We offer lessons to the rider looking to get on a horse for the first time, all the way to those seeking to hone their skills for the "A" circuit show ring in hunters or jumpers.  Lessons are tailored to the skill level of the rider and horse.

You can bring your own horse (no trailer-in fee) or ride one of our school horses (no extra charge).


$650 for a package of 10 lessons


From time to time we have lesson horses for lease.  A half lease is available for $350/month.
