Cypress Farm

Lesson/Lease programs

We offer lessons for beginners thru intermediate riders on one of our seasoned lesson horses and ponies starting at once a week and can advance up to 3 times a week when ready. Our lessons include private and small group lessons on our safe and capable school horses that are allotted an hour time slot to maximize the time in the saddle. Each student should expect to arrive 20-30 minutes before each lesson to groom and tack up lesson horse and stay after for additional education on horsemanship and care.


For beginning and young riders, we suggest starting out with our lesson package that offers one private lesson per week.  Each lesson is about 30 minutes long.  The 30-minute format is a good starting point for young riders because it minimizes financial commitments, while maximizing time in the saddle.

  • One 30 minute lesson each week

School Horse Lesson Program--$220.00

  • Includes 1 lesson per week on a school horse
