Private lessons are available 7 days a week with a WRA qualified instructor.

Lessons are 30 minutes long. Longer lessons can be arranged.

The majority of our lessons are riding lessons (Saddle Seat, Hunt Seat & Western), however lessons can also be given to cover grooming, care, bandaging, driving, halter, showmanship or any topic the student wishes. (Exception - We do not teach any form of jumping)


Available 7 days a week. We will do our best to schedule semi-private lessons when asked. If students cancel and only one student is available the lesson automatically becomes a 30 minute private lesson.

Semi-Private lessons are 45 minutes long and generally consist of 2 or 3 riders.

  • Exceptions: When severe weather is present. 
    Definition of Severe weather is: Sirens have sounded, KFDI has a severe weather alert/warning.
  • Lessons not canceled with 24-hour notice will be charged.
