Private Lessons at Lone Star
Our lesson program is based on a whole-horse approach and is heavily based on an organization called Pony Club. We don't want to just teach riders, we want to develop "horse people." Thus our lessons are heavily based on riding but the students will also learn how to catch, halter, cross-tie, groom, tack, and un-tack horses. If time allows, students will also learn even more horse care information such as parts of the horse, how to bandage, take temperature, pulse, respiration, and much more!
To get started: we like for prospective students to come for a single lesson that will serve as an evaluation to make sure it is a good fit! If you decide it is what you are looking for, then we can enroll you in the lesson program!
For our beginner riders, everything is taught and supervised in one-on-one instruction. As the student becomes more competent, they will be given a chance to pass a basic test of grooming and tacking. With this achievement and acquired skill-set, students then to come to their lessons a little early in order to get their horse ready so we can have even more time for riding and other equine education. Beginners are strongly encouraged to take private lessons; being able to have the one-on-one time with an instructor is crucial to a good foundation of riding.
The initial evaluation lesson comes first and if you choose to continue, the following lessons will be tailored to the exact riding type you prefer.
