Confidence building riding lessons starting with a proper equitation foundation aiming to achieve great heights in Eventing and Pony Club for ALL AGES.
Horse training focuses on building a confident partnership with the horse through patience and stability, while providing proper health science to meet each equine's nutritional needs.
Start with the Basics!
We believe that student and equine safety & health should be fundamental to any equestrian program. We require that all students mounted on a horse at any time wear a helmet and boots with heels. We have a limited number of helmets and boots to provide for your initial lessons.
We are a serious, yet fun program. We participate in clinics and shows. We teach horsemanship as part of our program - because there is more to horses than just riding them. We are also affiliated with the Iron Horse Pony Club Riding Center, which presents children and adults with the opportunity to learn to be wholly self-sufficient in horse care management and riding.
Part of horsemanship includes learning groundwork, grooming, nutritional management, and care of equipment. Lessons start with the very basics in education with instruction in how to groom and tack up a horse, in addition to riding in a balanced seat position.

What You'll Need
Long pants, boots with a heel, and an ASTM/SEI approved helmet are always required for lessons. Breeches or stretch pants are a good choice. We have a limited number of boots and helmets to use for those just starting out until you acquire your own.
We look forward to passing on our knowledge.
Lessons can be taken on a school horse or your own horse.
We also believe patience and understanding are important goals when coaching. Yet, we can provide challenges to more experienced riders.
With a technical eye, we strive for exceptional equitation as it pushes the rider to achieve discipline, proper position, and effective and independent riding aids applicable to any style of riding.
