Atypical riders:
Due to safety concerns, instructor limitations, and our location within a busy commercial boarding facility, please call in advance to discuss the options for atypical riders, or riders with specific concerns.

The BRIDGES EQUESTRIAN staff of 6 instructors, 28 lesson horses and crew of assistant instructors are trained and experienced to give you the type of instruction you desire.


Each group lesson includes a minimum of 45 minutes instruction “in the saddle” and a minimum of 15 minutes for grooming and tacking the horse. Additional grooming time is available.


Private lessons include 30 minutes of grooming and tacking (instructed) and 30 minutes of mounted riding instruction.  If you are competent to groom and tack yourself, you are welcome to get on up to 15 minutes early to warm up.
