Horseback Riding Lessons at Any Age

We were really lucky to find a local stable that would allow Ashley to take horseback riding lessons at the age of four.

Her first (8) lessons were a series of classes that provided an introduction to horsemanship (in addition to riding lessons), including learning how to be safe around horses and how to care for horses.

This is now her second year of lessons now and they focus more on riding. She has learned a lot and really loves going!

Most importantly the lessons have taught the responsibility of taking care of horses. Ashley would love to have her own horse someday. By taking lessons that expose her to the care of horses, it is preparing her for the huge responsibility down the road.
