Lesson Program

  • Safety: Valley Park teaches students how to ride and handle horses safely.  Our instructors have experience with students of all ages and our schooling horses are gentle, aged horses who have experience dealing with young and beginner riders.  We also have variety of horses on hand for our more experienced students.

​Valley Park Stables offers a lesson program for beginner through advanced riders.  Our lessons focus on three main principles:

  • ​Camaraderie:  Valley Park Stables is more than a place to just take lessons.  It is place that encourages a community of friends who love horses. People of all ages find friends at the barn with which to talk, ride, and compete.  Our instructors feel that riding is both an individual sport and a team sport.  Riders have a teammate in the horse they are riding as well as many teammates with their fellow barn-mates. 
  • Horsemanship: Valley Park values good horsemanship skills.  Riders are taught to value the horses' well-being and health.  Riding horses is about more than what happens when you are on the horse's back. A relationship between horse and rider begins and is fostered by what happens before and after your ride.  A rider's instruction begins with lessons on how to properly lead, tack, and groom the horses that they will be riding.
