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.
  • Pony Clubbers receive a $10 discount off any 8 week Semester package.
  • Students who ride during the Early Spring or Late Spring Semester receive a $50 discount off the Summer Semester packages, making it the same price as the Late Spring Semester.
  • During any Semester, a second lesson is only $20 pay-as-you-go.
