At the East Bay Riding Academy, we work to design a unique program for every student to meet their goals in riding and working with horses. Whether you dream of competing for blue ribbons or just enjoy being around horses, every student is encouraged to set goals and our priority is to help you meet them.
East Bay Riding Academy offers a highly individualized lesson program with an emphasis on safety, learning, and fun. We believe riding is not just about the work on horseback, but that horsemanship and horse care are crucial elements in the learning process. All of our lessons include time for the student to learn to lead, groom, and tack-up their own horse, all while under the careful mentorship of one of our qualified instructors. In the saddle, students learn to improve their riding skills in a fun and productive way and are always encouraged to set and reach new goals. We understand that each rider is unique, which is why we take the time to develop an individualized program catered to each individual rider’s strengths, weaknesses, and goals.
We offer children’s riding lessons on our lesson ponies during the week, as well as on weekends. Lessons are 45 mins, with 15 mins spent on the ground learning horse care (brushing the horse, tacking it up, good horsemanship, etc), and 30 mins of ride time.
Please arrive on time to ensure your child has the best experience possible!
We recommend heeled shoes or boots, and long pants. We provide a helmet, as well as a safety vest, to ensure maximum safety around the horse and in the saddle.
