ONLY THE 30 MINUTE PRIVATE LESSON OPTION IS AVAILABLE, TO NEW RIDERS. IT IS OUR VIEW THAT THIS IS THE MOST SENSIBLE WAY TO LEARN TO RIDE.
Whether working with first time riders or riders looking to fine-tune their skills, our trainers provide quality instruction within a casual setting. Salko Farm offers private, semi-private, and group lessons. Top notch instruction combined with quality lesson horses, helps to ensure that our students will have a safe, fun and educational experience every time they visit Salko Farm.
Our current focus is based on solid foundations and the important fundamentals of horsemanship, both mounted and on the ground.
From our prerequisite Horsemanship Hour lesson, new riders move into 30 minute private lessons. Groups are not an option until riders are cantering with ease.
TWO NEW RIDERS CAN NOT LEARN TOGETHER WITH ONE INSTRUCTOR... RIDING REQUIRES ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION FOR BEGINNERS. MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS CAN NOT LEARN TO RIDE TOGETHER.
Beginners (5 YEARS OF AGE AND UP) start with the Horsemanship Hour to learn the basics of grooming and tacking plus horse language and behavior.
After the Horsemanship lesson, 30 minute private lessons are the only way forward at Salko Farm.
Our weekly sessions are sold in 12-week quarters per season. Current dates are listed on Home Page.
Once we find you a weekly time slot, we will invoice for the remainder of the current season. WAIVERS AND PAYMENT IN FULL FOR THE BALANCE OF THE SESSION YOU ARE JOINING, ARE DUE IN THE OFFICE 24 HOURS BEFORE THE FIRST LESSON - NO EXCEPTIONS.
