Both Stacey and Amanda offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced rider lessons for any age rider. All lessons are tailored to the needs of the horse and the rider’s ambitions. We have a variety of lesson horses available from beginner to advanced, or we can work with you and your horse. Private lessons are $75.00 per hour, contact us for group lesson rates and information.
Beginner lessons typically start with:

  • Safety

Intermediate and advanced lessons can cover any number of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Lead changes

Our specialty is increasing communication and trust between horse and rider by helping students identify and work through barriers creating tension. This is especially helpful for students who have lost confidence in themselves and their abilities. Our students frequently mention that we are incredibly patient teachers.
