Lessons are available 6 days a week, 8am-8pm (at the instructors discretion) at Winter Oaks Stable located in Shady Shores, Texas.

We have lesson horses for beginner riders though intermediate.  

All riders are required to provide their own boots with a correct heal, proper riding attire and a helmet. Riding equipment is provided. Riders must show up 20-30 minutes before their lesson to groom, tack up and warm up. You should expect to be at the barn between an hour and a half and 2 hours. Riders are also responsible for tack cleaning and proper cooling out, untacking and care of their horses.

Our riding system is based on the classical approach to riding using the Training Scale. Students will be encouraged to learn safe, sympathetic horsemanship, while developing a correct seat and balance. Correct riding techniques are essential for competition or simple leisure riding. Beginners will learn all aspects of horsemanship including tacking up, care and proper riding at the walk, trot and canter. More advanced students enjoy a wealth of knowledge to perfect their current techniques, help with problem horses or work with young horses.

We are primarily focused on Classical Dressage and Jumping sports. All disciplines are encouraged to participate and learn the correct basics.

24hr CANCELLATION REQUIRED OR YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR MISSED LESSON.  CREDIT CARD PURCHASES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.
