Hunter / Jumper / English Riding Lesson

Horseback riding instruction at Pony Gang Equestrian Services in Camden, South Carolina emphasizes balance, seat, and legs to communicate with the horse!

  • Trains legs to be in proper position
  • Maintains proper body position
  • Correctly use leg signals
  • Does not rely on stirrups for balance

Equitation and Balance is key to riding – it is the main foundation on which our Horseback riding program is based on.

We offer year-round lessons for anyone over the age of 3. Adults are very welcome in our program.

Our Trainers teach Hunt Seat, Hunter over fences, Hunter Equitation, English and Jumper lessons. With a lifetime of riding experience, our Trainers know just how to explain the proper riding technique

But riding is more than just getting on a horse. Pony Gang Equestrian Services teaches through their curriculum all aspects of horsemanship including but not limited grooming, tacking up, the care of a horse and even a little horse psychology.
