Horseback riding is a sport to be enjoyed by all ages, from children 6 years to 76 and beyond. Getting on a horse is a rewarding and spiritual experience full of excitement and self-discovery. Every horse is a teacher, every horse is a story to be told and a friend to be loved.
Here at M&M Acres, we believe in the strength of the bond between horse and human. This bond is often created on the ground, more so than in the saddle. For this reason, a portion of all lessons are spent on the ground working on grooming, tacking up, lunging and at liberty work. We also offer sessions that focus solely on training techniques for green horses. Our instructors don't just turn out good riders - but good horsemen.
We also offer "future horse owner" classes teaching imperative skills, such as: how to administer oral medications, wrap legs, take vitals, hoof care and loading in a trailer. These classes are offered in a group setting.
