Edgebrook Equestrian Center offers lessons for adults and children of all skill levels, beginner to advanced. We believe in teaching with positive reinforcement to motivate learners to their highest potential. Learning is paced to match the student’s individual needs.
New riders age 5 and up are always welcome! If your child has never ridden a horse before, we look forward to introducing them to the equestrian sport, helping them achieve their riding goals in a safe, professional, and fun environment. New riders always begin with a private evaluation lesson so that we can evaluate their riding skill and give them one-on-one attention. Riders will learn grooming, basic horse anatomy, correct terminology, and care for their tack. Riding skills and equine knowledge are built up from week to week assuring a well rounded foundation in riding. We have well mannered, safe lesson horses and all the necessary tack, helmets, and equipment to get our beginner riders started!
Once riders are confidently trotting, there is the expectation that you will begin the lease or purchase process and join us at shows. Our lesson horses are reserved for our beginner riders.
Horseback Riding Lesson Rates:
- Our lessons are sold as a monthly tuition with a minimum of one lesson/week (recurring at the same day/time).
- All beginning riders must start with an evaluation lesson ($85).
We encourage families to start with a tour and then schedule a one hour private evaluation lesson ($85) so that we can get a good feel for where the rider is and what lessons are appropriate.
We are a teaching, showing and training facility. Your lesson, especially at the beginning, will include time spent catching your horse, grooming, learning about tack and tacking your horse. Then you will spend time riding, untacking and grooming. If you are interested in a single trail or leisure ride, please allow us to recommend another facility. Once you are confidently trotting, there is the expectation that you will begin the lease or purchase process and will join us at shows.
