ABOUT THE LESSONS
FCRA lesson and training programs place a strong emphasis on safety first, but just as important, we want our students to learn and have fun! Riding lessons teach responsibility, discipline, patience, coordination, good horsemanship and sportsmanship. Both programs are designed to produce balanced, secure, and effective riders that are in harmony with the horses they ride. We are fortunate to have wonderful lesson horses and ponies available for your riding lessons!
All lesson programs run year-round. We do not hold lessons the week of Spring Break, first week of school (following KISD calendar), Thanksgiving, or Christmas.
ENGLISH RIDING PROGRAM
Lessons will focus on both flat work and jumping, with a strong emphasis on solid skills based on the reliance of fundamentals and classical equitation. Correct foundations, with an emphasis on posture, are paramount. We take time with beginners to ensure that stability, confidence and effective riding is achieved before moving on to the next level.
WESTERN RIDING PROGRAM
Lessons will focus on both rail work and playday events, with a strong emphasis on developing core skills such as balance, proper hand and seat position, and developing a sound western seat. We believe in developing western riders with a strong horsemanship base and providing them an opportunity to experience multiple western disciplines, such as: barrel racing, playday events, trail and obstacle courses, and horsemanship patterns.
