Horsemanship & Riding Lessons

Lazy J Ranch starts new clients and beginners first in our: Introduction to Horsemanship Program. This program is for kids and adults just starting out and will take place in a private session.
Once our beginners learn the skill set required to advance, we graduate them to their choice of a semi private or private lesson. As our students gain more experience and skill we introduce them to one-day activities such as trail rides, onsite fun shows and activities as well as off-premises one-day local horse shows using Lazy J Ranch-owned horses. Customers are encouraged to take lessons from all of the instructors of the Lazy J Ranch Team to learn the unique attributes, techniques and riding disciplines of each instructor.
Introduction To Horsemanship
Lazy J Ranch’s Introduction to Horsemanship Program emphasizes practical work and confidence building for students with little or no horse experience. Students are introduced to safe handling methods including approaching and haltering the horse, tying, leading, lunging, and grooming. Students are familiarized with parts of the horse and tack and will learn how to saddle/bridal a horse and proper care of tack.
