Horseback Riding Lessons

For Kids

Your horse-crazy kid will feel at home with us! Kids and horses are a magical thing. It’s amazing to watch a kid’s confidence grow as they work with a horse. It’s why we do what we do. 

Why Three Strides?

A place to begin

3 out of 4

of our students have never ridden a horse before coming to Three Strides.
We love making introductions to the wonderful world of horses.

A place to grow


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

A place to love

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

"Kara has great knowledge of horses and horsemanship and has conveyed that to Hannah. Because of her knowledge, Kara has put Hannah in a position to be successful (at riding and caring for the horse).

When Hannah has gotten frustrated with skills she is learning, Kara has encouraged and challenged her to keep at it and celebrated with her when she has mastered a skill!"

-Lindsay, Hannah's Mother
