Overview

Group western horseback riding lessons are designed for beginning riders to riders looking to further expand their skills. The program is a 1-hour lesson with a max of 5 riders per group. Participants register for a day: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

However, lessons are grouped according to their skill level to ensure a consistent riding experience. Once all information is collected they will be assigned a specific group time slot.

Some components of what you may learn are how to catch your horse, lead, groom, tack up, ride, and care for your horse.
