Lesson Program Basics
Every student begins with a private lesson so that we can evaluate the rider and place the rider at
the appropriate level and with the appropriate horse. For a beginner, it usually takes about 10 private
lessons before the rider is ready for group instruction. Every rider progresses at a different speed. Very
young riders may need more private lessons before riding in a group. Experienced riders usually combine
private lessons with a group lesson.
