Lessons, School Horses, Summer Camps, and Polo

Beverly provides classical riding instruction on its school horses with quality instructors in the safety and comfort of its indoor arena.  We enjoy sharing our love of horses with our clients and watching them find joy and confidence as their riding skills improve. When they are ready, clients can try showing at one of our own schooling shows with patient coaching and solid preparation to ensure success in the ring. 

Beverly is a USHJA Recognized Riding Academy.

Beverly Equestrian's all weather training facilities allow riders to train year round. The safely-enclosed indoor arena features state-of-the-art dust-free footing, mirrors, lights and heaters. For more experienced riders, there are two outdoor sand and fiber arenas with show quality show jumps and irrigation.  Beverly also offers an irrigated grass derby field with cross country jumps including water, ditch and bank complexes.

At this time, ships ins are only allowed to take lessons with resident trainers.

Private 45-minute lessons on safe and trained school horses; the horses are groomed and tacked for you so the entire time is spent riding. 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. Summer 2023 pricing: $175 per 45-minute lesson or prepurchase a block of four lessons for $660, making the price $165 each.
