Grown Up Lessons
We learned many years ago that kids are not the only ones who can benefit from Therapeutic Riding.
Many adults also have a deep love of horses, and a need for a fun, safe outdoor activity that also develops confidence and
physical ability. We happily offer lessons to Moms, Dads and any other grown up who wants to participate.
Costs for grown up lessons are the same as any of our regular riding sessions.
What is a Typical Riding Session Like?
Riders will usually begin by grooming and saddling their horses with instruction or assistance as they are able.
Riders will then proceed to the arena and mount. They are instructed on how to ride their horse safely and under the
supervision of an instructor. Usually in a half hour lesson there is about 20 minutes of ride time and about 40 – 45 minutes
in a hour lesson. Riders are taught riding skills depending on their ability. Our primary goal is a safe and happy riding lesson.
What Type of Riding Do We Teach?
HHK teaches basic riding skills using a variety of horses and equipment. Our instructors come from varying backgrounds,
and each has a lot to offer our riders. We have both English and western saddles, but teach basic English seat and rein.
Some riders have become advanced enough to help school our horses or become instructors. When riders become too
advanced for our program, we will refer them to another barn/instructor with great pride.
Riders need not have a diagnosis in order to ride in our program. Therapeutic Riding can benefit just about anybody!
We strive to provide services to as wide a range of clients as possible, however there are certain individuals for whom
therapeutic riding may not be an appropriate activity. Please see the rider signup package above for a list of medical
conditions for which a physician's consent is required prior to providing services.
Contact use at 808-634-3896 with any questions regarding suitability.
While we try to keep our riding sessions as low cost as possible, there are still families that cannot afford to pay for riding sessions. Providing a scholarship for riders allows them to experience the benefits of therapeutic riding. Scholarships can be purchased at the barn or on the website.
