Our Horseback Riding Lesson Program
Horse-n-Around at The Mitchell Ranch/Watsonville, CA
Our riding lesson program has been developed especially for young beginners,
though a valuable program for all ages.  We limit lead line work to building the
correct foundation and to establish confidence.   Our students will then be able
to safely progress to independent/supervised riding.

We accept and welcome beginning students of all ages.  Students will learn
through "Natural Horsemanship" methods and techniques how horses think
and respond.  With this knowledge, our students will develop safe ground
manners, learning to be around and work with horses safely.

Our lesson program is flexible to fit the needs of each student.

We work hard at keeping our lesson program affordable to allow all those who
wish to pursue horses an opportunity to work with these wonderful creatures.

Our lessons run approximately 1 hour long, one or more times per week.  The
lessons will be part ground work as well as part work in the saddle.  Lesson
times will be scheduled on an individual basis.

New challenges will be presented on a regular basis as well as always
reviewing foundation work.  This approach ensures that each student
continue to progress in a positive and safe manner.

Students will develop trust between them and their horse.  They will learn to
work as a team with the horse and instructor.

Through this process self esteem, self confidence, physical strength, trust and
reward for hard work are just a few of the qualities our students will develop.

Safety is always our primary focus.  We require and provide helmets for all our
Lesson Fees:    $45.00 per session. **Visa/Master Cards Accepted through PayPal**       

Gift certificates also available -  a great gift idea!

Horse/Pony Leasing Available:

Occasionally the ranch has horses or ponies available for lease.

Leasing a horse allows riding students more time to practice their riding and develop their horsemanship
skills.  It also gives them a chance to really bond with their horse and experience horse ownership with out
the stress of searching for the right horse or the long term commitment.

Leases run month to month, paid one month in advance.

Email us for more info on our lesson program, to register, or to inquire about our schooling horses available
for lease.

Payments can be made using Credit/Debit Cards through PayPal.
We encourage and invite anyone who may be interested in
participating in any of our programs to come out to the ranch, meet
us and our horses.  We will gladly show you around the ranch and
introduce you to our various programs.  We will answer any
questions you may have and can review the necessary registration
procedure.  Call us to schedule a free "Meet & Greet" visit. This will
ensure we have the time set aside to visit with you and answer all
your questions.
We are passionate about horses and what they can bring to all of
us!  We love to share that passion and look forward to introducing
you to the wonderful world of horses.
