Riding lessons teach the rider to have better balance and control.  The rider's goal may be just to learn to ride for pleasure, or to go to shows, jump, do a dressage test. Riding is fun, teaches coordination and concentration, and is great exercise for healthy people of all ages. Our students ride for recreation and in competitions. They range from 5-68 years young.

We have two on-site coaches/trainers available:

Cheryl Spencer, our resident CHA certified level 3 professional coach has been teaching students of all ages for 20+ years. She has trained both in Canada and in Europe, with a focus on dressage and eventing, and has attended coaching clinics for the past 20 years. She is also certified to teach western lessons.

Lyndsay Russell, our head counsellor, barn manager, coach and trainer has trained with many top coaches. A rider for more than ten years, she has has been coaching and training for 6 years, and has been a camp favourite at both locations. Her friendly but firm approach is popular with young riders and parents. She especially delights in riders wishing to jump!

As well, we have private lessons, visiting coaches and clinicians for the serious competitor.

Students can follow a program to receive official CHA rider levels after written and practical testing.

We also offer Therapeutic riding lessons for children and adults.

Weekly riding lessons are available for children ages 6 and up, and adults on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays to accommodate most schedules including shift work. Our lessons run year 'round.

Hands-on time with the horses.
What could be better?

Riding lessons improve fitness, confidence and overall well-being.

Group lessons are great for young students who benefit from the support of peers and learning by example.

All riders must sign a waiver (or if under 18, their parents must sign). Click here to print it off.

What to wear:

  • All riders must wear a proper riding helmet. While we have some helmets in stock, it is recommended that regular riders purchase their own helmet after the first few lessons.

  • Riders must bring and wear low-heeled footwear, with a defined heel- 1/2''- 1 1/2". 

  •  If the rider doesn't have breeches, we recommend that riders wear loose-fitting pants with some stretch i.e. track pants, tear-away pants, leggings. 

  • Gloves are also recommended, especially for children.  Stretchy dollar store gloves will protect little hands from the reins.

*Riding helmets, apparel, horse treats etc. may be purchased through Harrowsmith Horse Country.*
