We provide horseback riding instruction with the safety, happiness, and well-being of students and horses being of primary concern.
North Country Animal League’s Equine Center provides horseback riding lessons for all ages and abilities. Our lessons are geared towards building strong fundamentals at all levels while fostering a relationship based on respect and trust between horse and rider. With a focus on the English riding discipline, our experienced instructors will work with riders to help them achieve their personal goals.
Riding lessons are offered in 4-week long sessions throughout the year. In the warmer months, lessons will take place either in our outdoor sand arena or large grass riding field, while on inclement days or during the colder-weather months, lessons will take place in or our spacious indoor riding arena.

Lesson Program Structure
All riders are started in 60-minute private weekly lessons, which includes 30 minutes of horsemanship and 30 minutes of riding for safety and proper instruction.
Novice/intermediate riders arrive early to their lesson to groom and tack their horses. If a rider is still learning, our working students will assist or have your horse ready!
Group and semi-private lessons are offered for novice/intermediate to advanced riders. Group lessons are matched based on ability and rider age. Trainer recommendation required.
Riders do need their own ASTM approved riding helmet and proper riding boots. We will loan a helmet for an initial trial lesson.
We offer lessons Monday through Saturday, giving our equine partners a day of their own on Sunday!
