English & Western Horseback Riding Lesson Program and Saddle Club
Chaparral in Woodside & Milpitas, offer a complete riding lesson program for children and adults, from beginners to advanced. We believe in "functional riding" - our students spend a lot of time in the saddle. Most of the theory we talk about during lessons is discussed on horseback, so the rider can develop the physical and sensory responsiveness that puts theory into practice. Our goal is to allow each student to progress at his or her own pace while we make the learning experience safe, enjoyable and fun. At the first session, we conduct an evaluation of each rider’s abilities and identify their goals. Our seasoned lesson horses are available for your use, or we can work with you and your own horse. Advance purchase is required. Children from 6 to 8 years may do half hour lessons. 8 and up one hour lessons.
Saddle Club is an 8 week program for your child to learn how to manage a horse on the ground and in the saddle. Students class is one hour per week either Saturday or Sunday.
