Our mission at Greenbriar Riding Academy, Inc. is to provide quality school horses, equipment and programs that will allow students to discover the magical world of horses in a safe, entertaining environment without the need to own their own horses. Weekly riding lessons are offered Monday through Thursday and all day on Saturday year round to students ages six through adult. Our riding instructors have a deep understanding of horse psychology as well an in depth knowledge of the human anatomy and how it interacts with the movement of the horse in motion. They are trained to assist students in developing the skills necessary to effectively communicate with a horse. Regardless of the riding discipline, Greenbriar will instill in their students a solid foundation of riding basics. Our instructors also know that horseback riding enhances such personal skills as responsibility, self-esteem, good judgement, self-reliance and an “I can do it!” attitude.
In addition to the weekly riding lesson program, Greenbriar offers Summer Day Camps from 8am-noon Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during the months of June, July and August. The Summer Day Camp program is designed to develop in the student the necessary skills to safely ride and/or own a horse. There are six levels in our program. Each level covers subjects within each of the following areas – Riding Skills, Horse Handling Skills, Equipment Knowledge and Horse Health. A certificate is awarded upon completion of each level.
Camps limited to adults only are offered during the spring and fall.
