At Cape Cod Equestrian Center we offer horseback riding lessons for ages 3 and up. you are never too young or too old to enjoy a horse! Our one-on-one instruction is a great way to get introduced to the horse world. We have a tremendous group of over 20 lesson horses that can teach from the very beginner riders all the way through World Champion level riders, and instructors that can do the same.
We cater to all types of interests - whether it is riding just for fun, exercise, love of horses, or the desire to compete at a Local, National, or World level. Many of our Show Team riders began in our Riding Academy, learning the basics and then moving on to Select Academy Team and Show Team. Whatever your desire, Cape Cod Equestrian Center can take you there!
We offer a variety of lesson options to cater to our student's needs.
Tiny Tot Lessons
Tiny Tot Lessons are a great way to get your young horse lover in the saddle.
Private Riding Lessons
Semi-Private lessons are available once the instructor feels the student is comfortable controlling the horse at a walk and trot. Semi-Private lessons are a great way for our Riding Academy students to prepare for Select Academy Team!
One of our favorite teaching tools is our Freedman Double Saddle. This saddle allows the instructor to be on the horse's back with the student. With the double saddle, riders are able to rapidly develop new riding skills and muscle memory. Our Tiny Tots and Lesson students alike benefit greatly from the use of the double saddle!
The time for lessons indicates actual on-horse riding time. All of our students are encouraged to arrive early and stay after their lessons for hands on time with the horses learning grooming, tacking, and horse handling.
