CH Equine Riding Lessons
Weekly lessons are a great way to get started with a new horse riding adventure, become comfortable again in the saddle after a long leave from horses or progress to being an advanced rider and/or competitor. For the more seasoned rider, weekly lesson are beneficial to prevent habits from developing and ensure that you stay on a progressive path. Having consistency with your instruction is just as important as being consistent with your horse. Safety for the horse and rider is our first priority. Your lesson will be customized to meet your needs and abilities. Every student learns differently and progresses at their own pace. How fast a student progresses depends on their abilities and frequency of lessons. Our peaceful environment and numerous places to ride make our facility a great place to learn and get exposure to different things and situations.
As a student progresses, lessons become more challenging both physically and mentally. We do not just teach students how to do maneuvers, but also why we do maneuvers in a certain way. This gives more knowledge to the rider and prevents any confusion or hesitation when they are riding.
Private Lessons are 45 minutes and Group & Semi Private Lessons are 1 hour. There is a discount if you purchase lessons in a package.
In order to assess your riding level, Cody Harrison likes to have new students start out in private lessons before advancing to a group or semi private lesson. You can haul your horse in for lessons, or we can provide you with a school horse. There is no extra cost for this service.
Please be sure to check availability before making payment online.
CH Equine Colorado Horse Training
Cody Harrison uses systematic training that will physically develop your horse and allow him to mentally understand what is being asked of him. Every horse that comes to CH Equine has his own personalized training program. This consists of a combination of Lunging, Work-In-Hand (groundwork) and Riding. The basics are covered thoroughly, which makes advancing to higher levels much easier. It is important that a horse not only does the maneuvers you ask of him, but also does so in a calm, relaxed manner. To achieve this, you must take your time teaching the horse so that he understands what is being asked of him, not just reacting to you.
CH Equine will work on developing your horses trust. After this is accomplished, we can now be the leader your horse is looking for. The first thing we will teach your horse is consistency at all the gaits. After that is accomplished, we then work on lateral movements and add more collection and speed, but never exceeding what the horse understands or is capable of performing.
Our goal is for your horse to be calmer, more consistent, more knowledgeable and be in better physical shape than when you brought him to our facility for training. We care about your horse and his well-being.
Owner’s are welcome to come visit their horse whenever they like. Just be sure to schedule an appointment if you would like to watch your horse being worked.
