Horsemanship Lessons Tell the Story of the Horse & Rider
Lessons at Oak Meadows are focused on comprehensive horsemanship – where safety is a priority, from routine care, grooming, groundwork games, and handling to riding and owning your own horse.
We teach a balanced seat in both Western and English disciplines and incorporate bareback work to improve the student's harmony with the horse Students will learn to build a partnership with their horse using the principles of Love, Language, and Leadership. The focus of every lesson is not only to help the student improve in his or her horsemanship skills but also to enjoy the experience of working and playing with horses.
Weekly lesson fees of $45 for group lessons and includes the use of the horse, tack, and grooming equipment. The student is asked to provide an ASTM/SEI certified riding helmet and shoes with a right-angle heel. School helmets are available for use until the student is able to obtain one for him/herself. Private lessons are $70 per session.
Our School Horses are specially selected for their dispositions and "Horsenalities" and go through extensive training before earning the badge of School Horse! We teach each student how to communicate with the horse and how to recognize the horse's communication back to them.
