What you'll learn in this sports & games lesson:

Here's your chance to learn to ride or improve your riding skills. The classes are taught in spacious indoor arenas by patient, experienced instructors. The horses have good dispositions & are experienced & predictable--perfect for beginners or experienced riders. 

You'll learn basic horsemanship including equipment, handling the horse on the ground, tacking, mounting & the fundamentals of control while in the saddle. Once mounted, you'll learn to walk, halt & turn the horse. Trotting, posting trot & putting the horse through a series of maneuvers at a walk & trot will also be taught. 

By the end of the class, students should feel comfortable with a horse & know the basics of handling & riding. If you've always wanted to learn to ride a horse, but never had the time or been close enough to a stable, this is your chance. The classes are small so you get individual attention.

Wear loose fitting pants & hard shoes with heels. Arrive early to 1st class. Approx. 40 minutes from City. Map & directions furnished upon registration.

Note: Location will be in Palos Hills. There will be a $75 fee payable to riding school
