Cost per 1 Hour Lesson is $75 ​


SCS offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons in both Western and English disciplines. All lessons are on an individual basis, and must be scheduled at least one week in advance. Payment is due at time of lesson (make checks payable to Stage Coach Stables). A $25 cancellation fee will be charged if the lesson is not cancelled with adequate notice. SCS instructors reserve the right to re-schedule a lesson if weather conditions are unfavorable (temperatures below 30° F or above 95° F) or if no lesson horses are available. 

Riders must be at least 6 years of age to enroll in lessons. Helmets are required for all individuals under the age of 18. A parent or guardian must remain on SCS property for the duration of a lesson for riders under the age of 16. Instructors may end a lesson at any time if they deem necessary out of a concern for horse and/or rider safety. 


Specialized lessons, such as barrel racing or dressage, may be referred to outside instructors. Jumping lessons will only be given once a rider’s abilities have been observed, and if an appropriate horse is available. 


Lessons may also be given privately owned horses. Individuals bringing their horse to SCS will be charged $45 per lesson, plus a $10 trailer-in fee.
