Riding Lessons for Children & Adults

Lessons at TRAK involve more than just riding. We believe in order to be safe around horses it is very important to understand the “nature of a horse”. Lessons start with children 8 or older working side by side with the horses learning about their nature, how to approach, halter and lead them. Once mounted, students will learn the methods and practices set forth by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA).

Are you ready to become a TRAK Riding Student?
