Lessons
In the midst of the pandemic we have had to make adjustments to our favored way of doing things.
For the time being, until deemed safe to do otherwise, all lessons will be 30 minute private lessons.
At the discretion of the instructor, riders who are capable will be able to come early and stay after their lesson to groom and tack/untack their horse.
Scheduling
We teach lessons Mondays through Saturdays,
with morning, afternoon, and evening times available
with one of our fabulous, Massachusetts licensed and insured instructors.
After your introductory lesson we can find a day and time that fit your needs.  Riders come a minimum of once per week at the predetermined time.
We operate on a monthly tuition system.
Tuition for the month of lessons is due at or before the first lesson of the month.  
Pricing Effective Sept. 1st, 2019.

What to Wear and Bring??

Due to Covid19, we are no longer able to lend out helmets, boots, pants, or brushes.  Riders are now required to provide their own.  Failure to bring your own helmet and/or boots to your lesson will result in forfeiting your lesson.

Please note that appropriate footwear is required in the barn and on the farm property for rider and non-riders (parents, caregivers, siblings, friends, etc.).  This includes riding boots (paddock boots) and closed toed shoes.  No flip-flops or open toed shoes allowed, for safety reasons.

Ideal riding gear includes:

  • an ASTM-SEI Certified/Approved riding helmet (no bike helmets)

  • Breeches or Jodhpurs pants 

  • a t-shirt or polo with sleeves (please, no tank tops)

  • Paddock Boots or Tall Boots (Absolutely NO SNEAKERS)

  • Gloves and a Crop

Additionally, dress for the outside elements and temperature.  Although we have a lovely insulated indoor arena, our barn and arena are not climate controlled.  Also wear sunscreen and bring water during the warmer months.

Alternatively, jeans can be substituted for breeches, and a boot with a small heel can be worn in place of proper riding boots.  Please, no sneakers for riding.  

We can lend you a helmet if you have yet to purchase one.

Why shouldn't I ride in sneakers?

The heel on paddock or tall boots keeps the stirrup iron from slipping too far back on the heel or ankle, and getting stuck.  Sneakers lack a heel and pose a safety hazard.

Why should I ride in gloves, even in the summer?

Gloves provide better grip on the reins, as well as protection from blisters.  

Where should I go to purchase proper riding gear?

There are several places with fabulous customer service.
