1 Hour Private Lesson

(1 customer review)


You will ride a solid 45 minute workout in English or western gear and get your instructor’s undivided attention during this  One Hour Private Riding Lesson. Your lesson will take place in the safety of the North Road Farm riding arena or on the beautiful open space Fremont Rail-Trail network. Either place, Jan Brubacher will be by your side from the ground or mounted horseback to guide you through the natural cues your horse is waiting to receive to take action or slow down to a halt.

A minimum of 20 minutes extra time is factored in this lesson to give you plenty of breathing space to halter, groom and gear-up your horse or pony for your One Hour Private Riding Lesson. Once your ride is completed, you again have extra time to untack your horse, clean the riding equipment and return to the proper resting place. If your horse deserves a relaxing spray bath with hot or cold water, you have that wonderful post-ride time to care for your mount and clean-up yourself.

Please complete & submit online Ride & Volunteer release prior to your lesson

You know the basics detailed in the Two Hour Introduction Lesson (see below)  You can execute all steps independently or with minimal assistance.

    Jan is fantastic! From the moment we arrive to the moment we depart, Jan makes sure every moment is full of fun and learning. Our daughter has a hard time engaging in activities she isn’t quite sure about and she hit it off immediately with Jan. She has a way with her! I enjoy each minute at North Road Farm! I love how dedicated Jan is to educating about horse care and safety for both the rider and the horse.
    Taking private lessons was a perfect choice for our beginning rider.

      Thanks so much for your generous review, Chelsea. You and Brian are such dedicated parents. It’s an absolute pleasure to work with Audrey. Her smile lights up her pony and me telling us how delighted she feels. See you soon! Jan
