Stafford Hills Equitation LLC’s primary purpose is to provide a safe and fun environment to educate horseback riding students and equestrian vaulters. We have a spacious 60’ x 120’ covered riding arena located in the Stafford Hamlet adjacent to West Linn and Lake Oswego, Oregon.
During the school year, riding lessons are offered Wednesday afternoon and evenings. Summer riding lessons are offered Wednesday mornings. They are group lessons consisting of two to four students. Students need to be age 8 or above to be in a group riding lesson. Riding lessons take one hour, including tacking and untacking, with approximately 30 minutes of riding time. Students will participate in ground work with the horses as well as riding the horses. Students will learn how to groom a horse, halter a horse, lead a horse, tack up a horse, and ride a horse. Riding lessons may also include feeding, bathing, and/or clipping a horse.
Lessons are given in English tack. However, we offer bareback and Western riding days also.
In addition, Stafford Hills offers an amazing Equestrian Vaulting program for youth of all ages. If you love gymnastics, dance, horses and fun, vaulting is for you! Furthermore, vaulting is excellent preparation for riding.
