Mini Lessons are especially good for young beginning riders!
Our mini-lesson program is a great way to introduce horseback riding to everyone, for those ages 2-7 who have outgrown circle pony rides. This is a hand guided lesson for 20-35 minutes (depending on the child’s confidence and interest) in our arena for a comfortable and safe start, then on beautiful trails that include pastures and wooded areas as the rider builds confidence. Each lesson is individually geared towards building confidence, safety & a sense of comfort around horses for those who are uncomfortable around horses.
These lessons are great for 2-7 year-old riders. There is also the opportunity for grooming and parent participation as well.
By reservation only, available 7 days a week, based upon rider-teacher match. Please call us in advance to reserve your spot.
