Monthly Training Packages

These packages are for riders who desire regular progressive sessions. Horses and riders should be reasonably fit for any of these packages. All training packages are set up on a regular weekly schedule and are priced with the intention that the occasional session will be missed due to shows or clinics. Make up sessions will be as needed and at my discretion. Owners are welcome and encouraged to watch any training sessions.

A  1x private lesson per week (4+ per month)  -  $250/Month
B    2x a week rides or group lessons (8+ per month) - $300/Month

*Group lessons allow riders to learn from others (in watching, listening, or discussing). The main purpose of this work is to provide LESS coddling to the emerging rider/trainer and create more bonding of the horse and rider team. Your horse is thrilled for the companionship of other horses. Your instructor is available for critique and watching you to see which skills are solid and which need further refining. Everyone wins.

Group Schooling happens in varied ways. It may take place as a standard group lesson where all participants work the same movements and figures following in a line. It could morph into a quadrille type session where the horses are asked to work as pairs. Group Schooling could also be slightly less regimented…where a small number of riders enter the arena in 30 minute increments, some warming up on their own while others are schooled by the instructor. Finally, it could happen that all horses start at the same time (as a regular group) and each rider is given a separate program to work on independently while the instructor oversees everyone.

Prices subject to change.
