I offer riding lessons and lessons in basic horsemanship. You can choose what you want to do from arena riding, trail obstacle, trail riding, and you can ride Western or English.
Private horseback riding lessons – $45 an hour
Group horseback riding lessons – $40 an hour
Trail riding lessons for intermediate to advanced riders – $25 an hour (minimum 2 hours maximum 4). These lessons are for people who want to learn to ride on the trails, and have already been taking basic riding lessons here on the ranch. You can bring your own horse, or borrow one from the ranch.
Flying Duchess Ranch Riding Packages
Riding Packages are available for riders who have taken several lessons at the ranch and are above the very beginner level. Packages are month to month. You can ride using any of the ranch facilities. Call in advanced to reserve a specific horse. Ride any time from 9am until sunset. Western and English saddles available. The hours of riding time you have depend on the package. All available horses are ridden at least once a week by an instructor to make sure that they maintain their training.
