I offer a few different options for lessons. 1 hour Private: $30 1 hour Semi-private: $20 each (intermediate + riders) 1 hour Group (usually 3-4 riders): $15 each (intermediate + riders) 30 minute lesson for a young student:$20 (Usually the best option for students age 6 or younger) *Semi private and group lessons available on a case by case basis when using our lesson horses. I like to see all riders for a few privates so I can see your level of riding and where you need help!
I am offering English riding lessons, Western riding lessons, and now Driving lessons.
I am willing to focus on anything that you want to learn. From getting to know horses better, and just learning how to be safe around them, to the competitive show rider. I do have lesson horses here for our students to learn on, including many different sizes. We even have ponies available to get even the youngest students comfortable around equines! I am also very willing to teach on your own horse. I have an arena and everything needed here, but I am willing to travel as well if that makes it easier for you to work with your own horse. I am happy to make something work! Just feel free to contact me and lets see what we can work out.
We LOVE our young students! Our little ponies are perfect for these youngsters to learn to love horses on THEIR level! (And height!) We will take students as young as 2 years old!
We are now offering day camps to riders of all ages! This is a GREAT way to introduce young kids to the fun, fascinating world of horses! We are happy to schedule a day for your group, or put your kids in with other kids their age! We will learn some basics of handling horses and safety. We will also get to do a little riding. We hope we can offer a really fun experience to introduce kids to these fun animals! We will use the minis horses and shetland ponies for the little and young kids, and we can also use my lesson horse if we have older kids!
2 Hour Day Camp: Up to 4 kids, $30 per child (best for ages 2-6) 3 Hour day camp: Up to 4 kids. $45 per child. Ages 2 and up Custom Day Camps Available: Contact for information
Group Rides: $15 per child, Up to 8 riders. We will generally ride one or possibly two horses at a time (for safety purposes I like to just have 1-2 kid on at at time with beginners), and I can have a few of the little ones out to be groomed and played with while we take turns riding. We can also play "games" and do different things with the ponies!
Contact us for more information and to see what will work for your child or group! We can be flexible on times and sizes of groups. We like to keep group sizes smaller for younger children (and sometimes shorter times!) but we can do longer/bigger with older kids! Let us know what you are looking to do and we will work out what will work best!

I work with each horse on THEIR level and in a way that is the best for them. I always treat each horse with respect and never use force to push them into something that they are not ready for. I feel that it is important to spend a the time putting a good foundation on the horse so that they are ready for whatever direction we take them in. I am a firm believer in always working WITH the horse, building a partnership and never going against the nature of the horse. I will not guarantee that I will be the quickest trainer, most of the time I am glad that I am not, I will always take the time needed to give the horse a solid foundation and I never rush or push a horse past their ability. I will promise that I will always work WITH your horse to build a calm, respectful, willing partner. I am happy to work with any type of horse no matter the experience level, breed or ability. Let me know what your horse needs and we can work out the best plan for them.
I am now taking on horses o any size! I absolutely love working with mini's and ponies. I believe that the little ones can do so much more then just be pasture pets. I do believe that they need to be worked with and treated the same as a larger horse. I find that to many mini's and ponies are man handled, pushed and yanked around and not treated with the respect they deserve. I am very excited to be able to show people that there is a better way to handle, work and teach them. I have loved working with each of my own little ones each day.
***I will only accept a limited number of horses into my training program for each month. I believe in quality, not quantity. I would rather have the time to spend with each horse then to try and push out "numbers". Contact me if you are interested with a horse coming in to our program. I would be happy to also schedule your horse in advance so that the month you want doesn't fill up. ***
