Horses are a great way to have fun outdoors, while learning about these prey animals. Riding creates confidence among other life lessons.
What You'll Get
Intro to horses and Let’s Learn about ponies classes may have 1-3 participants. Those classes do not Include riding a horse. Please wear long pants and a boot with a heel. I have safety helmets, it is a requirement that they are worn.
Private lessons include getting the horse, grooming, tacking up, then riding. Lesson will be based on experience. Please let us know when you schedule the lesson how much, if any, horse and riding experience you have.
Intro to horses is appropriate for all ages that would like to learn about the nature of the horse, how it’s survived 60 million years, and how they communicate with us, and their herds.
Let’s Learn about Ponies is catered to children ages 5-12 that have had no experience with horses. Discussion is held while students are being taught how to properly groom a pony. And of course, we do have lovely pony glitter!

About LKAcademy of Horsemanship
We believe in teaching great Horsemanship from the ground up. Handling horses on the ground is just as important as riding. Our teaching style uses a unique lesson plan system, so the student, teacher and parent all know what the student is accomplishing, and where they are headed and what they need to do to get there. Children are awarded helmet covers to designate their level. The instructor, Loretta Arey, is certified by the American Riding Instructors Association. She has been teaching in the northern VA/MD area since 2008. Loretta has extensive knowledge of horse training, through natural Horsemanship methods, has had Liberty training by the infamous Carolyn Resnick, author of Naked Liberty, and has won several grand champion high point awards at jumper shows. She also loves to compete in judged Pleasure rides and limited distance or competitive trail rides.
