Here at Sugar Valley, riding instruction is offered to students, ages 3 and up, including adults! We specialize in a style of English riding, called Saddle Seat, but also offer Hunt Seat riding instruction. Our primary focus is on a particular breed of horse, the American Saddlebred. Due to their versatile nature, high intelligence and excellent temperament, American Saddlebreds are used in a variety of riding disciplines and make wonderful horses for new riders.
Our lesson program is designed to teach all levels of riders the basic principles of good horsemanship, with safety as the first priority. Lessons are taught year-round on safe school horses, from former World Champion show horses to the calmest beginner mounts.

Riding lessons are approximately 45 minutes in length, including appropriate grooming and tacking/untacking and cooling out time. This time is an estimation, as some sessions will run over an hour while others are under an hour.
Plan to arrive a few minutes before your scheduled lesson time so that you are prepared to get your horse out, groomed, tacked, and ready to ride.
