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 accepting enrollment of new riders with disabilities for all classes (weekday daytime, evenings, and Saturdays). Note: Riders must be under 160lbs (72kg); and 5 years of age or older.
New rider enrollment packages are not available on our website.
For more info and to request a new rider enrollment package, please call the office at 519-653-4686 or send us an email.
Weather – Classes run in rain, snow, wind, fog, etc. We ride in the covered arena 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.
Registration forms with class days and times for each session are mailed out to our enrolled rider list about 4 weeks prior to session start.
Please note: All classes are filled on a first come, first served basis and cannot be “reserved” or held over the phone. We must have all forms and payment information to secure your space. Max. 6 riders per class.
Registration forms are mailed out in late August.
Classes run from mid-late September to late November (8-10 weeks – Mon-Fri daytime & evenings; Saturdays)
Registration forms for winter riding are mailed out in early/mid December.
Classes run from mid-late January to late February (6 weeks – select weekday daytime & evenings; Saturdays).
