Riding Lessons

Horse riding offers numerous benefits including developing core strength, improving coordination and balance, gaining confidence and body control, as well as many other often unseen benefits. Early lessons concentrate on rider balance, co-ordination and riding aids, while our more advanced lessons focus on furthering skills in the rider's chosen discipline.


If you or your child is new to riding, Rocking J Ranch can offer a number of different options which can introduce your child to the joy of riding in a safe but fun manner.

  Your child will start to learn very quickly how to control the horse on their own and maintain balance. They will learn how to start and stop and also how to use the reins and their body to steer the horse in the desired direction. They will also learn how to balance in the saddle through fun exercises!

 Our lesson program is closely tied to our Youth Equestrian Team, with Horse Leases and Riding Lessons being offered to our Team Members first, then any remaining time offered for public riding lessons.
