Young Riders

Beginning Rider

Our beginning lessons teach the basics of hunt seat equitation. They are taught individually and include time being taught on the lunge line as well as closely supervised riding time in a larger ring. Students learn how to jump by negotiating small courses of poles and cross rails.
