*Paddock boots and half-chaps are recommended
*Riders are encouraged to arrive 15-30 minutes before the riding lesson to groom and tack up, and allow time after the lesson to hose off the horse. Jill believes all students should learn and be involved in basic horse care.
*All lessons are considered semi-private (3 riders or less). Although efforts are made to keep everyone’s ride individual unless otherwise required, some overlap may occur. Most riders choose a weekly or biweekly time that works best for their schedule.
~Pricing~ All payments are due at the time of lesson:
$40 for 1/2 hour beginner equitation lesson
$65 for 45 minute dressage lesson
