Riding Academy

At Cape Cod Equestrian Center we offer horseback riding lessons for ages 3 to adults.  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.

Are Riding Lessons for you?

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!

Double Saddle

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.  Want more hands on time with our wonderful lesson horses?  Check out our Training Days
