Riding is so much more than just showing up and getting on! We focus on all aspects of horsemanship, from the ground, up! You will learn to groom and tack up your horse and to cool down and properly put your horse away, in addition to safe and effective skills in the saddle.

What to wear:

  1. In order for ANY student to ride, we require long pants and closed-toed shoes.  NO STUDENT will be allowed to ride in shorts, skirts, or any unprotective shoe.  

  2.  We are happy to let students borrow helmets for their first couple of session riding with, but after a few session, all students should purchase their own helmet.  Bicycle helmets are not appropriate or safe for horseback riding.

  3.  All students must wear proper riding shoes (a comfortable boot with a  1" heel; and smooth rubber sole).

  4. Breeches with half chaps or long pants (preferably jeans) to protect your legs.  (leggings and other smooth pants will slip, making it hard to grip the saddle).

  5. Riders should dress for the weather, we do not have an indoor riding arena.

If you are feeling ill, have a fever, or have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID, or have been diagnosed with COVID within he past 2 weeks, we ask that you please stay home and schedule your lesson for another time. Thank you for your understanding.
