Friday Cavaletti Lessons
Call/Text Bobbie (508) 450-8173 or Email: to sign up

Are you looking to start over-fence work with your horse, mix up your normal routine, or add something extra for back & hind-end strengthening? Try our ADULT CAVALETTI LESSON!

This will be a 1-hour group lesson with up to 4 riders on an every-other week basis. The first half of the lesson will be concentrated on flat work and proper warm-up for our horses, and then the second half will be dedicated to various cavaletti exercises at the walk, trot, and eventually canter. I hope for this to be a fun but educational time for both horse and rider where skill level will of course be recognized so that challenges and growth can come in time.

Be sure to arrive with plenty of time to groom and tack your horse (approx. 30mins before lesson start). $35 per rider. Please contact Bobbie to schedule if interested so that horse assignments can be arranged properly. Call or Text Phone: (508) 450-8173 or Email:
