Lessons

We supply safe, well-mannered school horses for the beginner in a controlled environment.  We teach all aspects of horse riding and care.  Our riders learn to groom, tack and un-tack their horse, and are instructed on safety in all areas of handling and managing horses.  We appreciate your interest and want to help you achieve your goals in a safe and professional manner.  Your trainer will customize a program to meet your individual needs and ensure success obtaining your goals.

Our primary goals are:

  1. To promote classical horsemanship.
  2. To produce riders of the highest standard in a relaxed, friendly environment.
  3. To nurture and enhance the special relationship between horse and rider.

We start children from the age of five, and offer flexible schedules.  New riders are extended a sixty-day waiver of horse leasing fees. After this initial period, riders can choose one the following lease options to supplement their lessons:

  1. Lesson Lease:  Student may ride one to five times per month, not exceeding more than one lesson per week.  A missed lesson can be made up within one week before or after the cancelled lesson. Students may request a specific horse to ride in lessons, however the requested horse is not guaranteed to the student.
  2. Quarter Lease: Student may ride eight to ten times per month, with a minimum of four lessons per month.  The student is permitted up to two rides, lesson or lease, per week. With trainer approval, a specific horse is guaranteed to the student for their appointed ride time. A shared locker is assigned to the student.
  3. Half Lease: Student may ride twelve to fifteen times per month, with a minimum of five lessons per month.  The student is permitted up to three rides, lesson or lease, per week. With trainer approval, a specific horse is guaranteed to the student for their appointed ride time. A shared locker is assigned to the student.
  4. Full Lease: The student is permitted up to six rides, lesson or lease, per week with a minimum of five lessons per month. With trainer approval, a specific horse is guaranteed to the student for the month. A personal locker is assigned to the student.

    New riders and their appointed guardian are required to read and sign our Waiver of Liability form before the student is allowed access to the farm.

    The Waiver of Liability forms can be found here, or upon arrival at HAEC.

    Attention HAEC Parents and Students:

    Effective April 27, 2015 HAEC is enforcing a lesson cancellation policy

    -  Any scheduled lesson cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged at full price. 

    -  To cancel a lesson, please call or text your instructor.  If it is short notice, such as the student is sick, or other unforeseen matters, the instructor must be notified a minimum of 2 hours before the scheduled lesson time. 

    -  If a student does not call to cancel a scheduled lesson and does not show up for the scheduled lesson, payment for the missed lesson must be made in full before another lesson will be scheduled.

    Thank you in advanced for helping our lesson program run more smoothly.
