Western Lessons

All of our lessons are private

We believe that one-on-one lessons help our students to connect more successfully with their horse partner and instructor. However, if you'd like to bring a learning partner, we can arrange private group lessons for up to two students at once.

We are a completely outdoor facility:

Our lessons are held outside in all safe weather conditions throughout the year.

Lesson Waitlist

There are presently over thirty people on our waitlist. Since our enrolled student's private lesson plans and schedules are created based on their specific goals, we cannot predict when a time slot will become available.

To tackle this wait list, we are actively looking to increase the number of instructors on our team. Yet, we are very thorough in our search! Our instructors must be kind and patient with both our students and the horses. We want them to share our goals and caring mindset!
