Our Group lessons are the most cost-effective way for riders of all levels of experience to hone their skills. Knollwood holds group sessions six days a week to provide you with a flexible schedule. Beginner through Advanced classes are held at various times throughout the week, along with special “Adult Only” classes.
Group lessons run approximately 45 minutes. There is no maximum age limit, however, group lessons are restricted to those who are 7 and older.
Group lessons help a rider develop the skills necessary for controlling a horse while in the ring with other riders—much like learning to drive with other cars on the road. Group lessons also offer a great workout for those looking for another way to exercise!
Group lesson packages are available in four and eight-week sessions. Appropriately cancelled group lessons may be rescheduled for later in the same week or added to the end of your session.
Rate: 4 Week Session : $160.00
8 Week Session: $260.00
