Degree of difficulty depends on riders skill level. Lesson begin by evaluating rider's fundamentals and progress from there.
Approximately one hour private lesson on one of our horses. Emphasis on developing foundation and fitness.
Beginner riders must start with private lesson. This is necessary to properly develop rider leg and seat. Group lessons should only be available for riders with strong base of support and fitness.
Lessons are broke down into two sections.
Section One: Stable management, grooming, tacking up, vet care, understanding equine terminology.
Section Two: Mounted. Position & Fitness
New riders that are interested in group lessons must be evaluated to ensure their skill level is safe enough for group setting.
New riders interested in group lessons must demonstrate their knowledge and ability to safely ride and steer. For safety reasons... beginner riders should never ride in a group lesson. Group lessons are lucrative thus often utilized. However... riding is a technical sport and time should be taken to properly develop fundamental understanding, coordination and fitness to safely and effectively ride in a group lesson.
We do not offer beginner group lessons and do not recommend them.
