Paradise Acres offers a diverse education for riders of all ages and experience

Our minimum age is 3 years old, therefore we pride ourselves on developing strong equine foundations. Horse Care and stable management skills are taught in every lesson to create a depth of understanding underlying the sport of riding. This knowledge is dispersed in various ways depending on the students interests and needs. Let us know your goals and we can help you achieve them!

Our knowledgeable coach Allison Watters has experience in many disciplines, spanning Dressage to natural horsemanship to hunter jumper, and can adapt a program suited for each individual student.

Lessons are 1 hour long, with approximately 15 minutes dedicated to getting the horse ready.

We also offer a “share-a-pony” lesson for siblings or friends. These lessons are 1.5 hours in duration, each child gets a 45 minute lesson.

Group and semi-private lessons are available upon request from students who have done at least one month of weekly private lessons.

It is encouraged to register for our weekly lesson program to help us, help you, achieve your equine dreams!
