Beginner Lessons:

 

For students who are new to the equestrian field After Hours Farm offers a one on one approach to ensure the student learns proper horse etiquette and safety. All students are required to have proper footwear and a helmet at all times. Helmets may be borrowed from the farm for lessons. However, it is strongly recommended that each student purchase their own helmet once the decision has been made to continue riding lessons. For an example of a first lesson and what to expect please click the link below. You will also need to sign a liability waiver before your first lesson. You can do so by clicking the link below and printing off a form to bring with you to your first lesson. If you are unable to print the form don't worry please let me know and I will have one ready for you at your first lesson.
