Private Lessons with Lynette Weldon are $60.

Lynette's specialty is training soft, responsive horses and riders to learn  feel and timing in order to advance their riding ability.  You can ride Western, English or both. Lynette's lesson horses range from beginner friendly to advanced reining and finished bridal horses.

Students of Lynette's first master balance and riding with their seat then progress to understanding contact and eventually asking for and understanding real collection, what it means, how it affects the horse and why it is the ultimate goal in riding and training any horse. The objective for Lynette is that her students learn to ride with perfect timing and feel.

If you are ready to take your riding to the next level private lessons with Lynette will get you there.
