Riding Lessons at Caledon Equestrian

Weekly lessons are geared to the safe progressive development of the rider. Coaches use the national Rider Level Program which establishes safe, correct and consistent skills at all levels. We offer Rider Testing at the end of the Spring session.

Lessons are available in groups, with a maximum of six riders per class with extra coaches and helpers for beginners; semi-private and private instruction. The cost stays the same for every type of class but the length will vary depending on the size of the class.

Caledon Equestrian School produces solid, effective and polished riders. We develop skills slowly but consistently. Our riders ride well but become horse people first. Sympathetic communication with our wonderful animals is paramount and that respect is instilled in the students in every riding lesson.

Mom’s and Tots Program: On Hold due to Covid

During the summer months we offer an intro lesson program for youngsters ages 4 to 6. We show the  children how to be safe around the ponies on the ground and build confidence  on the pony with a leader and a coach. The Mom or parent, is on site to reinforce instruction for safety. Lessons are offered after 3pm weekdays and regular lesson fees will apply.

Due to Public Health Protocols, masks must be worn inside the barn or when around a coach.
