Riding Lessons

Benefit from a variety of options to accommodate your needs, ability and goals.  Select from private or group lessons for all levels of equestrians beginning at age 4.  Young riders, teens, adults and seniors are all welcome!

Introductory Private Lesson

New to our facility?  Our introductory private lesson is the place to start!  If this is the beginning of a new adventure for you, we will walk you through everything you need to know and then sit with you afterward to put together the best lesson package to suit your needs.  Coming to us with experience?  Yep, this is still the right place to start!  After the lesson, we will work with you to find the right fit, whether it be a group lesson or one of our other options. Please allow 90 minutes to complete this first lesson at The Academy.

 

90 minute lesson includes 30 minute ride with orientation and instruction on grooming, tacking, and basic horse handling both before and after the ride.  Cost is $120.  After the lesson, you will receive a $50 coupon code valid for 90 days to redeem toward a future lesson program that’s right for you!

 

Private Lunge Line Lessons

Our aspiring horse enthusiasts (aka beginning students) start one-on-one with an experienced trainer and well-trained school horse on a lunge line.  This ensures that the student progresses at a pace that is best for them while allowing for an emphasis on safety for both horse and rider.  Beginning students must continue riding on the lunge line until they have mastered the art of walking, trotting, and cantering without losing their balance.  Riders will then come off the lunge line and tackle the challenge of learning to steer!  This is also done in a private lesson setting.  Once the rider can demonstrate the skills necessary to effectively steer their horse, they may enter a semi-private or group lesson if they so choose.  Continuation in private lessons is also certainly always an option!

Begin your partnership with these

 magnificent creatures with the best foundation

Strong, brave, agile, athletic, intelligent, sensitive, caring, disciplined, teachers, teammates, willing partners — horses are magnificent!  Our students learn from the ground up – horses are our partners in this wonderful journey, and caring for them appropriately is an important part of becoming an equestrian.

In addition to discovering these character qualities, students will learn how to care for their horse’s physical and nutritional needs, how to read their body language (and how they read ours), as well as the mechanics of how horses move.  Whether you just want to be a casual trail rider or aspire to Olympic gold, gaining a more thorough appreciation of how to influence the horse while minimizing pressure will not only improve your performance together, but also help you be more successful in achieving your riding goals!

Group Lessons

Are you coming to AAES with some experience and can walk, trot, canter, and steer?  Do you prefer riding with one other special-someone, or with a small group of like-minded horse enthusiasts? Perfect!  We welcome you to schedule an initial evaluation lesson so we can recommend a group lesson level that will best fit your needs and current skills.  Group lessons are commonly not more than four to six riders and are divided by skill and experience level to ensure that you are challenged without feeling “lost”.
