About Us

Riding Lessons

Katrina Hutto and Teresa Blackmon head up the instruction staff at Tally Ho. Most lesson students begin in private 1/2 hour lessons at a rate of $40 per lesson. The lessons will instruct the student in how to balance, steer and handle the horse while they progress at their own pace.

When the student is confident and ready they will move into a group lesson where they ride with other students at their same riding level. Groups offer the students an opportunity to meet other fellow horse lovers and watch each other ride and learn together.

Students ride a minimum of one lesson per week and may reschedule for another time if a 24 hour notice is given. For those previously experienced riders, they will progress at their own pace and from their current level.

Lessons run as scheduled; rain or shine. If we have poor weather, then we head indoors and have a hands-on barn lesson. A barn lesson is a wonderful opportunity to learn more skills out of the saddle that the students will need if they hope to own their own horse one day, participate in a horse show, or just learn more about their sport, and being a leader to their horse.

They will learn a broad range of skills, such as : grooming, tacking, blanketing, feeding, getting ready for a horse show, medical care and how to put a horse on a trailer.
