“LEARNING
TO RIDE
HORSES
IS NOT A
TASK – IT IS
A JOURNEY”

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

We have both Western and English lessons available.

We work at the student’s pace to expand their riding skills to walk, trot and canter while steering confidently. Students who wish to learn to jump may do so – we have an advanced instructor available for those who are ready.

Which style should I ride?

Western riding encompasses many disciplines – barrel racing, reining, mounted shooting and many more. We focus on Western Pleasure, which differs from English with a deeper-seated saddle, longer stirrups and a more relaxed posture. Riders who want to ride trails should start with this style.

English riding is more close-contact and “involved” than Western. Disciplines include Dressage, Showjumping, Eventing and others. We teach forward-riding Hunter or Hunter-Jumper style. The saddle is more forward cut, and the stirrups are shorter. Riders who want to jump should start with this style. We also attend local schooling shows regularly if you would like to join us and experience the show atmosphere!

WHAT TO EXPECT: YOUR FIRST LESSON

New students must complete an evaluatory lesson prior to being admitted to the program. This benefits the rider in helping them determine if they enjoy riding, enjoy the instruction style, and are – most importantly – having fun!

WHERE WE ARE

We are located in Burlington, North Carolina just north of the 40. Close to Mebane, Graham, Brown’s Summit and Reidsville.

New students will receive directions once confirmed with their lesson time. Because we are not a public barn we do not post our address directly.
