Private, beginner through advanced western riding lessons for ages 6 and up.
I specialize in teaching beginner riders and those that have lost their confidence to feel comfortable and secure again around their horse as well as in the saddle. Lessons include grooming, tacking, feet handling, care and feeding tips, groundwork, learning balance and feel in the saddle, transitioning between gaits, gaining control and communication with your horse, and much more. I also teach more advanced maneuvers and riding skills for the experienced rider that wants to expand their knowledge. Safety and enjoyment for you and your horse are top priorities.
