The New 8 Week Session Starts January 2nd 2022

We will be prioritizing lessons for our existing boarders, part boarders and lesson clients and then filling in with new clients depending on space, matching availability for arena time, instructors and horses.
We ask that you try to be as flexible as possible as we do our best to draft a schedule that will accommodate as many riders as possible while still allowing our boarders space to ride and us to maintain a personal connection with each of our students. Evenings and weekends will fill up very fast, weekday/daytime availability will increase your chances of getting a spot.
PRIVATE and SEMI-PRIVATE lessons are ONLY available on weekdays between 8AM and 2:00PM (no evenings or weekends) and we cannot guarantee that we will have availability then either.
If you sign up for private or semi-private lessons this fall you will mostly likely be placed in a group lesson. We unfortunately do not have enough time, space, instructors or horse power to accommodate many (if any) private or semi-private lessons this winter.
The good news is, group lessons are more fun and you have the added benefit of watching and learning from others in your lesson!

Payment Options

Lesson payment is due at the first lesson of each session, unless you sign up to pay as you go, in which case payment is due at the start of each lesson.
