Q:

30 minutes is not very long. Can two be used together? Cheryl

Cheryl W.  asked on  Mar 22, 2013

A:

The lessons is a full hour of learning to groom, put on equimpment and the actual ride time is 30 minutes - after riding you will learn how to take off equimpment and take off equimpment and groom your horse. I'm sorry for any confusion!

Q:

Do you have horses available for the lessons - If I bring my daughter alone I can't trailer the horse (my husband is in charge of that!). We lease a horse in Wayne and borrow a trailer.

Q:

Would five lessons be a good experience for an adult, who only has vacation trail ride experience, but who has wanted to learn about horse back riding all their life?

Diane N.  asked on  Mar 22, 2013

A:

Riding is a never ending educational experience. 5 lessons would give you a great base for confidence. This Groupon would be a great start to other packages offered though the farm to further your education.

katarzyna n.  asked on  Mar 21, 2013
