Each person will be taught how to groom and care for their mount before and after the lesson. We teach adults as well as children from Beginning to Intermediate riders. Students are encouraged to show when they are ready but it is not a requirement. Competitions are a team effort at Jumping H Farm. It is a way for students to get together and compete to enjoy what they have learned. We stress personal goals in the show ring and want everyone to have a good time.
What to expect during your first lesson
When you arrive
You will be introduced to your mount
Shown how to halter and lead your mount
Safely put him/her in the cross ties
Correct grooming and cleaning of feet
Learn how to correctly saddle and bridle your mount
Please allow for at least 1 ½ hours for the first few lessons. In the beginning it takes time to learn these skills. Actual riding time will be 45 minutes (sometimes longer) up to an hour. As you become more efficient and quick at grooming and tacking, you will have more time to ride during the lesson. I have found that some students enjoy grooming and being around horses as much as the actual ride so you are welcome to brush your mount to your heart's content after the lesson.
******* PLEASE NOTE ********
If you are starting lessons at Jumping H Farm with previous riding experience. Your current lesson will be based on your previous experience.
