English Riding Lessons at Pretty Pony Pastures

English Riding Lessons

Our English Riding program is designed for beginning through advanced riders including persons who are changing disciplines. The lessons include horsemanship as well as riding. Based on a 16-level riding program, your rider progresses from learning to mount and steer to controlling the horse, to proper form and posture when riding, to trotting and eventually cantering.

Saturday Morning Fun!

Riding instructions are based on the principles of Centered Riding which ensures that the rider has a secure seat before advancing to the next level.

Both children and adults can take part in this program. However, due to the size of our horses, we must limit the rider's weight to under 175 pounds.

Riding classes are held weekly and lasts approximately one hour. The session includes horsemanship as well as riding. See the schedule on the right for the days and times of the classes.

Class size never exceeds four riders. Cost is $30 a class or $100 for month when paid in advance.
