Equine Kingdom offers various services to the equestrian community through the
form of horseback riding lessons.
Most riding schools charge comparable pricing for an hour riding lesson. This
usually consists of 15-20 minutes at the beginning of your lesson to prepare your
horse, a 30 minutes lesson or so, and another 15-20 minutes at the end to finish
up with your horse. Here at Equine Kingdom, we offer the ENTIRE HOUR of riding time
- any extra time you spend before or after your lesson is FREE! We greatly encourage
our riders to come early and stay late to gain extra horse/learning time!
Children and adults will learn to:
- Ride correctly
- Groom a horse
- Feed/care for a horse
- saddle/bridle a horse
- ride on trails
- show a horse
- and much, much more!
You'll learn to groom your horse, put on a saddle and bridle quickly and efficiently,
mount and dismount your horse, turn your horse correctly, walk, trot, and canter,
jump small jumps, maneuver a course of poles, judge distances, and much, much more!
Lessons are always different, always fun, and always something new to learn! You
won't regret taking lessons with us!
