Riding Lessons

Genesis and My Star CharlieReady to learn?  White Aspen offers riding lessons for the,  Hunter/Jumper, Dressage Western, and/or  English enthusiasts.  Lessons are available for  any experience level and/or age.  Mature, gentle, horses are used for all lessons and riders must be at least 5 years of age or older to take lessons.  We also offer boarding/training packages to meet individual goals.  Please see boarding and training for more details.

We at White Aspen Ranch put the safety of our riders and their horses above all else.  Learning how to ride properly is essential in making sure that you and your horse are properly prepared to handle any situation.  To help students understand the scope of good horsemanship, we start our lessons by teaching them about horses and how to treat and respect them.  We then teach them about the equipment and how to prepare their horse for riding.  Once they understand these principles, we continue to add practice methods to help them reach their full potential.  For those needing additional help, a trainer is available to school their horse through their specific riding challenges.

Students/ Boarders who would like to participate in horse shows are given the opportunity to travel with our trainer in Montana and the western region. White Aspen also holds schooling dressage and Hunter/Jumper shows at the facility.  Along with a number of different clinics through out the year.                  
We understand that scheduling can be an issue so we offer flexible scheduling.  We are happy to teach both an individual as well as group lessons.  Lessons can be scheduled Monday through Saturday from the hours of 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
