Confidence: Our lesson program is designed to build the confidence of our riders by setting goals and pursuing them throughout the lessons. Our horses are safe for beginner riders and can provide a challenge for more advanced riders giving everyone an opportunity to learn and grow as a rider.
Independence: We encourage independence of our riders by teaching the concepts they need to succeed, giving them independence to practice on their own. Although all the students are supervised, our leasing program allows students to interact and ride the horses outside of a lesson environment to practice things on their own and develop their riding.
Horsemanship: At Ironstone Stables, our highest priority is to teach good horsemanship. We value our horses and teach our students to do them same. All horses deserve respect and our lesson program works to teach students how to treat a horse kindly and respectfully building a bond between the horse and rider.
