Sign up for Spring Riding Lessons!

Registration is currently open for Spring Classes.  
Riders of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Horseback riding is excellent exercise for children and adults.
For Children:
Amanda teaches children of all ages from lead-line lessons through advanced riders competing at local Eventing, dressage and jumper shows.  We have several ponies that are available for lease, and with our extensive experience we teach children to do things the "right way" from the beginning.
For Adults:
Arundel Hill currently teaches several adults who have either never ridden or hadn't ridden since they were children. Since starting with us they have all (re)discovered their love for riding and now take lessons once or twice a week. Some have even purchased or leased their own horse and now compete (and win) locally. If you have always wanted to try horseback riding or have been out of the saddle for a while, our low-key, fun atmosphere is the perfect place to start!
