Riding Lessons: 

Lessons are available in both 1 hours privates ( for beginners or those wanting one on one coaching ) or in 1-hour semi-private lesson groups ( 1 -2 people )

If you are not already leasing or sponsoring a horse we have wonderful schoolmaster horses available for you to ride in your lessons. We also have smaller horses/ponies for kids wanting to ride.

A Typical Lesson Hour:

First, we will start by getting the horse ready, this consists of grooming and tacking up. Then we move to the arena for rider and horse warmups before we start getting into the training session. At GHE we focus on our riders’ physical and emotional health when riding, a happy mind is a happy ride. The same goes for the horses. We will ride for about 45 in the arena working on goals and learning new things each rider wants to accomplish in their lesson. After that, we cool the horses down, untack, and put them away. This is the part where they love treats! Apples, Carrots, Horse cookies are great for a post riding snack! After we quickly clean the saddle off it is time for goodbye until the next lesson at the farm!

For our rates please contact us.

There is a $5 helmet use fee ( to use one of ours ) if people do not have their own. But, we recommend getting your own, it is a great thing to have!

Riding Boots are required for lessons and we recommend riding pants as well, jeans or leggings can work if you do not have riding pants.
