Rushlow’s has four trainers on staff and two additional instructors. Combined we have over 150 years worth of equine experience out in the ring educating riders of all ages.

Our lessons are geared to match the level of the rider(s) adjusting and changing the approach we take to match the individual. We spend time educating our students on all aspects of the horse, from body parts to breed. Our programs cover everything from proper stall etiquette, tacking up a horse, leading the horse, mounting, dismounting, and last but not least, actually riding. 

We have in excess of 12 lesson horses on staff at any given time. Our horses are ready and willing to help teach individuals of all ages about the art of riding. Most of our lesson horses are retired show horses that have had a wealth of experience in the show ring and are now enjoying a second career educating and entertaining others.

Rushlow’s offers lessons in Hunt Seat, Saddle Seat, and Western Pleasure. Each lesson runs on the hour and for an hour in length. 

Riders MUST be at least 6 years of age in order to ride. No exceptions.
