Philosophy


South Mountain School of Horsemanship aims to create well-balanced and confident riders. We do not stress showing and competition, but rather focus on FUN and good horsemanship.


We provide lessons that focus on: riding, horse care and management, training, groundwork, and more. We accept students with no experience, as well as advanced riders looking to expand their knowledge or get back into riding after a long hiatus. Our group lessons are limited to four riders, to ensure the individualized attention that every student deserves.


We offer a discounted rate for the first lesson in order to gauge whether our teaching style and facilities are appropriate and suitable for each student. 


​What's the best part about South Mountain School of Horsemanship? SMSH is an adult only lesson program! You can learn about horses and riding while making new friends! SMSH holds a very high standard for the students we accept - No, you don't need to be a great rider, you just need to be friendly and ready to learn! Students here enjoy hanging out together, helping one another, and connecting at barn parties as well as outside of lessons!
