Our lessons are offered to individuals of all ages and skill levels.  We are able to offer youngster as young as 3 or 4 the opportunity to ride one of our miniature horses .. or we can offer an adult who has always wanted to learn to ride but had never had the opportunity…we can also offer lessons to the advanced rider who just wants to refine their riding skills.  During each lesson we teach each student the proper grooming tools and methods, we teach about different saddles and bridles and how to tack up your horse.  There is also a bit on leading and safety on the ground and in the saddle.  Our philosophy is a bit different in that we teach each rider balance and to ride with their seat versus stirrups & reins. We take our time and make sure the rider is confident and comfortable before moving onto the next step. 

All lesson are private at this time and are $50 for 1 – hour and $30 for a ½ hour.  The price for little children who are able to ride one of the minis is negotiable depending on the circumstances. 

All lesson are taught by a licensed instructor and are offered at the students pace.
