Our “Earn Your Spurs” lesson program is designed for anyone who wants to learn the basics of riding a horse, horsemanship and trail etiquette. Horses are incredible and complex animals, we love and respect them and try to initiate the same in our students.
Learning about riding and horsemanship can be a lifelong process, and one can never say that they know everything. Our aim is to teach you enough to ride in a comfortable way and open the doors to the amazingly varied and interesting world of horses.
Riding is not a craft but an art. – Rudolf G. Binding
In small groups you can gain skills over a series of lessons. Some practice time will be in the arena, however, most exercises are on the trail in the beautiful setting of the foothills. Progress at your own pace through 3 levels and you will be ready to enjoy trail riding in the mountains, a Pack Trip or the Season’s Pass membership.
Our advise: Please allow practice time between Levels depending on your previous experience with horses. For example, if you start as a beginner, you should allow at least one practice session between Level 1 and 2 and at least two practice sessions between Level 2 and 3.
Practice Sessions: It’s hard to do your “homework” without a horse at home! Riding is a fun and rewarding sport but as any skill, it takes a bit to get good at it! The Earn Your Spurs Level course will give you a lot of information in one day, but everyone learns differently. In addition to the group sessions, we offer one-on-one Private Lessons or semi-private Group lessons. Those lessons can be booked just like an appointment any day of the week between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm. Evening lessons are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6.00 – 7.00 pm.
