Group Lessons.................................................$20.00

A group lesson consists of a 1 hr. lesson with a group of students (1-10 students) with various levels of riding experience and 1 instructor. The lesson will cover the fundamentals of how to ride so you can get started on your own.

Private Lessons

A private is just that, student and instructor alone for 1 hr. The student will get one on one instruction tailored to the students riding experience, beginner to advanced. This is for the rider that wants to get the most out of his/her lesson or work on a specific part of their riding.

Semi-Private Lessons

2 riders, 1 hr...................$75.00
each additional rider .......$25.00
each additional hour per rider .........$25.00
