A private lesson is an hour long consisting of 30 minutes of grooming/saddling and 30 minutes of ride time. My goal as a trainer is to not only have you riding well but have a clear understanding and ability to take care of your horse! I offer lessons in both English and Western, including barrel racing ($60).
A sem-private lesson consists of 2 riders. Typically it’s a sibiling lesson where the children will both groom/saddle the same horse for 15 minutes and each get 25-30 minutes of ride time. Saftey is the main priority so I only have a ratio of one rider to one teacher in the arena then we switch. I do have exceptions if the riders are experienced enough to go together. Feel free to call and discuss if you think a semi-private fits your needs.
Have a horse of your own? I will come to you! Whether you want to become a better rider, strengthen your communication with your horse, learn more about your tack and how to use it etc. Most people will have their horses saddled, warmed up and ready when I arrive so we get started with 30 minutes of in the saddle training. There is additional cost for my time and gas to get to your place. I strive to give you as much information and knowledge to help you and your horse achieve the best partnership possible.
There are a lot of options when it comes to getting your horse trained. Whether your horse needs a tune up, first start under saddle, or you have a specific behavioral issue that needs to be worked through, feel free to give me a call and we will work to find the best solution for your specific case!
