Semi-private lessons involve two–three riders, while group lessons involve four–six. Potential students call ahead of time to schedule an appointment and indicate their prior riding experience, so that they may be placed with riders with similar backgrounds. Each lesson includes time to lead horses to the arena and back to their stalls. Group lessons for beginners will be held regularly on Sundays at 4 p.m. and Mondays at 6:30 p.m., though more can be scheduled to meet the demand.
Reddemeade Equestrian Center
Since 1984, the crew of trained instructors at Reddemeade Equestrian Center have taken time out of their own competitive schedules to teach students horseback riding. Each instructor boasts certification from the Reddemeade Instructor Training School, which allows them to conduct horseback lessons in the English style of riding in accordance with the standards of the British Horse Society. Students receive their instruction atop trained and patient school horses inside a large indoor ring or one of several outdoor rings that grace the center’s 44 acres of rolling Maryland farmland.
