Fall 2018 Lesson Information

​Class Information, Schedule and Tuition 

Lessons are offered in four sessions per year, with each session lasting between 10 and 14 weeks.  Below is a list of the various programs offered. See the current Classes and Offerings list for more complete details.  

Horsemanship Group Lessons 
Groups lessons last 55 min – 70 min depending on the level, and offer a level-appropriate instructor to student ratio.   Students spend about 20 minutes working on on-ground horsemanship skills and the remaining time riding.  This combination of teaching care-taking, tacking and on-ground handling in addition to riding has great results in bringing up well-rounded equestrians! 

Barn Buddy Youth Enrichment Program
The Barn Buddy Program pairs up a student with horses, peer mentors and an adult facilitator for weekly lessons on caring for, riding and handling horses. Children must be referred into the program. Click here to view and print the referral form. For more information, click here to view the program brochure or contact Kassi at info@sandeschoolofhorsemanship.org  

Therapeutic Riding Group Lessons
These riding groups work with students who have alternative goals or special needs.  Games, patterns and activities during the lesson are catered to the riders unique needs and goals set forth by parents, Kassi and (if applicable) the student’s Physical or Occupational Therapist.  The social aspect of a group assists with relationship-building.

Little Wrangler Group Lessons
New for Winter, 2018!  This 45-min group for kids ages 4-7 helps ensure those first horse experiences are safe and positive!  It teaches early riding and handling skills as well as just providing good, safe, horsey fun.  Kids spend half of the lesson riding (with one-on-one instruction) and the other half doing hands-on horsemanship activities in the barn.
