All students begin with a 1/2 hr private evaluation lesson. Riders remain in private lessons until they are able to walk and trot comfortably on their own, then they are eligible for a group. Lessons are tailored to individual rider needs and goals. With our emphasis on safety, groups do not exceed six people (beginner groups are smaller).

Teaching for the last 20+yrs has enabled us to develop a large, well- rounded group of school horses and ponies. They have all been carefully selected to offer students a variety of learning experiences.


Other programs we offer:
•  Leases
• Horsemanship classes where students learn all about     horses and horse care
• Summer camps
• Working student possibilities


It's time to ride! 

Due to COVID-19 we have modified our lesson program. Currently 1/2 hour private lessons or 1hr groups lessons are $100 each.

Lesson and Lease Horses

We have an amazing English (Hunter/Jumper) lesson program that focuses not just on riding but also horsemanship and the connection between horse and rider. We teach every level from beginner to advanced (also the rusty!) and teach both children and adults. Private and group classes are available. Our schedule is very flexible and we have classes in the evenings and on weekends.


Our years of experience have allowed us to develop an large and versatile group of horses and ponies for our leasing and lesson programs.
