LESSONS ARE NOW FORMING
Switch Willo Stables has many highly qualified instructors who have been teaching with us from five to twenty-five years. We offer small group, semi-private, and private lessons by the month only, with a 2 month minimum commitment to start. Horses are also available for lease or half-lease on a monthly basis through the lesson program. (We do NOT offer horse rentals or trail rides.)
Lesson Contract and Policies
Lessons are divided by ability and age. Lessons are offered 7 days/week
**In a group lesson, if only one person shows up, the lesson is considered to be a private and is conducted for 30 minutes.

Students may use lesson horses to attend local horse shows. Switch Willo Stables has horses suitable from beginner to experienced riders. Switch Willo Stables will transport the horse and lend horse equipment. Attending horse shows is an excellent way to improve riding skills, and students are encouraged to attend shows. Please discuss your horse show goals with your instructor. Here is the local CTHJA show schedule.
