Horsemanship & Riding Lessons

We have over 43 years of riding and riding instruction experience and are the perfect instructors for all riding abilities. Designing riding programs to suit individual needs is our specialty. Starting with matching the right horse to the right student, then building relationship, which in turn builds trust. We have several different lesson choices listed below with more info under each link.

- EFL Riding Lessons: Great for self-empowerment and building self-esteem.
- English or Western Riding Lessons: Most popular with the kids, but adults love these too. This is your hands-on, learning to groom, saddle, ride and over all general care of a horse.
- Natural Horsemanship Lessons: These lessons focus on the teachings of Pat Parelli, founder of Parelli Natural Horsemanship.
