November Courses

Beginner Riding & Horsemanship

Just starting out, or been out the saddle for a long time?  This course is for you.  In these four two-hour classes you will learn to catch, lead, groom, tack up and un-tack a horse before and after your group riding lesson.  Our school horses are gentle teachers who will carry you safely while you learn to walk and trot through circles and turns, over poles, and around obstacles.  Included free with the series is access to our online materials, plus two bonus live chat horsemanship discussions over Discord with our knowledgeable teachers.

Class is limited to four riders, with two free audit spaces available.  Auditors will have the opportunity to be ‘fifth riders’ if regular class members are unable to attend.
