We specialize in beginner and intermediate riders; especially young riders interested in any style of riding including Western and English. Also, we love working with young people who are interested in having their own horse one day. Our instructors enjoy teaching the full spectrum of horse ownership.
Our lesson horses in partnership with our riding instructors enjoy helping riders learn basics commands through to more competitive riding such as barrel racing, trail courses, & gaming.
Lessons are available weekdays (primarily in the afternoon and early evening) and on weekends (primarily morning and early afternoon). Minimum age for lessons is 4 years old and the ability to follow instruction for right and left directions.
Lessons are 1 hour in length and include:
* grooming and horse preparation in the stall
* saddling with equipment from our tack room
* walking the horse on lead-line to the riding arena
* about 45 minutes of riding instruction
* returning to the barn stable
* unsaddling and returning equipment to the tack room
* saying “thank you and see you next time” to your lesson horse
At Silver Buckle Ranch, we believe that all riders need to understand basic horse care, individual responsibility, and communication skills as well as lessons for riding skills.
All riding students are required to wear a riding helmet (which we can provide) and close-toed shoes with sturdy soles (riding shoes or boots are preferred).
Cost: Private Lessons are $50
Payment can be made with cash, check (payable to Silver Buckle Ranch) or credit cards (with 5% added to cover our service charge).
To assure your particular lesson time is reserved just for you, we ask that lessons be paid in advance.
Scheduled lesson cancellation requires 24 hour notice.
