Lesson Program

Idylwood stables is a family-friendly barn offering high quality instruction in English riding to children and adults from first time riders to experienced competitive show riders. Our lesson program is structured to provide a safe balance of fun and challenge. Riding areas used for lessons include two jump arenas (one is lighted), a round pen, a covered 20 x 60m dressage ring (lighted), cross-country jumps, and a hunt course. We vary exercises to keep equine and rider engaged and alert: dressage, xc, grid work. even swimming with our horses in hot weather.

We have horses for lease. Leasing a horse allows you to ride the same horse every lesson, developing a bond with your equine partner and allowing for consistency in your riding experience. All leasing options include two group lessons a week in the fee.

Students are required to own a riding helmet, hard soled boots with regular-sized heels, gloves, and riding breeches. Optional equipment includes grooming supplies, tack and pads. 

 

Our full list of rates can be found in the Lesson Contract below.

 

Kids Camp

Our comely horses and adorable ponies are ready to welcome you to Camp Idylwood!

We offer more horse time than most other kids' camp, beginning with four contact hours in the morning, interspersed with breaks to keep young minds fresh. The day starts with simple barn chores -- feeding and caring for the horses, including our resident baby colt! Children will then learn the ground basics under careful supervision from experienced riders. All lessons are conducted by our trainers. Beginners will learn to walk, steer and then trot on their horses under the protection of our covered arena. More advanced riders will be challenged with bareback rides, field jumps, and instruction in show preparation -- which includes proper grooming, clipping, and bathing for competition. 

 

Idylwood prides itself on its gardens and natural water features. Campers will hunt for fossils in the limestone while looking for other critters that make up the ecosystem of the barn in its creek and ponds. Campers will also learn how horses and people work to create soil together through composting, and will spend time learning some gardening basics in Idylwood’s butterfly garden and our community vegetable and herb gardens. We will fish for bass and blue gill and practice archery on the oak-shaded rolling hills of the property. 

 

Camp Idylwood is more than just horseback riding; it is a memory participants cherish for life! 

NEW DATES ARE UP FOR WINTER 2019 AND FOR SPRING BREAK AND SUMMER 2020!
