Lessons & Leasing

Our New Lesson Programs:





This lesson program is designed for equestrians of all levels and can cover a wide variety of ground work. Before starting a Horsemanship lesson your instructor will discuss with you the goals you wish to obtain through this program. Areas can include, but aren't limited too: ​

  • Grooming
  • Tacking of Your Horse
  • Caring For Tack
  • Health Care
  • Lunging
  • And More

Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center believes in building equestrians from the ground up. To do this we like to include not only riding in our lessons but learning other valuable skills such as grooming, tacking, cleaning tack and tack parts, equine health and more. We believe that including this in our lesson program produces a well rounded and educated horseman/woman.


Whether you are interested in pleasure riding, local shows, "A" shows, leasing or horse ownership Sunset Ridge is dedicated to help you reach your goals. We offer English, Hunter/Jumper, Dressage and Western lessons. Unsure of which discipline you are interested in, give us a call and we will help find whats best for you, or you can try them all.

Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center understands that owning a horse can be expensive, that's why we have a couple of different programs for our riders. As well as having lesson horses available for lessons, horse shows, and camps we also have great practice and leasing programs.




$330/month+ 1/2 of farrier fees

Sunset Ridge Equestrian Center offers a unique lease opportunity to all Sunset Ridge Students. Leasing a horse helps your child understand the responsibility of horsemanship without you taking on the full cost of owning a horse. Your child will build self-confidence by achieving goals and developing a relationship with a horse that is not always available when riding once a week. Sunset Ridge has several horses available for 1/2 lease on a first come first serve basis. The trainer will help pair the rider with the horse or pony best suited for the riders needs and riding level. Half leasing is as follows:

  • Lessee gets to ride horse three days during the week in addition to normal lesson day.
  • Lease fee includes 4 lessons a month
  • No additional cost for leasing horse for horse shows
  • Lease is for three months at a time
  • Lessee pays for half of the black smith bill
  • Sunset Ridge also has full leases available. For more information on leasing opportunities please contact our office (828)635-1400
