Lessons & Instruction

JL Performance Horses is a community based, riding academy offering comprehensive instruction in horse car and English & Western styles of horseback riding. We welcome everyone who loves horses, from toddlers to seniors. We provide riding lessons for those with a view to compete, improve & master horsemanship skills and for those who are simply looking to ride down the trails. Our stable of friendly, school horses has been carefully selected and is comprised of well-trained, experienced school masters known for keeping our riders safe and building their confidence.  

JL Performance Horses takes great pride in producing capable horsepeople through hands-on horses experiences. Our programs are designed to encourage the student's growth by promoting solid values such as responsibility, confidence, work ethic, leadership and teamwork in a safe, fun, positive environment. Lessons learned, in the saddle and around the barn, are also valuable in setting children up for success in their future life pursuits. 

JL Performance Horses offers specialized riding, grooming and horse knowledge programs, all year round.  We offer affordable, one-on-one, private instruction as well as semi-private lessons and group classes.  

In addition to PRIVATE half-hour and hour riding lessons, JL Performance Horses also offers many other exclusive to our farm programs. Please visit our Program Page for menu  options. 

Please call us on (845) 260-0962 to schedule your private riding lessons.
