designed to develop well rounded, safe skills in students ages 6 and up as well as those with various abilities. Students assist in the preparation of their horses for lessons and do ground work at the beginning of each lesson, developing and growing a partnership with horse and human. Riders with disabilities must have a primary care doctor sign a health consent form stating that horseback riding and activities with horses are not contraindicated or potentially harmful for them.
