Riding Lessons

At Rugged Cross Stables, we believe that horsemanship doesn’t start at the mounting block. We pride ourselves on teaching everything that goes into the daily care of a horse. In our lessons, the student will be able learn how to go to pasture and catch their horse, all aspects of grooming, saddling, along with riding.

Our lesson program was established in 2018 and has since reached hundreds of kids and adults. With almost 20 lesson horses in various sizes, levels, and disciplines, we are able to teach all riding abilities from beginner to advanced, including riders that are interested in reaching the competitive level. Please note, the minimum age for riding lessons is 7.
