Horseback riding lessons from beginner through World Championship levels in Saddle Seat, Hunter Seat, Western and Driving

World ChampionshipHorses provide all of us with an opportunity to be excited and passionate about a sport that is both athletic and emotionally engaging. They help teach responsibility, empathy toward caring for another being, it improves balance and core strength and emphasizes teamwork and sportsmanship.

We teach with smiles and positive reinforcement with both our horses and our students, and love to watch their confidence rise with that feeling of accomplishment that comes from achieving small goals every day. We realize that all students progress at different levels, and we adjust our lesson plans accordingly. Our students learn to groom and tack up their own horses, as well as put them away after their lessons. It makes for a better understanding of the horses and teaches Riding lessons for all agesour riders the proper care and responsibility for animals.

We have indoor and outdoor arenas for year round riding, and our fabulous lesson horses are safe and suitable for all levels and sizes of riders. Cottonwood Creek’s experienced and accomplished instructors are the perfect mentors for advancing the abilities of any age or level of rider.
