There is no glory in practice, but without practice, there is no glory.
Peck Farm offers instruction to riders ages 5 to 50
. We specialize in Hunters and Jumpers and Racing,
but we also offer lessons in Western, Trail, and the first two levels of Dressage. Lessons are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and
are booked and paid in advance. Each lesson is 45 minutes long. Beginners may be taught by one of Nance's assistants. Our students own or lease
their horses and ride them for their training. Through our lease program, students
can have the experience of caring for and riding a horse before committing to complete ownership of one. Lessons are paid for by the month (on or before the first).
If you pay for 4 or more lessons in the same month in advance, we discount each lesson by $5.00. Rates are as follows:
- 1 hour private lessons are $75.00
- 1 hour group lessons are $50.00
- Half-hour Private lessons are $50.00
Groups are small and usually have fewer than 5 people in each lesson. In the event you are the only one in a pre-scheduled group,
you will receive a half-hour private for the same price as your scheduled group. Common courtesy requests a 24-hour cancellation
notice. Lessons canceled without adequate notice will count as used; no refunds or credits. Make-up lessons must be used within the same month.
Please wear appropriate riding clothes: English or Western riding boots or paddock boots with schooling chaps or half-chaps. Pants
may be jeans or breeches. We prefer tops tucked into pants and a belt for a more professional look. This also helps us see your
equitation better and for safety. Hair should be tied back and not loose. Please keep jewelry to a necessary minimum. Gloves are recommended.
All shoes must have a smooth sole and a heel. You must wear a helmet for all lessons and jumping; we have a few
here, but you are encouraged to bring your own. Make sure to bring sunscreen, hats, and lots of water. There is a beverage and snack
machine on the patio.
