Riding Lessons
.
​Hi, my name is Lisa Hoteling and I am the proud owner of Harmony Hill Ranch. 

I have over 30 years of equine experience.  Horseback riding has been my main hobby throughout my life. I had the pleasure of showing in horse competitions for over 15 years. I also taught in public schools for ten years and coached two sports during that time.  I still ride and enjoy teaching young people all about horses.

I would encourage you to read "The benefits of horseback riding" on the Tab titled Benefits.

Here are some information about our lesson program.

Youth riders--9-18 years old

We offer riding lessons to beginners and intermediate riders. English is our primary style of riding. However, we try to explore other styles such as western pleasure, trail riding, and barrel patterns.

1.  Lessons are weekly.  Once you have a day and time slot, we encourage a monthly commitment from you.  Your child will learn and develop much better when they attend weekly.  Lessons are in a group setting of 2-4 riders.

2.  Payment--You pay on the first lesson of the first week for that entire month. Cost-- $160 for four weeks or $200 for five weeks.  Depending on the month, you might pay for 4 weeks or five weeks.
Riding lessons are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Usually 4:30 pm. Times sometimes fluctuate depending on the time of year.
Email Lisa for availability. 

3.  Cancellation Policy--a 24 hour notice is required to receive credit. You have the choice to schedule another time to ride on another day.  If you cancel the day of your lesson no credit is given.  
4. Weather--if the weather is too hot, windy, or too cold, we will reschedule the lesson on another day that works better. (This doesn't happen very often due to our indoor arena)

PonyPals--ages 4-8 years old

These lessons are super great for developing body strength and awareness! Riding skills and creative games keep these kids coming back for more! We have super gentle horses. Instructor led, private lessons.
