$49 for a 90-Minute Group Introduction to Horseback Riding ($100 Value)

Each group lesson consists of grooming, tacking, and general horse care, as well as the riding portion. Riders must arrive 10 minutes before the lesson and wear long pants and hard-soled closed-toe shoes or boots. Each student works with an instructor one-on-one throughout the 90 minutes, and lessons will move to an indoor arena in the event of inclement weather. Helmets and other equipment are provided.

Loftmar Stables

Since 1984, the professional, certified instructors at Loftmar Stables have passed their equine expertise on to students of all skill levels, helping them learn horsemanship principles or advanced skills. Captained by owner Janet Loftus Martin, the team starts beginner riders out with 30-minute private lessons that encourage speedier progression and build self-confidence, rather than thrusting novices into large group classes. Instructors give special attention to riders who might be scared to get on horses or have had bad experiences riding in the past, such as getting thrown out of saddles or being paired with horses on blind dates. All programs begin with learning to care for horses and equipment before moving on to more advanced riding instruction in hunt-seat equitation, jumping, or dressage. The extensive facilities—including massive lighted indoor and outdoor arenas as well as wooded trails—ensure that lessons take place even when the weather doesn’t cooperate.
