Horseback Riding Lessons

For Adults

Who says horses are just for kids? Lots of people learn to ride as adults. Horsemanship is a journey that can last a lifetime.

Why Three Strides?

A place to begin

3 out of 4

of our students have never ridden a horse before coming to Three Strides. Typically, The other 25% haven't ridden in many years.
We are one of the few riding schools who offer beginner adult riding lessons in the Ann Arbor Area.

A place to grow


of our students who come for a single lesson enroll in weekly lessons. We will work with you to achieve their goals, whether you want to focus on learning to ride or mastering a specific skill, such as jumping or horse care. 

A place to love

Our horses love their job, and in return, the students tend to love them. Riding is the skill, and stronger, more confident students are the benefit. We strive to make the barn a place that you can't wait to return to each week.

"Kara is an AMAZING riding teacher! She makes each lesson SO MUCH FUN. Kara is creative in her teaching. She is an excellent listener. She clearly understands her students, and chooses just the right way to explain things to each individual.

Kara goes above and beyond in her teaching. Besides demonstrating and explaining clearly during the lessons, she sends videos to watch and books to read outside of class time.

I leave every lesson feeling great and looking forward to the next one!”

-Toni, adult student since 2017
