TRAIL RIDING LESSONS: Trail Riding Lessons are a way for people to learn about horses and horsemanship without having to learn in "just" a riding ring environment. You get the added benefits of learning all the core skill riding basics that will carry over to any discipline of riding. Rates: Private Trail Riding Instruction 60.00 for 1- 2 hour trail riding instruction (total mounted ride time approximately 60 minutes)
Group Trail Riding Instruction: 40.00 for 1- 2 hour trail riding instruction (total mounted ride time approximately 60 minutes) no more than 4 in a group Each person will be taught how to groom and care for their mount before and after the lesson. We teach adults as well as children from Beginning to Intermediate riders. We stress personal goals when learning to ride and want everyone to have a good time.
What to expect during your first lesson: When you arrive you will be introduced to your mount Shown how to halter and lead your mount Safely put him/her in the cross ties Correct grooming and cleaning of feet Learn how to correctly saddle and bridle your mount How to correctly mount your horse Fundamentals of steering and controlling your mount How to correctly balance and position your body in the saddle on uneven terrain Please allow for at least 1 ½- 2 hours for the first few lessons. In the beginning it takes time to learn these skills. Actual riding time will be 45-60 minutes As you become more efficient and quick at grooming and tacking, you will have more time to ride during the lesson. I have found that some students enjoy grooming and being around horses as much as the actual ride so you are welcome to brush your mount to your heart's content after the lesson.
******* PLEASE NOTE ******** If you are starting lessons at Jumping H Farm with previous riding experience. Your current lesson will be based on your previous experience.
