Classical dressage and natural horsemanship is the heart of the Rolling Acres Riding Program. Classical Riding is beneficial to all disciplines and helps riders achieve a better partnership on the ground and in the saddle. We use progressive a teaching method that focuses on balance, position and use of aids. Working toward becoming a true partner with the horse, being sensitive to the horse's needs, while progressing through the lesson with empathy and understanding.
We offer both group and private lessons. Group lessons usually range from 3-4 students and are a great opportunity for students to learn and work together. Private lessons are one on one and individually focused. We have found that it is better for the beginners to start with private lessons until they become comfortable and confident to take part in group lessons. Both advanced and intermediate riders benefit from both private and semi private lessons. Each lesson is approximately 1 hour.
Each lesson focuses on the individual needs and level of the rider and their riding goals. Please contact us at 864-380-8858 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a lesson. We look forward to hearing from you!
Attire: All students are required to wear appropriate attire including: riding boots, gloves, long pants or breeches, and an ASTM/SEI approved helmet at all times when riding. We do have riding helmets available for you to use if you do not own one. If you plan to continue with lessons we do recommend you purchase your own helmet.
