Mini-Lessons and Half-Hour Packages

Introduce a young rider to the basics of grooming and riding with our mini-lessons. Instructors teach on a lead line while riders learn to walk, turn, and stop their pony while riding through an obstacle course.

Kids aged three to five get a private, 15-minute session for just $35.
A group of four of these lessons is priced at just $120.

Learn one on one from our instructors with packages of four and eight lessons. Schedule one to two lessons per week to ensure the student understands the basics of grooming and tacking up. Once your child is comfortable with the horse, most lessons are conducted from a lunge line. Basic riding aides are taught, and jumping is done according to the instructor’s discretion. When the student progresses through these lessons, you can step up to the intermediate and advanced lessons.
