Equine Kingdom offers various services to the equestrian community through the form of horseback riding lessons.

Most riding schools charge comparable pricing for an hour riding lesson. This usually consists of 15-20 minutes at the beginning of your lesson to prepare your horse, a 30 minutes lesson or so, and another 15-20 minutes at the end to finish up with your horse. Here at Equine Kingdom, we offer the ENTIRE HOUR of riding time - any extra time you spend before or after your lesson is FREE! We greatly encourage our riders to come early and stay late to gain extra horse/learning time!

Children and adults will learn to:

  • Ride correctly
  • Groom a horse
  • Feed/care for a horse
  • saddle/bridle a horse
  • ride on trails
  • show a horse
  • and much, much more!

You'll learn to groom your horse, put on a saddle and bridle quickly and efficiently, mount and dismount your horse, turn your horse correctly, walk, trot, and canter, jump small jumps, maneuver a course of poles, judge distances, and much, much more! Lessons are always different, always fun, and always something new to learn! You won't regret taking lessons with us!

We Do Not Currently Offer Private Lessons

Take Horseback Riding Lessons

Horseback riding lessons are a fantastic way to have fun and learn at the same time! Great for all ages, accepting riders age 4 and up, any time during the day! Make my schedule work for you!

Trail Riding Packages

A unique horse experience for absolutely anyone! Learn to control and bond with your horse, and spend a relaxing hour carousing through woods and on a scenic tour of the property on horseback!

Birthday Parties

Your kids will have a blast with our pony/horse parties! They will want to come back to ride again and again! It's the perfect place to introduce your little ones to horseback riding! Our horses are well maintained; all rides are hand led, making the rides as safe and fun as possible. Riding, games, crafts, goodie bags, contests, and more! Cake and drinks not provided. For up to 10 children.

Summer Camps

What could be more fun than spending and entire week of mornings learning how to ride and care for a horse? With games, lots of riding time, horse care, and activities, your child will be thrilled to get to spend a whole week with horses! Many weeks available - call now! Space is limited! Reserve your spot early! Horseback riding increases self-confidence, discipline, self-control, and perseverance, as well as developing balance and coordination. And if all this weren't enough, it's fun, rewarding, relaxing, and educational!

Homeschool Horsemanship

This new program is designed specifically with the 4-18 year old homeschooler in mind! Sally A. Nolte was homeschooled her entire life, and so she knows exactly what it's like she's been there, done that! This program will introduce your children to the joy of horses and riding. We will teach your children the basics of all around horsemanship, including safety around horses, grooming/brushing techniques, handling the horses safely, nutrition/feeding, health and first aid, and basic equine anatomy.
