Our lessons are for any level of riding for ages 6 and up. You will learn basic grooming skills, parts of the horse, different types of tack, and how to care for your horse. Whether you're just learning the basics, getting back in the saddle, or improving your riding skills, Yonahlossee Stables is the place to be!

Our lesson program is designed to evolve riders into very experienced  knowledgeable riders, whether their goal is to own a horse for pleasure riding or to compete at any level show. To accomplish that, it is important to understand that consistency is important. After the initial lesson and it is determined that a student has the desire to continue with lessons, it is highly recommended that they take part in our Academy School with weekly lessons each month throughout the school year session and the summer session, with no interruptions in between months. Having an indoor arena allows us to contiue with lessons throughout the colder months and any inclement weather. When riders have long gaps between lessons,the return to lessons requires that the instructor must start almost from the beginning again. Whatever the goal  of riding is, becoming a proficient rider will provide the best chance of success on the trail or in the show ring!
