Lessons filled with fun and learning
Whether you are a beginner just starting to learn to ride, or an experienced rider seeking to develop and improve your skills, Tri-Star Farm Riding School has a place for you! We teach private and group classes in English and Western. Our students range from just beginning to competitive, and from 4 years old to quite mature.
Our goal is to help each rider build skills and confidence, and to become an accomplished, correct, and safe rider. Theory is an essential plank of our curriculum. The ‘whys’ of riding, training, and horse behavior, are equally important to the ‘hows’.
Our classes are grouped based on the riders’ abilities and previous riding experiences. The small classes allow our instructors to offer individualized attention and our riders to develop at their own best pace. We provide assistance appropriate to each particular rider – from ‘leaders’ for beginning riders to videotape critique sessions for advanced riders.
Our riders learn to care for their lesson horses, and to groom, tack up, and untack before and after classes. Good horsemanship and foundational basics of riding are always thoroughly covered in every lesson!
Tri-Star Farm has a program to meet your needs and goals.
(Times shown for lessons are actual student riding time. Time spent on grooming, tacking and untacking is included at no charge.)
For all Equestrians – Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced
At Tri-Star Farm, we teach all students a solid foundation in the basics of riding. Hunter, Jumper, Dressage, and Pleasure riders all learn to use the balanced seat most appropriate for their preferred riding style. Horsemanship is an essential aspect of every lesson and students practice the basic responsibilities of catching, grooming, and tacking up.
