Private Lessons for Kids and Adults
We offer Private Lessons for Kids and Adults. We practice skills on the grass and dirt first, before heading on a coached ride, to practice these skills. We recommend approximately 1 1/2 – 2 hours per lesson. If forming your own group in a private, all participants must be of the same level. Maximum group size for a private is 5 people. Please fill out the Private Lesson form below and email it to us. We will then contact you to talk further about setting up your private lesson.
