Horseback Riding Lessons

 

Full Circle Riding Academy 04We offer basic western horseback riding lessons for the beginner rider as well as advanced lessons for the more experienced rider. We place an emphasis on playday events and barrel racing, allowing some of our students the opportunity to compete at local barrel races on our lesson horses.

We offer both group and private lessons. No matter the option you decide to go with, they are both formatted the same. When students arrive for their lesson, they will brush their horse and prepare him to be saddled. They will learn how to saddle and bridle on their own and then we will proceed to the riding part. If they’ve never ridden before, we start out with the very basics: learning to move forward, stop, and turn the horse. All of my students ride by themselves (unless they have a fear that requires someone to lead them) and most are trotting within the first lesson. From there, we will move forward according to each individual rider’s skill and interest level. At the end of each lesson, students will unsaddle and brush down their horse. Emphasis is placed on safety and having fun!

Group lesson rates are $200/month (regardless of whether there are 4 or 5 riding days in each month) and all riding  groups are small (3-5 riders per group). This pricing averages out to approximately $46/lesson throughout the year. You are welcome to pay $45 for your first lesson ONLY and not have any further commitment for the month. Please remember that there is a 24-hour cancellation notice or you will be charged for the lesson.

Private lesson rates vary by length of lesson. Please contact Stephanie at 817-223-6036 for updated pricing.

Lessons are offered Monday – Friday between the hours of 4pm to 8pm and Saturday mornings from 8am until noon. Homeschooling classes are offered on Monday mornings and adult classes offered throughout the week. All classes are divided by age and skill level.

Our lessons programs run year-round. You are welcome to start lessons in the middle or near the end of the month – you do not have to wait for the beginning of the month to start. Call today to get your first trial lesson started!
