Free Heart Stables offers lessons for all ages and skill levels both on your horse or ours. Joining our program will give you a deeper connection with horses as you learn to communicate effortlessly and develop the skills needed to meet your goals.

Online Scheduler

We offer several different options for riders of all backgrounds as well as those just getting started. If you have your own horse we offer traditional private and group lessons. For more information on these services check our section on Lessons on Your Horse. For those who do not have the pleasure of owning their own horse we offer Lease Programs with options to participate in rated horse shows and Lesson Packages on School Horses. Riding can be a great way to increase fitness, improve mental health, and meet new friends. If you are already riding or even have your own horse we would be happy to be a part of your continued journey.

Free Heart Stables is a Hunter Jumper barn, but our background in Dressage and Natural Horsemanship allows us to help riders of all disciplines develop a solid foundation. We specialize in helping riders who are struggling with fear or horse behavioral issues. We regularly include groundwork in our lessons to build stronger relationships and enhance communication between horse and rider. We also offer lessons only in ground work for clients with specific needs. For more information on our instructors and our experience please see our About Us page.

Teaching Philosophy

Free Heart Stables’ riding program centers on building a solid foundation both in and out of the saddle. Rider’s position is a constant focus in order to ensure that riders are safe and able to move forward in their riding. Groundwork is utilized to help riders develop the horsemanship, feel, and timing necessary to communicate effectively with the horse, resulting in a more relaxed and willing partner. Horsemanship is integrated into our program to ensure that we are producing well-rounded riders. An emphasis is placed on the rider’s physical and mental preparedness for tasks to ensure confidence and enjoyment, both critical to the continuation of a rider’s career. Each lesson is tailored specifically to the individual to address their unique needs and goals. This allows riders to get the most out of each lesson, resulting in greater confidence, learning, and enjoyment.

Lessons on Your Horse

Free Heart Stables welcomes riders to haul in for lessons or board their horse with us and sign up for a training package. For more information on training packages and boarding with us click here.

For riders with their own horse we offer traditional 45 minute private and group lessons tailored to your individual needs. Our gorgeous facilities include an outdoor arena with a full jump course, round pens, and a small indoor ideal for working the young or problem horse without many distractions. Hauling in is easy and provides top of the line facilities for you to continue your training. Lessons can be scheduled online using the scheduler below or you can contact us to discuss your individual needs.

Lesson Packages on Our School Horses

For riders that have experience riding and tacking up their own horse we offer monthly group lesson packages. We do offer private lessons on our horses for beginners looking to learn the basics. Lessons are a fun way to learn new skills and progress in your riding in a casual, laid-back environment. While we do focus on working towards your goals, we also know that many people take lessons simply for the pleasure of riding. We offer group lessons in jumping, dressage, basic flat work, and everything in between. All ages are welcome and we even have a special class on Saturdays for the little ones. Contact us today to find a group that matches your skills and goals to continue on your riding journey!

Due to COVID-19 we are currently offering private lessons for all levels on our school horses, which can be booked using the Online Scheduler below.
