Opening Number has riding lessons for riders of all ages and skill levels. We want students who know how to ride, as well as understand WHY they do something, regardless of their age. Even our riders under 8 learn how to clean, tack, and ride independently on horses their size. We do want to encourage riders the opportunity to learn ground care for horses, so some lessons may be un-mounted. These lessons typically ​occur with inclement weather or riding conditions.

Lesson Application


If a rider would like to give his/her horse a treat, we ask that you pick from the following list. We request that everything be cut up into bite-sized pieces to prevent choke.

  • Carrots and apples

  • Melons with rinds including watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe.

  • Bananas, berries, apple pieces, grapes, pitted peaches, pitted dates, grapefruit, oranges, melons, pears, pineapple, carrot pieces, celery, lettuce

  • Store bought horse treats, cereal (Froot Loops are a big hit, as are Cherrios) peppermints and sugar cubes

  • Bread or bread products (like muffins) Please just keep the sugar content low
