MJM Equestrian offers riding lessons for children and adults from the first time rider to an advanced rider. We offer private, semi private and group lessons.
Our lesson program is based on the Equestrian Canada Learn to Ride/Drive Program which "Provides the opportunity for individuals of all ages to learn best practices for safe and enjoyable experiences handling, riding...horses." Using this program MJM will not only teach you how to ride a horse, but to also handle and care for horses properly and safely. For more information on this program please visit the Equestrian Canada site here.
Continuing to use Equestrian Canada guidelines our weekly group lessons are divided by rider level. For information on what each level entails please click here.
Lessons are available for children age 5 & older and adults. Each lesson is 1 hour on horseback, 15 min prior to get the horse ready (tack/groom) and 15 min after the lesson to untack/groom the horse. Please arrive 15 min before your lesson start time.
