The Riding Academy at Wilson Hill Stables

We have lots of young horse crazy riders who come to Wilson Hill Stables to learn both English and Western riding styles.

We teach beginners the basics with a safety based program that builds skills steadily each week. We aim to keep students safe by progressing the lessons to the individuals riding level and skill set, keeping the rider comfortable and confident.

WHS Riding lessons are always set up as one-on-one private lessons, we are happy offer two lesson packages for our students to choose from.

Half Hour Private lesson each week for the Month – this package is $108 Monthly.

Hour Private lesson each week for the Month – this package is $216 Monthly.

We offer a free introductory lesson that introduces safety, grooming, tacking up, leading, mounting, discounting, riding lesson routines and vocabulary of the riding arena. This is perfect for taking some of the pressure of the first meeting and helps ease in new experiences. It also gives us a chance to develop a conversation with a new student to help ease nervousness.

Maura, Emma, and Jessica at the All Horse Parade 2014

We not only offer Riding Academy Style Packages but we also offer our students an opportunity to experience showing a horse! We are very proud of all of our students who work hard at the shows, but one of our best moments of 2014 was watching Jessica win the coveted Delaware County 4H Fair Versatility Championship! Other highlights from 2014 include Emma winning High Point Beginner Exhibitor, Maura earning Reserve Champion Hunter Under Saddle, Evan winning the Champion of Champions Showmanship, and Ellie was a point earner at an Ohio Pinto Show in Showmanship at Halter – All the kids worked so hard for their victories, and they were well deserved!

Most of our award winners have been students at Wilson Hill for the entirety of their career in riding. Proud to say we helped to develop and build these riders from the ground up!!

What Horses Teach Us

I guess you could say Horses and Humans have had this curiosity for each other for centuries…it is a magical experience when you really think about it; the bond that can be created between horse and rider. Horses are animals that have this spirit inside of them, they challenge you and make you build a mutually beneficial relationship based on respect. When you work with Horses you have to become intuitive, thoughtful, and steady to earn their responsiveness to your cues. You have to be aware and in the moment to stay safe, you have to read the emotional state of your horse, and you have to build your leadership skills to succeed. Riding Horses is the ultimate character building activity, the traits developed while being an active Equestrian spill over to every aspect of life!

Lauren and Doublestuff at a Fun Show around 2009.

In my life, horses have taught me many things. The biggest lesson that I have been lucky enough to learn is that with hard work and dedication ANYTHING is possible. This is the main thing I try to stress to my students; it may not be easy, pretty, or simple but dedication will pay off!

Merry Christmas – I got you the Flu!

Don’t Say I Never Got You Anything!

We have been bundled up, aching, hacking, and in general misery at WHS.

We have some great moments from the Ranch Horse Pleasure Clinic that we still need to download – but don’t worry, we will totally share it here!

For now I am relegated to the bed, but my adorable Jack Russell “Tater” is right on top of making sure I am ok, literally…
