Riding Lesson Information
Lessons at URC:
We instruct students aged 4 through Adult
Riders aged 6 through Adult may enroll in group lessons and when appropriate, participate in our RideShare Lease and Practice Ride programs.
If your child is under age 6, please give us a call to discuss various lesson options.
Urbana Riding Club invites you to take an introductory lesson where you’ll get a chance to see the facilities, meet our staff and horses, and sample a lesson.
If you have previous riding experience, look at our lesson schedule for an appropriate lesson day/time/level you'd like to try that fits your schedule.
If you have no previous riding experience, no problem! We work with brand new riders all the time -
Give us a call to schedule any type or level of intro. We want to ensure you're here at a time best suited for your experience.
While we do not require formal riding attire, long pants are always dvised and closed-toe shoes with a short heel are required.
We have riding helmets to lend you initially to minimize your expenses while you are giving the exciting sport of horseback riding a try. All riders must wear ASTM-certified riding helmets when mounted.
