    Dayspring’s private riding lessons program is for beginner, novice and experienced riders. Spending time experiencing the challenges and responsibilities of loving, riding, and taking care of horses, can be a life changing occurrence.  We truly believe horses, may be one of the best tools available for fostering healthy, well-adjusted children and youth. Here are just a few of the important rewards:

  • Horses are the perfect way to have some time to unplug. Learning how to ride a horse can become a welcome alternative to watching TV and playing video games. It can also be a good chance to just hanging out with friends. A young person’s riding habit can evolve into a rewarding life-long hobby or even a career.

  • Learning how to ride a horse is a terrific way to exercise. According to the American Heart Association, about 1 in 3 American kids and teens is overweight or obese. Obesity now tops drug abuse and smoking as the No. 1 health concern of parents. Apart from its aerobic benefits, riding helps develop balance, coordination, flexibility, and much more.

  • Learning how to ride a horse is a great mental-health booster. To take control of a 1,000-pound horse requires skills that promote a person’s self-assurance and sense of competence.

  • Learning how to ride a horse is an excellent way to build character. It promotes such positive character traits as responsibility, accountability, patience, self-discipline, empathy, kindness, and much more.
