For students who want a more flexible lesson schedule. Lessons must be scheduled individually, in advance; the lesson time is not automatically carried to the next week. Payment for call-in lessons must be made prior to mounting. Cancellations of call-in lessons must be made within 24 hours of lesson, or you will be charged for the lesson.
For students who wish to ride consistently on a weekly basis. Payment for the semester must be made in full before the beginning of the semester. Students may begin lessons at any point during the semester; the semester fee will be prorated accordingly and will be due at the beginning of the first lesson. Please read Semester Cancellation Policy.
For all new students, we require an initial 1/2-hour private lesson, which gives an instructor a chance to advise a student and gives the rider an opportunity to become acquainted with our equestrian program. Each student will then be placed into an appropriate group or private lesson. Riders in our group lessons are placed according to ability and knowledge. Call 410-721-0885 to schedule your first lesson.
We recommend that all new students and parents take a Hello Horses! lesson. This unmounted lesson teaches a new rider and parent basic handling, safety, grooming, tacking, and cooling out. Call for the next Hello Horses! lesson.
Suggested Apparel For Riding Lessons
For your safety, an approved riding helmet (provided), hard-soled shoes with one-inch heel, and long pants are recommended. Riding pants or long slacks and tall boots or chaps are recommended for your comfort.
Preparation of School Horses
Notify your instructor for arrangements; our horses can be tacked and ready prior to each lesson (except for the bridle). With instructor approval, you may groom and tack your horse prior to your lesson and/or use your own saddle.
Semester Cancellation Policy
Lessons must be made up within the same semester; those lessons not made up will be lost. Cancellations must be made within 24 hours of lesson or practice ride time. Makeup lessons will be scheduled only when the proper 24-hour notice was given.
*Lesson time includes preparation of horse (bringing horse from stall to arena, mounting, etc.) and returning horse to stall.
