We believe that with a solid foundation in these areas, riders can confidently navigate most horses and disciplines. Join us for western riding lessons and elevate your riding prowess in an environment that celebrates the partnership between horse and rider. 



Pony Gang is a wonderful place to learn

We teach everyone how to tack, untack and care for the horse. That includes, grooming, tacking, warming up, riding, and cooling down your horse. We want you learn how to take care of a horse in the event you would ever want to buy one or even lease.


We offer Western horseback riding lessons during the week in the afternoon for most everyone's convenience. We teach Western dressage and Western Ranch horse riding.

Please sign up for your Assessment lesson, so that we can get to know you and see if we are a good fit for your Journey in the Western riding world.

Our beginner western horseback riding lessons run as private (one rider) lessons only, so that you have the full attention of your trainer and can concentrate better on learning and progressing.


When the rider has learned the balanced and independent seat, can control the mount in a walk and trot, then the student will move into group lesson (2 - max 3 riders).



With us you can ride horses without having to own your own riding horses. Our affordable cost of riding lessons give every beginner and experienced the chance to take riding lesson. 


"You got to practice to create the feel!"


Western Horseback riding lessons are usually taken once a week, but we always recommend two weekly lessons, because as in any other sport you can only learn by doing.


Our goal is to create confident and knowledgeable riders while maintaining a safe and positive environment for horse and rider.
