Spur of the Moment Ranch offers lessons to ranch guests as well as  families in the community. Reservations are necessary for planning. Sturdy shoes, long pants are required. We do have helmets available at the ranch for lesson riders. Our lessons are one on one. They are geared to children, adults who would like to learn to ride, older adults who rode years ago and would like to give it another go.  They can involve any or all of the following activities:

  • Grooming horses
  • Learning tack and saddling
  • Riding in a controlled paddock environment to learn basics, walk, trot, canter, whoa. 
  • Guiding fun challenges around cones, pushing a large soccer ball
  • Trail ride through a beautiful wooded section of the ranch  

If you love horses, but are apprehensive about riding, maybe you would prefer a carriage ride or learning to drive the carriage. Spur of the Moment Ranch has opportunities for both. The roads and fire lanes near the ranch provide a perfect opportunity for stepping back in history and experiencing what it was like to move around in a horse and carriage. Carriage activities are also by appointment.  Again that activity can include one or all of the following:

  • Grooming on a carriage horse
  • Learning about tack on a carriage horse
  • Driving in a controlled environment or out on trails.
