WE OFFER A VARIETY OF CLASSES FOR EVERYONE

We Love To Help Everyone Reach Their Equestrian Goals


Learn To Ride with Our Gentle and Responsive Horses

For adults and children of all ages and abilities, we offer excellent instruction every day of the week with a well rounded variety of class types in a safe, fun, and friendly environment.

Class types include Ponies and Parents Class, Horse Handling Skills Class, Skills Testing, Private Riding Lessons, and Group Riding Lessons.
Descriptions and details of each class type are listed below.

Our team of caring individuals and school horses are very well qualified and motivated to educate students from beginners to the advanced.

We teach from the ground up, starting with safety, horse behavior, ground handling, grooming, horse care, tack and equipment. Then, as we move on, students can learn how to acquire a proper solid foundation of riding skills.

We strive to educate people on how they can develop harmony with the horse. We also offer training and opportunities for riders to ride at various show levels. FEC has its own series of Schooling Shows, here at our facility..

We can also take students to away shows as well. School horses are available for students to ride for both home and away shows. Lessons are offered daily.


PONIES AND PARENTS CLASS

An interactive education and experience for very young children


Our Lessons are Fun

Come learn the basics of horsemanship with your children, in a relaxed and fun learning environment!

Have your own pony for an hour, and get to know what ponies are all about!
Learn about pony behavior, safety, diet, grooming, equipment, movement, and get a pony ride during class.
This is not a riding lesson, so most of the class time will be handling the ponies on the ground.

This class is geared towards children who would like to experience ponies and horses, but may be too young to start riding lessons.
This is an excellent way to introduce your children (and parents, too) into the equestrian world.
Benefits to this type of class include:
Gain knowledge about horses, non intimidating setting, cost effective, and fun!.

This is a parent and child class, so parents must attend class alongside their child/children, and are required to STAY with their children and participate interactively at all times.

Cost is $25 per class per pony / horse. One adult is required for each pony / horse. Children can share one pony / horse..

Every Saturday from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.

To sign up, please call us at 303-666-7778 at least 48 hours before the class. Sign ups are on a per class basis. You can attend one class at a time, or as many as you would like to. Please talk with us about the dates you wish to attend.


HORSE HANDLING SKILLS CLASS

 

Make a Horse Your Best Friend

Knowing how to properly handle and connect with horses is a huge part of our program and what we believe in.
