Horsemanship Riding Programs

 

Royal Ridges Retreat provides a horsemanship program which addresses safe handling as well as riding and care of the horse. Lessons and classes include fellowship time and horse science. Fellowship time includes prayer, discussion and topics relating the Bible to horsemanship.

Riders learn safe, productive ground handling skills and become responsible for grooming and saddling their horse. Ride time begins with safety and confidence then progresses along with the rider. At Royal Ridges, we stress communication and a relationship with the horse.

Lessons are available in 10-week terms: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each term must be paid in full before beginning lessons.
