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.

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.
