We offer beginning riding lessons with lesson horses and then can graduate you to the intermediate and advanced lessons. We teach english riding with a basis in Dressage then move up to jumping.
We love working with our people and our horses. We are constantly improving our barn and building a friendly horse community.
Avalon Management is an amazing place because not only is Jody an extremely qualified, knowledgeable and skilled trainer/riding instructor but she really cares about her students and her horses. She is more then a riding instructor, she is a true mentor and not only helped me become a competent horse back rider but a better more and more responsible person. I took lessons from Jody for 8 years until I went to college and always make sure to visit her and the horses when I am in town.
Jody and Jessica are super knowledgeable about riding and teaching. My daughter has been riding for a year now and loves going out to the barn. The instructors do a great job of teaching to your needs and desires. My daughter never wants to slow down so they continue to push her and challenge her in different ways that keeps her very engaged but also really teaching her the skill of riding. It’s a great place to take lessons.
Jessica and Jody are such fantastic instructors. It’s really obvious that they have experience when you are learning from them, and absolutely everything they say and do has purpose and reason. I cannot recommend them enough. I was surprised at how much I could learn about body awareness, body language, and spatial reasoning when working with these two. Cannot recommend enough, 10/10
We start out tacking up the horse, mounting, then steering. From there we work on the trot and after a few months we lesrn to canter. The student should come wear stretch pants and a boot with a half inch heel. We provide approved riding helmets.
Jody has been teaching riding lessons for over 20 years. Jessica has an education degree and taught high school physics for 5 years. They have been working together as a mother/daughter team since 2016.
Trial lessons are $60, weekly are $50, and every other week or once a month is $80.
