Riding Lessons

Learning how to ride should be fun, safe and difficult. Yes, it takes a lot of time to be a good rider. There are no short-cuts. It's quality time in the saddle. Good horsemanship includes learning the importance of proper horse care.  Ground work, desensitization to "scary" objects, and positive riding are key to developing trust. Don't put your horse in a situation that is unsafe or that asks too much of them at any point of training. You can't go wrong if you do what's best for your horse.
