Horseback Riding Lessons in Erin, Ontario

Times/Options Available for Riding Lessons

Obviously, the more frequently lessons are taken the more rapid the progress made. But here at Greyden we do not ask you for lengthy commitments. We ask you to pay as you go - book your next lesson each week around your own schedule that will fit easily with ours. You will learn at your own pace; increasing or decreasing the frequency as you go. Our riding lessons are available 12 months a year, Tuesday thru Friday evenings  - we ride inside our indoor arena in the winter/rainy season and outdoors in our 220' x 220' jumper ring in fair weather.

Types of lessons include:

  • Group
  • Semi-private
  • Private
  • or one of our value added packages


We teach every evening Tuesday to Friday.  And starting in the fall 2016 we will offer Saturday classes till July 2017, then we take a break for August and resume in September 2017.

Our New Beginner's package:

For First Time Riders - Classes are available on Tuesday to Friday - from 5:00 to 6:00.

Beginner packages are 4 sessions that run 12 months of the year and are offered to those with little to no riding experience.  

Lessons are given on Tuesday to Fridays and are conducted in groups of  2- 4  students.

Students are asked to arrive at the barn at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled lessons to learn how to groom and tack up their horses, and will stay 30 minutes afterwards to groom their horses and put away their tack and equipment. 

Lessons are given in a one hour group riding lesson or a 1/2 hour semi private lesson.

This package is designed to prepare beginner students for entry into regular group lessons.

Greyden will provide beginner students a riding helmet for the first few lessons but they will eventually be required to purchase their own.  Boots should have heels that are about 1.5cm high to prevent them from slipping through the stirrups.

Take them as often as you like, and on what ever day suits you.

Payment in advance ~ 4 Classes are only $99.00 (taxes extra)
