Although the equestrian sport is measured by individual accomplishments, at Belle Wood Equestrian we promote a supportive team environment. We place a strong focus on proper and efficient rider development. Our coaches work with our lesson clientele to build a solid foundation in equitation and horsemanship. We establish goals with our clients and work towards the end result, whether that is to compete amongst Ontario’s best or simply feel comfortable in the saddle.
The lesson program at Belle Wood is in a one-on-one or semi-private environment, providing the best possible learning experience and more time from our coaches for each student.
Lessons start promptly and students must arrive 45 minutes prior to their lesson in order to properly prepare. Teaching proper horsemanship skills and safety around horses as well as proper equitation is what we strive to do at Belle Wood.
Lessons run on a monthly basis with new enrollments available at the beginning of the month. At the moment, we are currently only offering Private and Semi-Private lessons to Novice, Intermediate and Advanced riders.
