Our lessons are an hour and a half long. Students spend the first 15 minutes grooming and tacking their horses. They ride for approximately one hour. The last 15 minutes is spent un-tacking, grooming and putting their horses away.

There will also be lessons on groundwork that are included in the lesson series that will include the riding component.

Stables charge the same amount as BMEC for a half hour to hour lesson. BMEC’s lessons last 1.5 hours so students can learn horsemanship, which includes brushing, saddling, bridling, and ground work.

We give group lessons. The lessons consist of 3-4 riders, depending on age and experience. We try to group riders, as best we can, according to age and ability.

A student can take two lessons a week, year-round, and attend camps well below the cost of horse ownership. Additionally, there are no unforeseen veterinarian expenses, multiple ownerships, or sad goodbyes.

As students become teenagers, they can become assistants, camp counselors, apprentice instructors, and paid instructors. These programs provide additional experience without added expense so our students can save money for college. These experiences have also proven valuable for scholarships and job opportunities beyond horses. Employers recognize the importance of experiences involving hard work, communication and relationship skills.

The lessons are $40 per person, per lesson and are scheduled once or twice a week. We require the lessons be paid for a month in advance. The payment is not refundable. If a rider is not able to attend a lesson during the month, the lesson fee is forfeited unless the instructor grants permission and is notified a week in advance.

Show-Off days are held three times a year for students taking two lessons per week. In addition, each camp ends with a show-off session. This allows family and friends to see the new skills each student has acquired, meet their mustang teachers, and provides time for great photo opportunities.

We supply helmets, tack, experienced horses and excellent instructors. If riders have a bike helmet they like and that fits them well, then can use it. They need to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, preferably with a heel.
