Ages 7 to Adult - approx. 30 min. Private Lessons$300/month (Click for Evaluation Lesson Registration)
            Lesson includes grooming/tacking/basic mounted skills/untacking.
           Your first few lessons will focus on more grooming, once a rider learns grooming/tacking the lesson will spend                         more time on riding. As riders become more independent with grooming/tacking they may arrive early to                         groom/tack.
           All riders will need to obtain paddock boots, helmet & grooming tote.
           Riders in these lessons should also attend our horsemanship classes for additional grooming & horse care instruction.

Equine Therapy Time (including adaptive lessons)  $25
        UNMOUNTED sessions involving grooming, grazing, bathing, in hand arena work. 
        Equine therapy time is similar to a practice ride but is unmounted. 
        This program is for riders looking to spend time with horses on the ground and have had at least 8 lessons (at GES).
        Riders can stay in this program without taking regular lessons as long as they sign up for a min. of 2 therapy times                       per month.
        Adaptive riders looking for lessons START in this program and may move to riding once acclimated to horses.
