So here you are. It's your first Horse Riding lesson. Ready to saddle up? You're at the right place. Nothing excites us more than the first riding lesson an adult beginner rider takes! We LOVE beginners!
At Harmony Ranch we specialize in providing adult beginner horseback riding lessons in a safe, comfortable environment. And we recognize that everyone learns at a different pace, so we provide you with as much time as you need.
Our Horse Riding Lesson Program For Adult Beginners will provide you with a solid basis from which to grow and become a competent, safe rider.
Do you know the 5 most important things a beginner should learn? We do... so here's what you'll learn as an Adult Beginner at Harmony Ranch.
Like so many other adults, this may be your first encounter with a horse EVER or your first encounter after a long absence. Maybe you rode as a kid and remember the falling off part the most! Don't worry, we take the time and care here to really teach riders "Horse Behaviour 101". In other words... we teach a bit of "horse psychology". Each beginner lesson is 75 minutes long.
Our instruction includes horse handling on the ground, grooming, tacking, leading and lots of just getting really comfortable and safe around the horses. Riders learn the correct basic position, and an introduction to leg aids, rein aids and body control (yours - not the horses'!).
Usually at the end of a month (4 to 6, 75 minute lessons), riders can get their horses groomed and tacked on their own, have the basics of control and steering at the walk and have begun the jog and posting trot. Some students will be ready for an introduction to the lope.
Lessons progress according to each rider's comfort and safety level… there's no pushing here… ever!
For beginner riders we usually stick to the indoor arena until the basics are solid and the rider feels confident. Our beginners' lessons are longer to ensure a high quality, safe learning experience and are offered on a private and semi private basis only. Sorry... at this level you need our full attention so group lessons are not for you quite yet.
What will I learn in your Horse Riding Lesson Program For Adult Beginners that will prepare me to move to the next level of instruction?

Saskia, it is so amazing the way you rescue and take on horses in need and give them more life then they could have ever imagined. It was so stressful
