— RIDING LESSONS—
Learn to ride or advance your skills with our highly successful and educational horseback riding programs. We offer group, semi-private, and private lessons. You can saddle up and ride one of our lesson horses or bring your own.
Our instructors are enthusiastic and make the lessons fun and informative. Special activities are planned to make the learning process exciting while you learn about horses, riding, and most of all, how to be safe and comfortable around horses. Our instructors take advantage of our grounds and Chatfield State Park in various stages of our lessons.
Come experience the world of horses.
"At Stockton's we specialize in Foundation Horsemanship, and each lesson is designed to bring human and horse closer to understanding one another."- Max (Head of Lesson Program)
