HDA offers both English and Western riding lessons, as well as carriage driving lessons. Our students range from 4 years of age to adults and we have lesson horses/ponies for every ability. Regular weekly lessons are one-hour long, although we schedule them one-and-a-half hours apart to allow adequate time for grooming, tacking, etc. Special lesson activities include trail rides, cooling out after a lesson in the sugar bush, games, bareback riding and horsey soccer. 


Riding Semester Lessons
We offer several riding semester packages throughout the year.
  • Semester registration is due a week before the semester begins.
  • During any Semester, a second lesson in a week (Monday-Sunday) is only $20 pay-as-you-go.
