Frequently Asked Questions

Q: At what age is ideal to start my child in lessons?
As soon as they show the interest!  Generally 7 or 8 is a perfect age to start weekly lessons, private or with a buddy.  I have taught children as young as 3 in lessons.  The length, type and frequency of the lesson is really dependent on the child until the age of about 7 or 8.  I offer a flexible lesson plan for beginners and young children to foster their love for horses in a safe, educational environment.  For some this means shortening the actual time on the horses back, and lengthening the time spent on the ground with the horse learning the safety principles, grooming techniques and reading the horses body language.  Rather than a strict weekly schedule over a long period of time, I would recommend booking shorter lessons for students under 7 that can be coordinated with the rest of their busy daily lives, as well as the weather (SEE “Package Offers” under Pricing).  Please call me for more information, or to set up a time to meet directly and discuss your child’s needs.   

Q: Do you teach adults as well?
Lindsay: Absolutely, I have quite a few lesson students who started out as parents of my younger lesson students and some who are in their 50’s and 60’s.  Beginner adult lessons start out slowly, and I would highly recommend at least a few private lessons before leaping into a semi-private lesson for adults. We work on strengthening and some flexibility exercises as well as understanding equine psychology.  Adults with experience enjoy the time to reconnect with horses in a comfortable environment.
