* Riding Lessons

Private Lessons: $140 for 4 lesson package

Semi-Private Lessons (up to 3 students): $100 for 4 lesson package All lessons are 1.5 hours in length.

•We offer riding lessons to all ages!

•A Volunteer Training Class is required before starting any lessons.

•There is a height and weight limit to be able to ride our horses. We may not be able to accommodate all riders. Most of our horses average around 15 hands in height. Anyone around 5’9” or taller, or weighing 180lbs or more cannot ride unless we have a horse 16 hands or taller. This is our general guideline but please talk to us if you are interested! Many factors go into making the final decision as to whether a horse and rider will fit each other.

•Lessons are not just about riding. We feel it is important to learn the responsibility, respect and care of horses. Having a horse involves time, commitment, and being engaged in all areas of their life and care.

•Each lesson will be a fun, educational class to learn the basics of riding. Each lesson will also include safety, basic horse handling, grooming, tacking and untacking, lunging, warm

up and cool down, care of equipment, basic horse care, and general barn duties.

•Lessons will be taught by Robin Veach Fitzgerald (Founder of 2nd Chance Youth Ranch).

Robin grew up with horses, showed as a teenager in WSCA and NSCA in all English and Western pleasure classes, as well as performance classes. She also spent 1.5 years riding with an Olympic trainer in Dressage.

Sarah loves to vault because it is a perfect combination of artistry, teamwork, and athleticism.

* Equine Assisted Learning

Experience something new about yourself, through horses. Experience activities and challenges that require problem solving, creative thinking, non-verbal communication, and team building. These challenges are all done with a horse, or horses. The participants learn about themselves, identify issues, process their feelings, behaviors and patterns, which leads to a solution oriented outcome.

Why horses?

Horses are very social animals. They do not like being alone, they are herd animals. They have defined roles within their herds as well as unique personalities, attitudes, and moods. Using horses provides vast opportunities for metaphorical learning. Horses become a powerful and effective tool when working with individuals or groups.

Who might participate in an EAL session?

One person, couples, families, small or large groups! You, your family, your youth group, your team, your employees, your business partners. Anyone who could benefit from working on communication and team-building skills. And so much more! Each session is totally unique to the person or people who attend so if this sounds interesting, please give us a call! We’d love to tell you more about how EAL could be a good fit for you or your group!
