Our lesson program is tiered to accommodate all levels of riding. Each tier has specialized lessons, horses, programs and prices. Instructors will let riders know when they are ready to move up but there is no obligation to do so.
Tier 1 is geared towards beginners learning to walk, trot and canter. This crucial time is when riders learn the proper base position that will serve them for the rest of their riding careers. These lessons are mostly private lessons until the rider can walk and trot on their own. Horses and ponies in this category are generally older, and have smooth, slow gaits. We ensure that riders have the following skill sets before moving on to Tier 2: solid leg position and strength, knowledge of correct diagonals and leads, proper position in all three gaits and ability to groom their horses proficiently.
