Riding Lessons

Jane Turner specializes in teaching Equitation, the art of horsemanship and riding horses.  Equitation is the development of a correct riding position and use of aids for the purpose of communicating effectively with the horse to achieve their goals. Riders learn correct equitation from their first lesson.  New riders begin in private lessons to ensure they get the continuous feedback necessary to develop good skills and habits, and to prevent the development of bad habits.  Once a good position and basic aids are established, so the rider is able to control their horse independently, they are allowed to join a small group lesson.  

Jane teaches riders of all levels.  She has riders who she has taught from their first lesson who are now working towards being trainers themselves.  They have had success in the show ring, from Leadline to Pony Finals to the Equitation Division.   

Riding Lessons are available on our carefully selected, well trained school horses and ponies, or on your own.   Our horses and ponies receive the best possible care.  We only use the highest quality tack and equipment to ensure the comfort and safety of horse and rider

All lessons will be taught by head trainer Jane Turner or one of her assistant trainers. All training rides will be performed by Jane or one of her assistant trainers. Jane oversees the planning of lessons and training rides she is not personally leading.  
If you would like one of our developing riders to ride a pony/horse for you, they will always be supervised by a trainer and you will be charged a standard lesson rate. 

From time to time, we are lucky to be able to ride off the property into some of Loudoun County’s most beautiful hunt country. All trail rides are led by one of our trainers and are counted as a one hour lesson. Trail rides are only available to current students who are considered advanced enough for trail riding by Jane. If you wish to go on a longer trail ride with one of our trainers, rates can be discussed!
