Fun Horse Lessons

 For the beginner and timid, whether child or adult

 We do not rent out our horses for trail rides.

By appointment only. 

NOTICE: Due to the coronavirus and safe distancing, only older students that can groom and saddle the horse themselves are able to do lessons at this time. Cloth or leather riding gloves are required and masks are recommended just during grooming and saddling. You can bring your own bike helmet.


HORSEBACK RIDING LESSONS

Easy going lessons for anyone with an interest in horses, despite fears--this is the place for you.  

It is best to come in pants with socks and a heeled shoe if possible.


Introductory Horse Experience

This one-time 30 minute experience is your chance to meet a horse up close, pet, brush, and ride if you choose. This is a hand-led experience. This option is suitable for therapeutic experiences. Adults and children ages 5 and up.  $30

Private Introductory Riding Lesson

This is a more thorough 60 minute introduction to a horse with more safety instruction, plus grooming experience, then riding the horse on a lead line until you are ready to try guiding it on your own. Adults and children ages 5 and up.  $45

Ongoing Horseback Riding Lessons

* Level 1 Private Horseback Riding Lessons
