Riding Lessons in the beginning: Everyone who starts riding with San Diego Riding Academy will be in a private lesson.  When you call to schedule a lesson please ask if there are currently an specials available for an introductory lesson.

Do you have your own horse and wish to take riding lessons with SDRA? If you are a horse owner, your first lesson will give you and your instructor a chance to get to know each other. Besides watching you as a rider, your instructor will also take the time to find out what your horses training needs are and what goals you have for yourself and your horse. Each subsequent lesson will incorporate your goals. Often, you will have “homework” to help you move forward in your relationship with your horse. Private lessons are $40 for 40 minutes on your horse . 

Are you or your child new to riding and looking for quality riding lessons? For those riders who are just getting started, the first 6 lessons are 1 hour with 1/2 hour riding and 1/2 hour spent learning horsemanship from the ground. After your initial 6 lessons more private riding lessons can be arranged if you and your instructor feel you need them. When you are proficient at caring for your horse, and gain enough control to ride safely with others you can move into a group lesson (no more than three riders in a group) and ride for 50 minutes.

Are you returning to riding after a break? Have you been riding regularly with another instructor? If you have riding experience and do not have your own horse, you will need to do at least one riding lesson privately. This will give you a chance to meet your instructor and the horse you will be riding. If you are comfortable with your horse, and your instructor feels you have sufficient skills to move into a group (no more than 3 riders in a group), those arrangements can be made at the end of your first ride! You also have the option of remaining in private lessons if you prefer. Lessons can be purchased for $50 each or $45 each when 4 or more lessons are purchased.
