We hope you and your families stay safe!

The focus of the Village Club equestrian program is the development of horsemanship skills both on and off the horse. Safety is taught from the very beginning and at every level. Focusing on safety allows all riders to enjoy being around horses without unnecessary risk.
The goal of the Village Club lesson program is to help develop the whole rider. Our lessons are geared to meet the needs of the rider while reinforcing positive character development, such as safety, good judgment, responsibility, accountability, and respect.
Our experienced school horses are capable of taking a student from their very first ride through learning to confidently jump small fences.  A rider may use a school horse in a lesson for a nominal fee or ride their own mount.
All riding courses include skills to improve the rider’s position and ability to safely control their horse in the arena. The curriculum is progressive and is designed to build a strong foundation of basic skills and knowledge helping riders to develop confidence at one level before moving up to the next.
The Village Club Riding Program teaches the balanced seat, which is an all-purpose seat which enables
the rider to stay in balance with the horse and influence the horse without the use of force. With a good
basis in the balanced seat, a rider can easily adapt to any style of riding be it jumping, dressage, or western riding.
Horseback riding lessons are available year-round for adults and children.  Children must be 6 years or older to participate.

The Village Club offers boarding for its members' horses. In addition, the Village Club owns several school horses which are available for members to rent during lessons. The stable has 27 box stalls with attached runs. 

Our outdoor riding arena is usable throughout the year. The Highline Canal trail system is easily accessible from the Club property and provides miles of beautiful trails for riding.

Members who keep their horses at different facilities, may bring their horses to the club to use the facilities, take riding lessons, or join other members for recreational riding.
