Kentucky Horse Park Horseback Riding Lesson Program

We offer beginner level English and Western horseback riding lessons. Lessons will be available to schedule March – November based upon the availability of our riding instructors and weather.

Private Lessons - $50

Our Private lessons are 30 minutes of one-on-one time with your instructor. All first-time lessons will be scheduled as private lessons. Our instructors would like to know you personally and find out more about your interest in riding. Your instructor will discuss the lesson program that best suits your needs based upon this interaction.

Semi-Private Lessons - $40

Our Semi-Private lessons are 45 minutes of just two individuals and an instructor. These lessons are a great stepping stone for those who eventually wish to move on to a group lesson.

Group Lessons - $30

Our Group Lessons are 60 minutes with no more than four individuals in a group. These lessons are designed for riders that are close to becoming graduates of the beginner level riding program or have demonstrated ability.
