Riding Lessons at Cottonwood Creek Ranch

Horseback Riding Lessons for beginners to experience riders at our facility in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

Horses provide us all with an opportunity to be excited and passionate about an activity They help teach responsibility, empathy towards caring for another being, improve balance, exercise, and enjoy a feeling of accomplishment and self worth that comes from achieving small goals everyday. We teach with smiles and positive reinforcement with both our horses and students.
We realize that all students progress at different levels and adjust our lessons accordingly. Our students learn to groom and tack up their own horses as well as put them away after their lessons. It makes for a better understanding of the horses and teaches our riders responsibility and proper care of the animals.
