HORSEBACK RIDING LESSON RATES
Group lessons are generally an hour long and consist of three to five riders of similar age and skill level. Private lessons are available for special show preparation or for additional practice to resolve riding issues. Riders are expected to allow enough time prior to the lesson for grooming and tacking the horse. (NOTE: Please see Lesson Rules & Policies below).
