We are dedicated to introducing new horse enthusiasts to the exciting world of equestrian riding through our riding lesson program. Riding teaches responsibility, discipline, sportsmanship and self-confidence, but most of all it's just plain fun. We offer safe, fun-filled lessons for all ages in our year-round facility.
New students are asked to take an assessment lesson to best determine the right program. Beginner riders must be able to properly groom and tack-up their horse safely before they can advance past this level. This normally takes 2 to 4 lessons until a student can properly groom and tack-up a horse. The cost of these lessons are $80.00 + taxes and are 60 minutes in length.
Our group lessons are offered at 4 different skill levels guided by the fundamentals of the Equestrian Canada Rider program. These lessons have been designed to teach our students essential horsemanship skills while having fun! Upon completion of the levels, students are encouraged to advance to our private lessons with the option to lease or purchase a horse. Of course, clients may also elect to stay in the Riding Academy program. New students are welcome to join at any time. The cost of these lessons are $50 + tax and are 60 minutes in length which includes grooming, tacking and riding.
Students who are below the age of 7 are eligible for our Little Rider lesson. This lesson is 30 minutes in length and gives the children an introduction to ponies and horsemanship. A parent or supervisor must remain on the premises and be willing to participate if needed. These lessons are $40 + tax.
We encourage students to participate in our Group Lesson Program but those students who wish to take a private lessons outside our program are welcome. These lessons are $65 + taxes and are 30 minutes in length. Students must be able to tack up and put away their horse without supervision to be eligble for private lessons.
