Lessons For Chidren 6 and Up

At Famesgate Stables, we offer riding lessons for children ages 6 and up. Children learn how to properly clean and tack up their lesson pony or horse, how to get on the pony/horse and how to steer. In the first few lessons, we build upon these skills until the rider understands and is comfortable with these skills.


The first lesson is used to evaluate any previous horseback riding knowledge/skill and is performed with the instructor in a one-on-one setting. This allows the instructor and the student to get to know one another in a fun and comfortable setting. Upon completion of the evaluation lesson, we will discuss moving the rider forward in their learning.

We welcome you to contact Famesgate for your first introductory lesson for free!
