Luton's comfortable, indoor arena allows lessons to run in all weather. Skilled mentors instruct riders 5 years old and older in western, hunt-seat, or saddle-seat techniques. Clients can bring their own horse or use one of the well-mannered schooling horses, which they’ll also learn to groom, tack, and untack before and after the lesson. Riders are required to wear heeled boots and long pants, though a helmet will be provided.
Luton Training Center
With more than 20 years in business, head coach Lisa Luton-Hodges has seen her share of regional and national equestrian champions. As recently as 2011, she led the Williamston High School equestrian team all the way to a reserve state championship. Luton Training Center is the place where such journeys begin. Riders of all skill levels learn the basics of western, hunt-seat, and saddle-seat techniques amid the splendor of Michigan's rolling hills, or in the 150'x70' indoor arena for when skies are full of rain or the kind of clouds that terrify horses. The facility also offers boarding and training services.
