Horseback Riding Lessons

Horseback Riding Lessons Springfield Missouri

Providing instruction to any age at any level is the heart and soul of our lesson program. We cherish our 15 wonderful lesson horses that range from the gentlest of old souls to the advanced competitive show horses.

Lessons are an hour in length and includes usually 40 minutes of riding time. Each student takes their horse through the initial grooming and tacking up to cooling down and after ride care. Occasional trail rides bring variety to the usual arena setting.

Entry level students are assigned private lessons until basic skills and control are developed. The option is available to continue in private instruction, move to semi-private lessons or join a group of usually three to four riders.

Whether your goal is to achieve basic riding competence for a vacation on a dude ranch or to become proficient in the show ring, we would be happy to structure a course for you.
