Horseback Riding

Riding Lessons for Children

**LESSONS ARE FOR children and families 8 years old and older**

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 at 8 years old or older working side by side with the horses learning about their nature, how to approach, halter and lead them. Once in the saddle, students will learn the methods and practices set forth by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA).

**We are currently creating waitlists for our Lessons, please reach out to the office to join our waitlist**

It is a great place to interact with so many animals, riding lessons, a fantastic site for birthday parties for all ages. If you have not stopped by for at least a visit, you are missing Tucson’s true gems.”
