English Lessons
At North Garden Equestrian Center, our lesson program is based on the belief that students benefit from a strong foundation in the basics of horsemanship. From the very first lesson, our students learn safe, effective methods of handling and riding horses, and develop a compassionate attitude towards animals that will last a lifetime.
Many of the students in our hunt-seat program ride simply as a hobby, while others enjoy jumping and showing successfully at local horse shows.
Students often choose to lease or buy horses with the support of NGEC programs.
