Our Lesson Program
Meadowbrook Ranch’s lesson program strives to teach riders the fundamentals of horseback riding from the ground up. We teach our students how to take care of horses as well as how to be effective riders. Students learn the terminology of the tack, horse anatomy, proper grooming techniques, and develop lifelong horsemanship skills. We focus on beginning riders and give them a solid foundation so the rider can go in any direction they choose, whether it be anything from Western, English, Jumping, to Dressage.
Tiny Tot Lessons - Ages 3-5
These lessons focus on instilling confidence and a passion for horses in the young riders. The lessons are around 45 minutes in length so we don’t overwhelm the young brain.
The riders begin learning how to groom a horse, parts of the saddle, and basic riding fundamentals like steering and stopping. Safety around horses is a focal point of these lessons.
We have so much fun in these classes, and parents are often roped into some of the teaching, especially if being around horses is a new activity for the family.
Private Lessons - Kids and Adults
In these lessons, the rider will expand their equine knowledge and horsemanship skills. It does not matter if the student has had prior horse experience, beginners are always welcome! Private lessons are 60 minutes in length and include grooming and tacking up a horse in addition to the riding instruction.
We will spend time working towards the rider’s goals, whether they be just to walk and steer independently, or to go to the county fair and participate or place in a show.
We offer trail rides to our lesson students. The rider must demonstrate control of their horse by steering and stopping independently.
Our students are able to exchange a trail ride for one of their private lessons or they can schedule a trail ride in addition to their lesson.
Trail rides average an hour in length but can be scheduled for up to a 2 hour ride.
