HORIZONS EQUINE LESSONS 
ALL AGES + ABILITIES

Participants can expect to be required to groom, tack, ride and take care of their horse during their 1 hour lesson. Brand new riders will be taught step by step how to maintain confidence out of the saddle, before stepping into it. Advanced  riders will accumulate more ride time, as they progress through the beginning steps of a lesson of grooming and tracking.
