For our younger riders from ages 2-3 we have developed the Lil Breeches Lesson program. This program is designed for children who are interested in horses but are not yet old enough for the demands of regular lessons. The shortened lessons will teach children the basics of riding as well as caring for their mount. Lessons are half an hour long, and are always private for the safety of our students. Riding lessons for young riders are excellent for muscle development, coordination, and strength. They are also a great way to build confidence in your child.
Lessons for all beginners are 1 hour long, and private. Lessons cover from getting the horse out, tacking up, riding, and putting the horse away. Our beginner lessons stay private as long as needed. Experienced riders who can tack on their own are welcome to arrive prior to their lessons time to tack their horses. If their riding lesson remains private, lessons are 30-40 minutes long. If you are riding in a group (no more than 4, but usually smaller!), lessons will be an hour long.
For the safety of our horses, we must strictly enforce a 225 pound weight limit.
Hunter's Edge is dedicated to providing the highest quality and safest riding instruction possible. Confidence, respect, and responsibility are all integral parts of the instructional program. We emphasize a strong foundation for jumping, focusing on position, correct equitation, and effective aids. At Hunter's Edge we have a lovely balance of both children & adult students, from experienced to complete beginners. Our instructors are wonderful at teaching all ages, as are our lesson horses & ponies. We offer lesson horses from beginner to advanced, from small pony to full size horses. For all of our lesson programs, we provide all the tack (including saddles) and grooming supplies. Riders are required to have their own riding attire. Our quality lesson program is designed for horse lovers of all ages (lessons for both adults and children as young as 2), and experience levels who desire to learn or improve their skills in riding the disciplines of Hunters, Jumpers, and Equitation. With experienced instructors and horses you can look forward to each lesson being fun, safe, and educational.

You will need proper riding attire.
Proper riding attire consists of: (Our minimum requirement is a helmet and boots)
- Collared shirt (We recommend long sleeve, thin cotton shirts or summer riding shirts when riding outside)
- Paddock boots and half chaps, or tall boots
- Properly fitting ASTM/SEI Approved riding helmet
- Rider's Hair net
- Riding Gloves
Please note for the safety of our riders we do not loan riding attire. With loaner helmets you never know the integrity of the helmet and we truly believe that is unsafe. Your safety is our first priority!
