All ages and riding abilities are welcome! The Instructors at White Stables teach students all aspects of horsemanship for safe and effective groundwork and riding so that riders gain confidence and skills at their pace. Lesson horses are provided that match riders abilities and disciplines, or you may provide your own horse*.
Our goals include:
> building self-confidence and independence in all riders
> teaching the fundamentals first and building from there for safer & more effective groundwork and riding
> preparing riders who wish to learn the basics of caring for their own horse
> advancing riders who wish to move on to higher skill levels whether it is more accomplished pleasure riding or showing
Beginner lessons are designed to help set novices at ease. All students should feel comfortable taking things at their own pace. In addition to student riding, Beginner Riding Instructors are happy to spend extra time going over any of the following:
> catching and putting your horse in cross-ties or learning how to do a quick-release knot
> grooming and tacking your horse
> basic groundwork and learning how to lead your horse
> untacking your horse including cleaning and cool down
> putting your horse back in stall or field $55/lesson
Advanced lessons are for riders who have mastered the basics and are looking for more challenging lessons, riders wishing to compete in shows, or riders looking for specialty training such as jumping, equitation, dressage or eventing.
