Grovespring Farm offers quality hunt-seat equitation riding instruction, beginner through advanced levels, for people of all ages.
The lesson program is designed to produce well-rounded, educated riders. Instruction begins on the lunge line. More advanced riders will develop skills through extensive flat work, combinations and courses both in and out of the ring. Trail riding and uneven terrain work are incorporated into the instruction. Horse care and ground work are also a part of the lessons.
Group Lesson – $160 a month for four group lessons. A group consists of approximately 6 riders and is a two hour time block. The first 30 minutes is spent grooming and tacking the horse, then students ride for an hour and finally use the last 30 minutes to untack and properly put their mount away. Riders must be able to “go, stop and steer” somewhat before joining a group lesson.
Semi-Private Lesson – $45 – This is a lesson with two or three students and lasts approximately one hour.
Private Lesson – $60 for a 45 minute time block. This includes learning to groom and tack for beginners in order to ready them for group lessons. More advanced students may take private lessons for more individual attention to advance their skills more quickly.
Practice Ride – $20.
