Our goal at Carousel is to teach you not only to be a safe and confident rider but to also teach you all aspects of good horsemanship. We start all of our beginners out in private lessons until they are able to groom, tack, and ride to a proficient level before moving onto group lessons. Quality time spent on riding basics and horse care will allow you to become a well-rounded horse person. There is always something new to learn in our quest to become true partners and (as they say) dance with a horse.
Lessons are scheduled Tuesdays through Sundays. You may start at any time during the year. After eight weeks of lessons, there will be a down week so that make-ups can be scheduled. Payment is to be made at the beginning of each eight-week time period.
Private lesson: $400 for eight weeks
Group lesson: $360 for eight weeks
