Lessons for beginners, as well as advanced dressage and jumping lessons
Enjoy learning about riding and caring for horses, or advance your riding skills with one of our experienced instructors. All of our lessons are structured according to German Riding School principles, emphasizing a safe and structured approach to riding and horsemanship.
Beginner Longe Line lessons
We recommend beginners start out with lessons on the longe line, which helps novice riders establish a safe seat in a controlled environment with the instructor controlling the horse. Establishing a balanced seat is the foundation of any riding. Beginner lessons are 55 minutes long, consisting of learning to prepare and tack the horse for riding, riding on the longe line, and taking care of the horse after the ride. Suitable for ages kindergarten and up.
