Horseback Riding Lessons
What We Teach
At Baker School of Riding, we believe in teaching more than just horseback riding. We believe in taking the time necessary to develop safe handling and horse care practices, ground work knowledge, and secure and balanced seats in every rider, to help develop confidence and excellence in both the rider and the horse. Whether you are just starting out or are an experienced rider, we want to help you reach your goals.
We approach lessons from the perspective of being horse owners and trainers. We desire to foster lasting partnerships between the horse and rider, where communication, patience, and understanding are key.
We teach from a classical dressage perspective in a multi-discipline barn. Dressage is the foundation of all riding, and we believe it helps every rider learn to work in harmony with their horse. Dressage helps develop the horse in a way that builds strength and flexibility through his body, and helps teach the rider balance, timing, accuracy, and tact with the aids.

Riding lessons are currently available for students aged 5 through adult in dressage, hunt seat and beginning/intermediate western. Students are welcome to bring their own horse or use a BSR lesson horse.
All students are required to wear ASTM-SEI approved riding helmets (helmets are available to rent for $3/ per ride), long pants, and shoes with a smooth sole and one inch catch heel. Group, semi-private, and private ground lessons are also available. Visit our "New Students" Page for more information.
