Horseback Riding Lessons

Good horsemanship requires that a rider control the animal’s direction, gait, and speed with maximum effectiveness and minimum efforts.

When beginning your lessons at Criswood Farm will strive to help you achieve this goal.

  • We offer instruction in both English and Western riding.
  • We teach beginner through advanced students.
  • Our instructors are accredited.
  • We offer private, semi-private and small group lessons.
  • Lessons are available in the morning, weeknight and weekend.
  • We have a large 105’ x 200’ indoor arena with lights and a 150’ x 250’ outdoor arena with lights.
