Stevens Creek Farm caters to all levels and ages of riders with both leisure and competitive objectives.
As well as regular indoor arena riding we include outdoor trail riding (hacking) for those who are interested and our school
horses are well trained for both outdoor and indoor riding requirements.
Recreational Lessons The recreational riding program is a great way to learn to ride or to revisit the riding joys of your youth and stay in shape.
Beginner riders start with private lessons. The session lessons are for riders who can walk and trot around the ring
independently. You may choose to participate in seasonal sessions, take lessons monthly or take lessons on a per diem basis if
space allows. Private and group lessons range from $55 to $90 ea. depending on your interest.

What you need is a helmet, snug fitting stretchy pants, shirt with short sleeves, boots with a heel and gloves(optional in the summer). You do not have to go out and buy clothes for your first few lessons. Please no loose fitting hoodies, loopy earings or tank tops. Hair must be tied up in one or two braids or in a hair net. We have helmets you can use or bring your bike helmet, tight or exercise pants work, knee socks are important, snug gloves, and boots with a heel. If you decide to continue we recommend your own helmet, paddock boots and half chaps as standard wear with stretchy pants or riding pants. Trial Lesson

Leasing gives you three(3) days a week of riding with one or two lessons and you get a taste of horse ownership without the full cost and responsibility of ownership. Agreements vary depending on the horse. If you are interested in an upgrade please mention this to your instructor or call the office so we can explain your different options.
