Programs & Riders

Thank you for your interest in riding at Pride Stables!
Pride Stables offers therapeutic horseback riding to pre-registered riders with disabilities in our seasonal sessions. We do not offer one-time lessons or rides/packages (e.g. one-time trail rides).

We are currently not accepting new rider enrollment for our evening and Saturday riding classes.* (*See 07/15 update below)

At this time we are only accepting enrollment for new riders that are able to ride during daytime hours on weekdays.  The times of these classes will vary from mornings to early afternoons on various weekdays. The exact times and days of these classes are determined approximately one month before the fall, winter, and spring sessions begin.

New rider enrollment packages are not available on our website.
If your rider has weekday daytime availability, please call the office 519-653-4686 or email info@pridestables.com to inquire. Note: Riders must be under 180lbs (82kg).

*Update 07/15/19: Fall 2019 – only accepting enrollment of new daytime weekday riders
Winter 2020/Spring 2020 – we may open enrollment for evening/Saturday lists to accept new riders.
Please check with us in early December 2019 to confirm if this is the case.


Weather – Classes run in rain, snow, wind, fog, etc. We ride indoors in inclement weather.
From time to time if a class needs to be cancelled due to extreme weather events (e.g. ice storm), we will call affected riders and change the office voicemail message as soon as possible.
