Students at NFSE have the opportunity to learn and appreciate educated horsemanship through dedicated, quality instruction and well-schooled mounts. Beginner through advanced lessons are offered and there is a wide choice of horses to compliment the lessons, or you may elect to be taught on your own horse. Our classes give students individual attention plus the stimulus of a group situation. Beginner classes form mid-March and September. Non-beginners may join an appropriate on-going class any time during the year.

Classes are generally scheduled Monday through Thursday at 4pm and 5:30pm and on weekend mornings. They begin promptly and provide a generous hour of instruction, including grooming, tacking up and riding. We require students be at least 6 years old, and there is no age limit for adults. Parents and guardians are allowed to quietly observe the lessons if they so choose.

A 10 lesson package is available. Please call 301.834.9744 for rates and lesson times.

Current students may sign up for week-long riding programs at the NFSE facility.
