Riding & Horsemanship
We are so grateful for all of our lesson students and training horses! As we improve our own riding, the horses improve too. Due to the increasing levels of our performance horses, we will have a limited number of beginner openings. Get on the schedule now to reserve your spot!
We are now accepting new student evaluations for our LaMoure customers at this time. Please message us online or email us at rawdesigns@icloud to confirm the schedule before booking.
Horseback Riding and Horsemanship lessons are available for ages 5 to adult. Beginning students learn independent balance, correct posture, and cues to move the horse. They will have the opportunity to try different styles of riding, both western and english. Intermediate to Advanced students will learn maneuvers on the horse in their chosen discipline, for example, pleasure, games (barrels), working cattle, jumping, and dressage. All students will learn how to communicate with the horse effectively, care for the horse, and build a relationship with it.
Students will have lessons both on the ground and in the saddle. Our program is a "whole horse" program. We value the horses that allow us to partner with them for a fulfilling experience and relationship as horsemen/women. As we gain better skills at riding, it is also important to learn how to communicate with, and care for the horses that we love. Students also gain life skills such as independence, problem solving, empathy, sportsmanship, partnership, communication and confidence.
Horses at RW Equestrian are well-trained performance horses that take subtle and correct cues from the rider. They are maintained to the highest standard for the safety and advancement of the student. Riding Lessons run from March to November as temperatures allow. Horsemanship lessons will take the place of riding in inclement weather, and winter opportunities will be available. Children’s lessons are generally scheduled in groups of 2-3 riders. Adults are generally private lessons.
