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.
Two times/Week: $330
Three times/Week: $550
Four times/Week: $770
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 when it is with other ponies. We will also be offering our usual riding lessons as well on the weekend and in a few time slots during the week. 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.
