We start horseback riding lessons at age 7, though older children are able to learn more, and learn more quickly. Adult Students are also very welcome to start up horseback riding lessons. We have safe lesson horses that will teach you what you need to know about how to control the horse in many situations. Our emphasis is on the equitation (how you look and ride the horse) of the rider. We believe that if the rider has good equitation, then the rider could ride most any horse or discipline.
Our horseback riding lessons are only private (1 rider) or semi-private (2 or 3 riders) lessons. We rarely do group lessons (more than 3 riders). You can have a horseback riding lesson on your horse or one of our lesson horses. Itís $35 for a 45 minute private lesson, or $30 for a 45 minute semi-private lesson. We teach everyone how to tack, untack and care for the horse. That includes, grooming, tacking, warming up, riding, and cooling down your horse. We want you learn how to take care of a horse in the event you would ever want to buy one or even lease.
We teach horseback riding lessons year round but we do cancel when the weather is too hot or too cold. Of course, if you have to cancel for any reason, let us know as soon as possible.
We have horseback riding lessons every day of the week excluding Sundays. Most lessons are Monday through Friday from 5pm-8pm. Also Saturdays from 10am-3pm. Please call or email for availability. Horseback riding lessons are usually once a week, for as many weeks as you would like to do. Keep coming and taking lessons, but let us know if things change. There are no sessions to sign up for. You are also welcome to come watch a lesson before taking any. Just let us know and we can tell you when lessons are going on.
Minimal equipment is needed to start taking horseback riding lessons. Long pants is a must, jeans are usually the easy solution. Also a boot with a heel. You don't have to get official riding boots. You would also be welcome to wear chaps, long or half, and breeches or jodhpurs. Click here for pictures.
Also we offer lessons at your own place. If you would like some lessons on your horse, but donít want to leave your own property, then we can travel to your place. We will travel as far as 20 miles from our farm. Please give us a call or text if your interested in learning more.
We do not offer trail riding for the general public. Please look on the links page for trail riding areas near Rochester, NY.
