What can you expect at your first lesson?

Enter our front door and be greeted by our friendly office staff and most likely a dog! If it's your first lesson, please arrive a few minutes early to fill out a Rider Release. Alternatively, you may print a copy from the bottom of this page. Riders should wear jeans and boots or hard soled shoes. Helmets are optional and are always available at no extra cost. After checking in at the front desk, we'll take you to the barn to meet your horse. Bring treats if you like - they love apples and carrots! One of our barn gals or guys will assist you in walking your horse to the arena. There, we'll start by covering the basics: How to mount your horse and sit in the saddle, move forward, turn, stop and back-up. Expect to ride a new horse every week! Any questions? Just ask! Our experienced instructors and office staff will help you along every step of the way. We look forward to meeting you soon!
