Description

North Shore Equestrian Centre (NSEC) offers English-style Horseback Riding lessons taught by experienced coaches. Located in a scenic setting,  provides a safe and enjoyable environment for riders of all levels to learn and improve their skills. They offers full-service boarding and horse care services for riders enrolled in their training programs or looking to purchase their own horse in the future. 

  1. Public Riding Lessons: At NSEC, riders aged 8 and above can participate in public riding lessons, even without owning a horse. All they need is a helmet, boots with a defined heel, and appropriate attire. Lessons take place rain or shine in covered arenas to ensure uninterrupted riding sessions.
  2. Weekly Group Lessons: NSEC offers weekly group lessons throughout the year from September to June. Both kids and adults can participate in these 45-minute sessions, which require students to arrive early for grooming and tacking up their horse. Weekly commitment until June is expected, but students can quit with two weeks' notice.
  3. Semi-Private and Private Lessons: For more personalized instruction, NSEC offers semi-private and private lessons, subject to instructor availability. These 45-minute sessions cater to riders seeking individualized attention to enhance their riding skills.
  4. Evaluation Lessons: Evaluation lessons are required for joining group lessons mid-season. These 75-minute sessions include tack up, riding, and untacking portions and are scheduled based on instructor and arena availability.

Requirements:

  • Weight Limit: For the safety of their horses, NSEC has a weight limit of 170lbs for new or beginner riders who haven't learned formal English discipline lessons or posting yet.
  • Required Equipment: Students in weekly riding programs must own an ASTM/SEI certified helmet and English-style riding boots. GreenHawk is recommended for riding equipment and apparel.

For a rewarding horseback riding experience in a picturesque setting, North Shore Equestrian Centre provides quality instruction and facilities for riders of all ages and skill levels.
