All new riders with Graham Equestrian Center must take an Introductory Lesson regardless of age or experience. 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. 

Private Lessons: $70

Semi-Private Lessons (2 riders): $60

Group Lessons (3-5 riders): $50

Special Needs Lessons : Please submit a contact form for pricing
*Pricing varies depending on if a lesson assistant is needed. The instructor will hold an evaluation lesson and will determine the need for a lesson assistant to aid the student during the exercises.


Graham accepts the following forms of payments at the time the lesson is given. Any late payments will be charged a late fee for each day not received.  Once established in regular lessons, payments may be made online (see link below).
