Lessons

At Rugged Cross Stables we have a lesson program to suit you, whether you’re wanting to learn to ride, improve your riding skills or start jumping and showing.

If you’re new to horses, you’ll not only learn to ride but you’ll learn horsemanship.  You’ll learn to understand how horses think, what motivates them and how to build a relationship with your horse that will be rewarding for the horse and you.  You’ll also learn about feeding, colours, sizes, different types or breeds of horses, and disciplines such as jumping, dressage, hunter, and others.

If you’re a more experienced rider you can improve your riding ability on one of our horses or if you have your own horse, you can trailer in for your lessons.

If you want to learn to jump so you can start showing hunter or jumper, our horses are all experienced jumpers and can help you learn.  When you’re good enough, chances are we’ll have a horse that you could start showing on.  We have lots of horses that can use the work so there’ll always be opportunities to ride for most riders with a little experience.

Our lessons are all private or semi-private.  The cost is $35.00 for a 50 minute lesson.  Our aim is to help you learn to appreciate horses and to find them as rewarding as we do.  We love our horses and love spending time with them and we hope that you will too.
