Our Lesson Program
At Verrill Stables we believe that horseback riding and horsemanship can play a pivotal role in teaching us all some of life's most important lessons. Whether you are the parents of a child who is interested in riding horses for the first time or you are an adult looking to get back into riding, or even to ride for the first time, we have built our lesson program for you.
Horses are incredible animals and we believe that in the right environment, being around them offers each of us the opportunity to improve our self-awareness, hone a strong work ethic & develop an heir of confidence that will pay dividends in life and go well beyond the walls of the barn.
We have developed a comprehensive lesson program that offers our customers an easy to manage schedule and helps maximize your time with the horses. Below we've outlined the different packages that we offer. Please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to talk with one of our instructors about which package is best suited for you. If your are a current customer, we appreciate your business. If you are new to us and thinking about riding with us, we look forward to seeing you soon.
