The mission of Northwestern Stables is to provide lessons to people of all ages, incomes, backgrounds, and abilities. All classes are on a first come first serve basis. The instructors specialize in English riding emphasizing appropriate movement of each horse, rider positioning, and jumping over cross rails and vertical fences up to 3 feet in height.
Children ages 8-19 can join the 4H Equine Club in which they'll participate in projects about horsemanship, barn service, and community service. You can also enroll your kids in Northwestern's great summer camp, where they're assigned to groups based on their riding levels.
