HORSEBACK RIDING LESSONS
Horseback Riding Lessons
Horseback Riding Lessons
from beginner through world championship levels in saddle seat, hunter seat, western and driving
Horses provide all of us with an opportunity to be passionate about a sport that is both athletic and emotionally engaging. An equine partnership teaches responsibility, empathy, patience, and trust. Riding improves focus, balance, and core strength while emphasizing teamwork and sportsmanship.
Whether you are a first-time rider or an accomplished equestrian polishing up for your next world championship, Cottonwood Creek Ranch has the expertise to guide you toward your goals. Our professional instructors approach teaching with kindness and positive reinforcement for both horse and rider. We realize that all students progress at different levels and adjust our lesson plans accordingly. Because horsemanship is much more than just riding, our students also learn to groom and tack their own horses and how to put them away after lessons. It makes for a better understanding of the horses and what it means to be a responsible caretaker of these noble animals. We view every riding lesson as an educational opportunity.
We have beautiful indoor and outdoor arenas for year-round riding and a string of safe, suitable lesson horses for all levels of ability. While many riders get their start around the age of five or six, we have coached students in the range of three years old to just shy of the century mark. We believe in pursuing dreams at any age.

SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE CONCERN.
All students must wear sturdy boots or sneakers and long pants. NO RIDER WILL BE ALLOWED TO RIDE IN SHORTS, CAPRIS, OR SANDALS. We do provide helmets if you do not personally own one that is approved for equine sports.

All riders under the age of 18 are required to wear a helmet when riding. While we provide helmets, many riders prefer to purchase their own.
When you first start taking lessons, any pair of long pants or jeans are recommended. Riders taking regular lessons should have riding pants to wear for every lesson.
Gloves are recommended for all riders. They help small riders hold the reins and prevent sore hands.
It is important that you wear closed-toed shoes during your lessons. Riders taking regular lessons should have riding boots with a heel and wear them for every lesson.
