BEGINNER LESSONS

What to know before your first lesson?

  • Wear proper footwear. 
    Proper footwear includes: closed toe shoes, with a small heel. 
    NO TENNIS SHOES OR FLIP FLOPS.
    If inappropriate footwear is worn we will have to do a non mounted lesson. 
    Cowboy boots, hiking boots, paddock boots, tall boots, and "riding style boots" are all acceptable

(If you'd like help finding riding wear for your student or yourself in your budget and places to buy, please ask.)

  • Bring a helmet if you have one! Must be a riding helmet. If you do not have one, we have plenty you can borrow. We can also help fit you and find one in your budget for purchasing your own.

  • Please wear jeans, leggings, or riding tights/ breeches. Shorts cause pinching in the thigh area when in the saddle, and it's not fun!

  • No talking/interrupting during lessons. We ask for a quiet learning environment so students can get the most out of their lesson. Parents are welcome to audit the lessons and ask questions after the rider is dismounted. We have seating for everyone.

  • Most importantly have fun and share your goals! FSE pride's themselves in building confident riders with great horsemanship!

Beginner lessons are for introduction of riding and the world of horses.

New rider beginner lessons include grooming, saddling/unsaddling, how to properly handle, care for the horse, and safety around horses. If you have ridden before, you will get the introduction of proper riding skills and showing before moving on to the advanced program.
