Introductory Courses

for Beginners and Rusty Riders

Learn to ride, lead and tie, groom, saddle, bridle, mount and dismount. You will start riding on day one! Lots of hands-on assistance in your riding lessons on balance and how to communicate with the horse. Our school horses are well trained and the instructors are certified and have years of experience.

Intro courses will get you started, or brush up your skills if you are rusty, then we have more classes for you to keep on riding. Coming out to Miwok Stables for your ride is like having a little vacation every week! Four to six students in a class.


Introductory Class Curriculum

Introductory FAQ's

Novice, Intermediate & Advanced

Riding lessons are offered in the ring and on the trail at all levels. First we schedule an evaluation lesson to place you. Classes emphasize techniques for fluid movement and balance, and some include basic dressage, Natural Horsemanship, and jumping.

Evaluation Lesson
If you have riding experience, but are not sure what level to take, start with an evaluation lesson. We will arrange to have you ride with one of our group classes, after which the instructor will suggest the best classes for you. A private 45 minute evaluation is $125. An evaluation lesson in a group class is $90.
