Cedar Lodge Stables presently has 3 full time instructors teaching year around. Each instructor has her level of expertise, and we work hard at matching up the ideal instructor with each student. Please visit our Stable Staff page to get to know our instructors.
CLS has a large weekly following of local riders at all levels. Some of these riders are rank beginners that want to try riding for the first time, some are riders that are just getting ready to start to jump, some are thinking of showing, and some are seasoned show riders that have been with the stable for years. CLS also has a following of clients that live in near by Chicago, Detroit or other near by cities and come to Cedar Lodge on weekends to ride. Often, these clients (who are often campers during summer camp) find that they can get a better riding experience by coming to CLS on weekends year around, then trying to get to stables in their area. The difference in stable costs often make up for the transportation costs! These riders may or may not participate in Riding Weekends, and are riders of all ages and expertise. Some of these riders may also choose to show with Cedar Lodge Stables in the off season. Cedar Lodge works with these clients to meet the needs of their schedules when possible and are willing to pick up at trains or buses when needed. Many of these clients will stay for a night or two in the Cedar Lodge Farm House before they travel home again.
CLS prides itself in it's personalized care of both horse and rider and works hard with each individual to tailor make a program that suits their needs. Our primary goals are that each rider is given a chance to improve, has a great and positive time, and makes steps toward accomplishing their own individual goals.
Lesson times are flexible and run year around with the help of a comfortable indoor riding arena. Cedar Lodge Stables is primarily a Hunter/Jumper Show stables and our expertise is English riding and jumping, however we are also able to teach Western riders at the beginning and intermediate level (through canter proficiency).
Prices:Lesson prices are based on a one hour riding lesson. Students are expected to groom and tack their own horses, and students that do not know how, are taught as part of their initial lessons. All beginner lessons start with basic horse pchycology, grooming and tacking beofre riders enter the riding ring.
*All lessons are based on semi-private fee scale. Though many lessons remain private at these rates, CLS reserves the right to add in riders of the same level if need be. For Private rates, please contact your instructor. Special group and block lesson discounts available.
