About Horseback Riding and Ground Work Lessons
■ Lessons at Partridge Horse Hill are focused on your goals – if you want to do a lesson on ground work, western games, jumping, or trail tasks we can tailor the activities to suit your needs.
■ We have a variety of well trained lesson horses – some of them are international champions and movie stars!
■ We have an indoor arena with dust free footing, a heated viewing room for parents to watch, a variety of coaches, and lots of jumps, obstacles, and fun equipment to use to keep lessons interesting and fun. Please note the riding arena is not heated in the winter where you ride/tack up so please dress for the weather.
■ Students have lots of opportunities – to help at the farm, attend shows, come to social events (Christmas parties, movie nights, etc), take part in clinics from world renowned clinicians, and more.
■ We promote bonding and connecting with horses – we use positive reinforcement and teach how to work with horses on the ground and in the saddle. The horse’s well being is always considered for the activities we do.
■ Tasks are suited to your level. For example if you want to work on jumping but are new to jumping then you might be going over poles, practicing steering patterns and learning the jumping position (two point). As you progress we can raise the jumps.
■ Lessons can be booked for any age level, but parents of young/small children (under 7 years) should be available during the lesson to assist with the lesson (for supervising, spotting the child on the horse, etc) as needed for safety.
■ We teach “the whole package” – Part of the lesson is getting the horse tacked up, groomed and ready to ride. This includes getting the horse from the field and getting equipment out. Once you have learnt how to do this by yourself (or with the help of your parents), you can come before the lesson to get the horse ready.
■ We specialize in jumpers, extreme cowboy/obstacle challenges, liberty, bridleless, and pleasure riding. We offer showing or schooling opportunities to students for jumpers, obstacles and extreme cowboy.
■ If you are booking a group or semi private lesson, you need to have your group member(s) already arranged. When booking please let us know the member(s) of your group.
■ Lesson Types – A semi private lesson means 2 people/horses, private means 1,
and a group means 3 or more people/horses.
