Due to Covid-19 restrictions as well as the barn fire that Hockley Hills School of Horsemanship has sustained we regret that we are unable to provide lessons at this time. We ask that you check in with us again after July 1st. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.
Hockley Hills School of Horsemanship offers lessons in the two most popular styles of riding, Western and English. Hour long lessons run year round and are available at flexible times to suit your busy schedule. Parents and friends can watch comfortably from a heated viewing room while enjoying fresh hot coffee. Lessons are offered to riders of all levels of ability and are structured to meet your area of interest. A large part of riding is the horse/rider partnership, working with the horse on ground is just as important as the riding, you develop body language skills and safety of yourself and the animal. Students are partnered with a horse that is best suited for them and through small group lessons they will build upon their knowledge and be challenged to bring their riding to the next level. This can range from the basic skills needed for recreational riding, to obtaining different levels of certification, to preparing you for the show ring.
