At LaRica, we offer individualized instruction for horse and rider. We teach all levels and will move as fast, or slow, as the student wishes. We have students from leadline or first time riders all the way through students riding and competing at the National and World Level
For your budding equestrians:
Tiny Tot Lessons: $125 - 4 lessons/student (Lessons are scheduled weekly) These lessons can be private or semi-private (great for siblings!) and are ideal for children 5 and 6 year old who are horse crazy! Lessons will be a maximum of 1 hour long and include 10-15 minutes of preparation, 20-30 mins of riding, and 10-15 minutes of putting their horse away. A creative “homework” assignment will be given each lesson that will help reinforce what was worked on that day.
***Beginner and Advanced Lessons are also offered in semi-private and group settings as well. Inquire for more information.***
Compadres” Lessons: $100 - 4 lessons/student (Lessons are scheduled weekly) These lessons are for the horse crazy individual that isn’t interested in, or maybe isn’t able to do the riding but wants to be around the horse. Each lesson will last 30 minutes, during which time you will learn general care and upkeep of the horse, as the student is able. The course will include how to clean a stall, feed, halter, lead, and groom/bathe a horse. You’ll learn how to take a horse's temperature, heart rate, and respiration rate. Most of all, you’ll get to spend quality time with a listening ear. These lessons are private so individualized care can be given to each student. These are not “therapy”, but will hopefully help children and adults to connect with themselves and nature.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT LESSONS: If any lesson is missed without notice, the lesson is forfeited. If a lesson must be missed, 24 hour notice is required. A makeup lesson must be scheduled within a 2 week period.
