Riding Lessons

Available at Austin and Coupland locations.

Whether your goal is to learn to ride or to sharpen your competitive skills, at Tri-Star Farmwe have a program for you. We offer private, semi-private, and group lessons for adults and children of all skill levels. Our well-behaved school horses, tack, and arena furnishings are available for your use during lessons. Many of our school horses are available for lease to help you improve your riding skills and get more time in the saddle. Some of our school horses are also our show team horses! We tailor every lesson to accommodate the rider’s particular goals, while establishing a solid foundation in the basics of riding. Hunter, Jumper, Dressage, and English and Western Pleasure riders all learn to use the balanced seat essential and appropriate for their preferred riding style.

We believe that the ‘whys’ of riding, training, and horse behavior are just as important as the ‘hows’, so theory is always an essential element of our lessons. We base our lessons and classes on the theories of classical dressage. Another essential element of our lessons is correct horsemanship. Students arrive at least half an hour before a lesson, because every student learns and practices the basic responsibilities of the equine arts, including catching, grooming, and tacking up their horse. As Ms. Kathy says, “They don’t come with the saddles on!”

We ask all riders starting with us to take at least one private evaluation lesson, so that we can help you plan your personal riding program in solo or group lessons with other riders of similar experience.
