Assessment lessons determine your skill level and learning style and are used to pair you up with the best instructor and horse for your goals and abilities. This is not a test! We will absolutely help you and assist where necessary in addition to provide instruction throughout your ride.

Group Lessons - Intermediates & Advanced Riders

Group lessons last 1 hour and you are expected to arrive 10-15 minutes early. Group lessons are offered when 3 riders of similar ages, experience and abilities wish to ride together to save money and spend more time working on skills individually.

Ages 5 to 105 - it's never too early or to late to get started in this lifelong sport!

Group Lessons require that you have your own set of riding boots, riding helmet and proper riding breeches.

We require that students interested in group lessons who are new to Capriole Academy take part in an assessment lesson and/or a package of 4 private lessons. Safety is our top priority and we care deeply about the horses we use in lessons - as a result we require that students have independent hands and seats before being allowed to join group lessons.


Group lessons follow the Capriole Academy curriculum developed by Dianna Epps and Katrina Per - jumping, dressage and drill skills are worked on. Advanced students may wish to take group Jumping and polework Lessons - we highly recommend this.
