At Life is Good we offer an extensive horseback riding lesson program appropriate for those just starting their horseback riding careers, the seasoned rider, and everyone in between. We have several lesson horses in our program, and we always offer the option of trailering your own horse for on-site lessons.
We offer lessons year-round in our lighted indoor!
We offer both private and semi-private lessons (2 riders per lesson). Life is Good does not offer group lessons of more than 2 riders. It is a personal philosophy that personalized instructing is the key to providing our clients with the most beneficial experience, and we prefer to be able to structure lessons to meet each rider's individual needs. Our goal is to create well-rounded horseman, whether it be in an English or Western discipline.
~Gift Certificates are available for up to 5 lessons~
We encourage anyone considering lessons to give us a call to set up a farm visit. Come meet our horses, meet us, and see the farm!
