We focus on the foundation. Our goal is to provide you with a safe, fun, and educational atmosphere to enjoy horses, both on the ground and in the saddle, no matter how experienced you are. Some of our riders come for a single ride, and many enroll in weekly lessons. Whether you dream of owning a horse some day, or just want to try horseback riding, Three Strides Horsemanship has something for you.



As an adult beginner rider, I was a little nervous at first. Kara made me feel at ease and builds my confidence as a rider.


Kara is so kind and patient with my eight year old daughter.

Step 1:

Connect With Us

We value our relationships with our students. Even if you reach out initially over email, we will still arrange a time to talk over the phone before your first lesson. We’ll chat about your goals for yourself (or your child), and address any questions or concerns.

Step 2:

Schedule Your Lesson

During your phone call with Kara, you’ll have the opportunity to schedule your first lesson.

Step 3:

Enroll in Weekly Lessons

After your first lesson, you will reserve a weekly lesson time. Weekly lessons are 60 minutes and take place Monday-Saturday.


After the first lesson, each student is responsible for purchasing their own riding helmet and riding boots.

During the first lesson, the student’s instructor will make recommendations on proper styles and sizes.
