Lessons are held at Hidden Hills Stables in our outdoor ring. We offer lessons to children 4 and older. We offer both private lessons and and semi-private (2-3 riders) lessons. We feel new riders learn best and safest when riding one on one or in semi-privates where they can receive personalized and individual instruction. Riders must wear an ASTM/SEI approved helmet, a hard soled shoe with a heel, and long pants in order to ride. We have helmets available to borrow for the first few lessons but do require students to purchase their own helmet.
30 minute private riding lesson: $55
45 minute semi-private (2-3 riders): $45
All of our riders learn the importance of caring for horses in addition to the fundamentals of riding. Students learn to groom and tack for their lesson and should arrive 20-30 minutes early to get their horse ready for the lesson. All grooming/tacking is supervised by a Hidden Hills staff member. Students typically spend about 1hr at the barn in total.
Students ages 4-5 must ride in private lessons, but private lessons are available to students of all ages. Semi-privates are open to students 6 and older who can tack up independently and steer independently. All new students must start with at least 1 private evaluation lesson.
Lessons are to be paid at the beginning of each month on a monthly payment schedule. All students receive a set lesson day/time and ride at least once per week.
With 24hr notice, a make-up riding lesson may be scheduled. All make-up lessons must be scheduled within 30 days of the missed lesson. Lessons cancelled within 24 hours will not receive a makeup lesson. Should a rider not show up to his or her lesson, without notifying Hidden Hills Stables, the lesson is forfeited and no make-up will be offered.
Hidden Hills Stables offers one time tune up rides, weekly bootcamp, and monthly training board. Caroline is available to travel for tune up rides, or ponies can be brought in for a week of boot camp or training board. For training board, both stall and field board is available.
Tune up rides at your farm: $50
