safety. fun. experience.
We are primarily a Western based lesson program for ages 7 to adult. With safety and a well-balanced seat being our top goals, we strive to make sure each student is taught to their abilities.
Hour-long lessons include ground instruction and all lessons start with grooming and tacking up. On rainy days, we take our ground work to the next level of horsemanship and work on skills like wrapping legs, hoof care and tack maintenance.
All new students are required to do a trial lesson before being signed up for monthly lessons. A trial lesson allows us to see where the rider is at skill-wise and, more importantly, comfort-wise. A trial lesson also allows you to assess us to see if we are what you're looking for in a riding program.
If students are interested in trying out an English saddle, we are happy to oblige. Contact amy holman for English lessons.
We do not teach any high impact lessons, i.e. jumping, barrels, reining etc.
Helmets and closed-toed shoes are required for all riders. We have a large selection of helmet sizes for our riders.
$75 trial lesson (one-time fee)
$220/ month (once a week)
$200/month per student for families
$65 for every other week rides or lessons scheduled inconsistantly
Students are started in private lessons until they are able to trot off the line on their own. After that, they may be combined into semi-private lessons with 1-2 other students of similar age and skill. Continuing on in private lessons are $90/lesson.
Full monthly payment is due at the first lesson of every month or is subject to a late fee charge of an extra $5/lesson
cash or check
While we are a non- competitive barn, we do have occasional "fun shows" that allow our students to show off their skills. They are also great fundraisers for our beloved barn.
