Urbana Riding Club Lesson Schedule, Leasing, & Practice Ride Programs
Horseback Riding Lessons
We accept students ages 6 through adult into our regular lesson programs. Children ages 6-9 are encouraged to enroll in either private or our individually-assisted small group lessons to safely gain the initial strength and coordination to handle a horse in a group situation. Quarterly lesson options are currently offered on weekday afternoons and all day Saturdays. For children aged 4-6, please contact us to discuss instructional options.
We do not require formal riding attire; riders must wear long pants and closed-toe boots/footwear with a heel. We have riding helmets to initially loan to students - all riders must wear ASTM-certified riding helmets.
Our qualified instructors are continually improving their skills through training, certification, competition and clinics. They pass along their experiences and valuable information on to students in a way that is both fun and challenging, with a consistent emphasis on safety, care and kindness to the horses.
URC invites you to take part in an INTRODUCTORY GROUP LESSON -- you’ll get a chance to see the facilities, meet our staff and horses. Please contact our office to schedule.
