Our Lesson Program & Services

Lessons are a fun way to meet new friends and get an introduction to the hunter/jumper sport. We offer private and group lessons on our school horses. We will teach you everything from how to tack up your horse to confidently navigate a course of jumps.

Even though we travel to shows each month, there is always an instructor on hand to teach you at the farm. We require an initial private evaluation lesson so we can determine what group placement works best for you.

Individual Lessons

We recommend private individual lessons in the beginning until you are able to maneuver your horse and perform certain skills on your own and in a safe manner before introducing you to a group atmosphere with other riders. This allows you to understand and learn on a one on one basis with your trainer and provide a safe environment to allow for better concentration and learning experience. This is basically a pay by the lesson program so even if you graduate to a group lesson the pricing will be the same unless you chose to do the Riding School program.

Riding School

This program caters to our more avid novice riders. Each class will be with other riders who are similar in experience. We will have weekly curriculum that will include subjects such as horsemanship, breeds, and tack. We want this to be an atmosphere for our students to grow not only as riders, but as horsemen, and also have fun and be around other riders close to their age.

Riding multiple times a week will allow our students riding skills to flourish. Pricing includes two built in bad weather and/or sick days each month. If we miss more than two days because of weather within that month, we will have a bad weather reschedule day. Tuition will be due at the beginning of each month.

We ask our school riders to have proper riding attire, such as:
  • Nonslip riding gloves
  • Paddock boots
  • Jodhpurs or breeches

These group lessons are a good way for riders to learn to control their pony/horse when it is with other ponies/horses. We will also be offering our Individual riding lessons as well on the weekend and in a few time slots during the week. Individual riding lessons are a great way for the riders to get their feet wet getting to know horses and riding. Private lessons are best when first learning to ride.

Because the Riding School classes will be group lessons most of the time, we would like to get the riders pretty proficient during their lessons trotting safely by themselves before introducing them permanently to the group lessons.

The riders will be learning about the horse species, the points of a horse, the natural world of horses, and their colors the first month. We are very excited for what is in store at Hillcrest and would love for each one of you to be a part of it as well.

Showing

Hillcrest farm actively shows throughout the year. Should you decide you want to start competing there are shows and classes available to every stage of rider!

Showing is a great way to test your skills and also develop more confidence as a rider.

The show environment is competitive yet friendly and always welcoming to new participants. You do not need your own horse to show, you can lease one of ours.
