Riding Lessons 6 years and up

Horseback riding instruction at Pony Gang Equestrian Services in Hopkins, 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 no matter if you ride Western or English – and it is always the main foundation on which our Horseback riding program is based on.

We offer year-round lessons in Western and English riding in our program for anyone over the age of 6.

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 to grooming, tacking up, the care of a horse and even a little horse psychology.
