Horseback Riding

The City of Frederick Recreation Department offers both private and group horseback riding lessons.  Our Horsemanship Program is designed for all ages, including adults, and all levels from beginners through advanced riders.  We begin each rider with private lessons to ensure individual attention at an instruction level appropriate for their experience and age.  Once underway within our horsemanship program group lesson opportunities are available.


The basic skills taight at this stable are walk, trot, canter, jumping, trail riding, stable management, and horse care. Many other skills, activities, and aspects of horsemanship, too numerous to mention, will also be explored. Safety is our top priority and is the foundation upon which all lessons are built. Lessons are conducted rain or shine!

Our instructional staff, including two American Riding Instructor Ceritifcation Program certified instructors, combines over 50 years of teaching experience from devoted lifetime professional horsepersons. Our stable is defined by its 20 patient and well mannered horses and ponies enabling riders to be matched with a mount that is suitable for their size and skill level. We specialize in teachingour students to be safe, sensible, and knowledgeable horse people who ride correclty and still have lots of fun!
