Foxmeade offers riding lessons to year round (weather permitting) taught by Claire Durham. We teach beginner through advanced riders in a group setting and also offer private lessons. Our selection of horses offer a range of sizes and skill levels that are matched based on the riders ability. In our lesson program, each rider is developed at their own pace. We limit the lesson size to five riders - this encourages camaraderie and sportsmanship while as enjoying the social aspect of horse back riding.
Helmets are available at Foxmeade. We recommend wearing long pants and a hard soled shoe with a heel.
Aside from emergencies, Foxmeade requires 24 hours notice of an upcoming absence to grant a make-up lesson. If 24 hours notice is not given - lesson & payment will be forfeited.
Lessons will be cancelled in extreme conditions (excessively hot or cold temperatures, rain, snow, etc.). All lessons cancelled due to weather will be rescheduled. However, it may take several weeks to actually accomplish this. We appreciate your cooperation.
