Private Riding Lessons
Private 45-minute lessons on safe and trained school horses are $175. Local and Wakefield riders can take advantage of the discounted price of $150 for one lesson or $375 for a package of three lessons. Horses are groomed and tacked for you. When signing up for lessons, let us know if your rider is 5'10" or taller or 165 lb or greater so that we can select the appropriate school horse. Short-term leasing is also available for riders who are ready to compete. For more information on our training program at Beverly, watch this short video.

Riders are required to wear the following:
• Long pants (jeans or riding pants preferable, no shorts)
• Hard-soled shoes or boots with a minimum one-inch heel. No sneakers or flat-soled, open-toed shoes allowed. (For safety reasons, riders without required footwear will not be permitted to ride, or handle horses during the program.)
• An ASTM/SEI-certified riding helmet (helmets may be purchased at local saddlery, such as Tri-County Feeds, Dover Saddler, or Saddlery Liquidators). Bike helmets are not permitted, as they do not provide the protection required when horseback riding.
