Horse Riding Lessons
|Students can take lessons 4 times a month, twice a month or once a month. We want to work around busy schedules and budgets. Lessons include learning how to groom and tack up a horse, safety when leading and working around our four legged friends and overall care. Our goal is to have fun learning about horses, emphasizing Self-Confidence and balance on well trained horses.||
