At Schellenberg Stables, we offer comprehensive lessons and programs for all ages. Currently, we have numerous riders from age six to adult who attend weekly lessons. We specialize in Hunter/ Jumper.
All participants in the lesson program are required to have, one or more, one hour private lesson(s) to assess the rider’s skill level. After this introductory lesson, you will be placed in a group of similarly skilled riders. All groups are limited to a maximum of five or six students to maintain a high teacher to student ratio.
We offer several coaches to cover all levels and abilities. Our show clients are supported by Peter Gisborn, a successful “A Circuit” rider. Kristen Bettio teaches the challenge circuit/schooling show students. Georgia Yanush, Stephanie Laderman and Dani Wood are our intermediate/ beginner coaches.
We have twenty-six quality school horses available to ride depending on the skill level of the rider. We also maintain several quality show horses for a lease to show to our clients. We pride ourselves on teaching students right the first time and ensuring the care of the animal and safety of the student are our top priorities.
Lessons are paid for one month, blocks paid in advance and due at the beginning of the month. Any lessons that are missed with good reason may be made up at a later date. Any students interested in competing, will have the opportunity to join the Challenge Show circuit at the end of October. Show students are required to have two lessons per week minimum.
Our school horses are thoroughly trained and verified for soundness and safety before being introduced to the lessons’ program.
