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!
