Riding Lessons and Training at Longmeadow
Longmeadow Rescue Ranch encourages all adopters to take advantage of our wonderful additional training and lesson opportunities provided through Columbia Equestrian Center. Our training options allow you to spend additional time with your selected horse and our natural horsemanship trainer learning helpful tools and techniques. You may also choose to invest in additional training for your new horse before taking him or her home.
We are excited to offer new training options for both Longmeadow Rescue Ranch Alumni Horses as well as privately owned horses:
Longmeadow has beginner to advanced lessons available in multiple disciplines. Ride your adopted horse, bring your own horse, or ride one of the Longmeadow Rescue Ranch horses! Lessons are available for anyone interested in advancing their riding and horsemanship skills, whether you’ve adopted from Longmeadow or you’re dreaming of a horse of your very own.
Lessons with your newly adopted horse will help you to understand the training already received here at the ranch and will teach you to use tools and techniques to continue the learning process with your new partner. All lessons include 45 minutes of riding time, which does not include tacking and untacking.
Private Lesson: $55
Semiprivate Lesson (2 people): $45
Group Lesson (3 or more people): $35
