RETURNING TO RIDING

For Adults with Riding Experience

DURATION OF EACH LESSON

60 minutes

NUMBER OF LESSONS

Summer Session: 8

Fall/Winter/Spring: 12

CURRICULUM

This class is geared toward adults who rode significantly when they were younger and are looking to get back into riding after some time off, or adult amateurs who do not have their own horses and are looking for a new barn home. For Returning to Riding classes, students are expected to catch, groom and tack their own horses before the lesson begins. Class size is capped at 4 students. Lessons are 60 minutes long and there is no corresponding horsemanship instruction. If it's been awhile and you might need a refresher on horse handling/grooming/tacking, you are welcome to sign up for one of the Wine & Ride classes for your first session back! The skills worked on during Returning to Riding classes depend largely on the goals and skill level of the group.
