Lessons are scheduled ahead of time and most often on a weekly basis. I typically start new riders in private lessons on a lunge line.  They will stay on the lunge line until they are comfortable steering and stopping from the walk and trot, and posting at the trot.  After that they are ready and able to go into group lessons.  Beginner group lessons have no more than four riders of similar abilities.  The more advanced groups may have more than four.  

The cost of lessons is $35.00 for the 1/2 hour private lessons or the hour group lessons.  Private lessons for more advanced riders are $45.00.
