English Riding Lessons

Riding lessons are offered for any skill level or age from beginner to advanced, young children to seniors. Classes are offered in small groups of not more than 4 riders with similar skill levels to enhance the fun of learning. Lessons are approximately one hour long. Riders also learn and practice tacking up and untacking, horse grooming and general horse and tack care.

All riding lessons are under the direct supervision of an Equine Canada certified coach or a Horse Council BC (HCBC) insured coach.

Private lessons can be booked if time permits by personal arrangement with Jenny Payne.

Monthly Program

Fees: $ 200.00 per month fully paid in advance if using a school horse; 
           $ 180.00 per month fully paid in advance if using your own horse.

Four lessons are scheduled for the same day/time every week in a specific calendar month to fit into a busy fixed work schedule or school routine offering predictable consistency. Lessons are non-transferable. This program is best for beginners, recreational riders and beginning competitors. Call for information about  available lesson times.

Lessons that are not paid and booked as a full monthly package in advance of the start of the month are considered “Drop-in Lessons.” 

Drop-in Lessons

For the busy client that would like to ride but cannot commit to a regular weekly schedule. Availability of drop-in lesson times is subject to prior scheduled lessons. Phone for availability.

Fees: $ 55.00 per lesson if using a school horse; 
           $ 45.00 per lesson if using your own horse.

Custom Program

All of our riding lesson programs can be tailored to your individual needs. For example, six lessons per month. Prices will be adjusted accordingly. Call us to plan what works best for you!


**** Missed lessons are lost lessons. Due to the very small class sizes we are unable to provide “make-up” classes if a class is missed without notice.

Please be sure of your availability for the full calendar month when you sign up for classes. Notice of cancellation must be received at least 24 hours before a missed class in order to allow rebooking. Postponing a lesson is only possible within the month in which the lesson is postponed. Fortunately most months have a partial fifth week in which this can be done.****
