Lessons available for Children age 6 to adult.
JDV focus its lesson curriculum on all aspects of horsemanship. When you begin lessons at JDV you will learn horse handling, grooming, appropriate warm-up and cool downs, balance, safety, equitation, dressage, hunter/jumper, horsemanship. Once a student has learned to tack and un-tack their horse, they will be expected to have their horse ready at the beginning of their lesson. The time it takes one to learn this depends on age & ability. Once students have learned to do so, their lesson time will primarily consist of riding.
JDV offers both group lessons for one hour, or a 30 minute private. All beginning riders must start in private lessons until they can walk/trot unassisted to join a group. One hour Introductory lessons are for new students to learn to prepare their horse before and after lessons. Currently lessons are scheduled for Tuesday - Friday Afternoons and Saturday Mornings. Although we love to ride we do so in a family fun, safe, and relaxed environment. JDV farm mission is to educated and train riders that promote and encourage good sport and good horsemanship. Students can expect to spend 1.5-2 hours at the farm.
