Riding Lessons

Horseback riding lessons are available through multiple instructors at Haile Equestrian. Lessons are available for beginners through advanced riders in the areas of basic horsemanship, dressage, hunter/jumper, and western riding. Each instructor comes from unique riding background and has their own area of expertise. These varied riding backgrounds and different teaching styles offer a diverse, multidisciplinary program.

In the first few lessons, riders will have the opportunity to interact with their horses on the ground, learn the basics of grooming/tacking, and learn to ride in a structured and fun environment. After the first few lessons, students are encouraged to arrive early for grooming/tacking their horse prior to the lesson to maximize riding time with the instructor.
