Riding Lessons – Gift CardsBeth Hartka

Gift cards are available for purchase so that you can give the gift of riding lessons!

Gift cards can be purchased in any denomination, however we suggest that you consider the lesson pricing in your purchase.  All new students are required to take an Intro Lesson, which is a private lesson, so please take that into consideration.  New students who have attended camp here are not required to take an intro lesson.

Introductory lesson: All new riders with Graham Equestrian Center must do an Introductory Lesson no matter of age or experience level. It is a one time, one hour long lesson broken into two segments. The first 30 minutes is an orientation to our facility, safety procedures and basics of riding (more advanced riders will instead use this time to give us background information on riding history). The remaining 30 minutes will then be a lesson with one our instructors on a horse selected for the experience level. 

Lesson Pricing:

All lessons are 1 hour:

  • Private/Intro – $75
  • Semi-Private (2 to 3 students) – $65
  • Group (up to 6 students of similar experience levels) – $55
  • Special Needs riding- pricing varies depending on whether the instructor will need an assistant for the lesson.  Please submit a contact form for more information.

How to get a gift card:

You can purchase a card here at the farm, the best times to stop  by are weekdays between 9am and 3pm.  If you stop by the farm during those hours and cannot find someone to assist you please call the main number, 410-663-4445 and press 2 for the Barn Manager.  We can also accept credit card payments over the phone, although we prefer not to mail out gift cards because we don’t want them to get lost.

How to schedule a lesson after the recipient receives their gift card

If the person you are purchasing the gift card for has never ridden at GEC before, please download the welcome packet and have them fill it out before their first lesson.  It will save them time in the intro lesson and give them more time to ride.

Once the recipient receives their gift card, please have them come back to this website, go to the lesson page, and select the ‘New Student’.  There they will find information about how to schedule their lesson, what to wear, etc.
