Come ride with us
There are few things more enjoyable in life than tacking up your horse and heading out for a cool, summer evening ride.
Riding is exciting. Riding is rewarding. Riding is sport at its finest.
At Valley View Equestrian we focus on the relationship between horse and rider. Here it's all about the feeling of accomplishment you get after a ride where you and your horse really connected. At Valley View, you'll become a better horseback rider and a better horseman or horsewoman.
Head Instructor Kate Healey is a United States Pony Clubs C3-Dressage and HB certified instructor with more than 15 years of experience in equine sporting competition and more than nine years in horseback riding instruction.
Kate has extensive training in dressage, eventing and natural horsemanship. She has performed at the competitive level in these disciplines, as well as hunters and show jumping.
We also have two exceptional beginner instructors who have been Level 3 certified Equestrian Team members and have completed the Instructor Certification Program at Valley View.
At Valley View we offer a variety of disciplines that give the riders the opportunity to specialize their riding skill sets. We teach:
- Show Jumping
- Natural Horsemanship
Private Lessons $30-$50
The fun starts here, where it's just the rider, the horse and the instructor. Our individualized horseback riding lessons program is modeled after the nationally recognized USPC system. Riders learn safety, horsemanship and riding. Through the program they'll also learn life skills such as discipline, determination, teamwork, goal-settting and hard work.
The typical rider takes a 45 minute private riding lesson every week at a scheduled time. Riders are trained on every aspect of horsemanship, including how to catch, lead, groom, tack and untack their horse. These fundamentals are an important part of becoming a well-rounded horseman or horsewoman.
Students ages 7-18 are eligible for private riding lessons. We also provide our highly trained and extremely safe lesson horses for a $10 per use fee.
We are currently booked up for private lessons, but are accepting students onto our short waiting list.
