Beginning riding lessons will focus on mounting, balance and control, and stopping and steering.
After mastering the basics, our intermediate riding lessons will focus on the further development of your seat and hands, patterns, and transitions within your gait.

Advanced lessons have an intense focus on how the rider affects the horses way of going. For this reasons, riders taking advanced riding lessons have to have exquisite balance, body control, and a complete understanding of how the horse’s body works.
