You decide when and how many lessons are right for you, however we recommend at least five lessons to gain a basic understanding of beginning horsemanship, or to brush up on your existing skills.
Lessons involve total horsemanship, not just riding, so come prepared to learn more. You will not only learn proper riding skills, you will learn about feeding, grooming, safety, how to properly care for your own horse and proper care of tack and equipment.
You will not only enjoy one on one instruction, you will get to ride with others in the arenas. We believe the more you experience on horseback, the better rider you become. If you are wanting to purchase a horse, and want to learn how to care for him properly, we can definitely show you how.
