We offer a multitude of options~

Lessons can be individual or group lessons. With an indoor arena, we teach year round from the middle of the winter to the warm summers! We will match you with one of our exceptional lesson horses that will increase your confidence and skills. General common-sense horsemanship is offered, as well as more in-depth instruction in whatever area you need strengthening in!
Speed event clinics and private sessions include barrel racing, pole bending/weaving, Jumping figure 8,  key race, and all the other sanctioned WSCA and 4-H games. Where space is available, our students are also welcome to attend events and competitions where you will have one-on-one coaching for each event; we only ask  you cover the cost of using your horse for the day, same as you would for a lesson.

  • Riding lessons are 1-hour sessions consisting of grooming your horse, learning how to saddle, ground work while leading your horse, posture and balance while on horseback, steering and stopping at all speeds, and a variety of activities and games to encourage balance, confidence, and fun!

  • 30-minute peewee sessions are offered to our students ages 3 and under, or those with special needs who can only handle a shorter amount of stimulation. 

  • If you feel like you need more personal customization to your riding session, please feel free to contact us and see what can be tailored to your needs.
