Group and Private Lessons

In order to sign up for group classes, all students need to take at least one private lesson to access the skill level of the rider. We do our best to schedule similar levels and ages within the same class as much as possible.

Group lessons are structured in a way where we teach a particular curriculum each session. We use exercises, drills and riding patterns to teach the elements needed to execute skills and continue learning.

Private lessons are focused on addressing a particular challenge or goal.

Our teaching is based on the principles of western dressage. We have an insulated indoor arena to ride in the colder months and an outdoor arena when the weather is pleasant.

group lessons:

We structure our lessons in smaller groups of 3 riders in an hour long class. This size allows students to have more one-on-one attention and have independent time to work on an exercise during their ride. In order to sign up for group lessons, students are required to take at least one private lesson to assess the skill level of the rider. One make up class allowed per 6 week session.


$70 per 1 hour session, $55 per 30 minute lead line lesson

    Special needs riders

    While Red Gate Riding does not currently have the ability to offer recreational horseback lessons adapted for individuals with disabilities, we can assist you with finding the right facility for your specific needs. PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) International is a great resource to locate local facilities with trained and certified instructors that are able to accommodate and instruct riding for those with disabilities.
